Things are starting to look up for me and I hope that they continue because my life always has a way of balancing itself just as things start to look up. Some people call me a pessimist, but I just don’t like the feeling of disappointment. So instead of simply expecting the best (which I do), I still prepare for the worst.
But anyway… on with the celebrations!
The first thing I want to celebrate is how successful my first day of work was. In fact, I would go as far as saying it was the most successful first day I’ve ever had. Now, before you become all impressed – don’t. I didn’t do much, but I did it ten times better than the guy I’m replacing and it is the only reason I had such a successful day. But I’m celebrating anyway!
The second thing I want to celebrate is that Lady Rose (Diet Pulpit, Stir the Cauldron & Entrecard Cookbook) did a special tarot reading for some entrecards recently and I was lucky enough to have my card chosen for a reading! You can read her post and see for yourself how talented this lady is! And not only that, but I won a 1 week spot on her blog from a contest that Stan recently held. Just feel the love!!
Lastly, and by no means least(ly?) I was able to meet one of my favourite bloggers, xEricax from fiveblondes.com!! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend the whole day together on account of my interview at 11am that day. But I’m grateful for the opportunity to meet her and I hope I can visit her in her home city one day! Thanks again for thinking of me when you knew you were going to be in town Erica!
Oh, I almost forgot… I’m also celebrating getting new glasses (for real, this isn’t a paid post!!) I’ve been wearing glasses for 16 years and this is the first time I’ve been excited about glasses. They’re a departure from the frames I tend to get in that this the thickest frame I’ve ever gotten. I used to prefer thinner frames because I hated looking like I was wearing glasses, but I guess I’ve outgrown that silliness.
EDIT: I’m taking a break from Monday Madness, read the archives if you like.
