Hello, Internet! I've been absolute rubbish at blogging lately. Life has been crazy and for some reason I've felt very censored about posting publicly - which is stupid, because I've literally been doing this for years and I've made some of my best friends through blogging. So I'm going to try to post semi regularly again. But first, some updates on how my life is going.
I'm still at Francesca's, but in November of last year I was promoted to the full time assistant manager of one of the stores in a mall. Being in a mall for the first time in my retail career has been an adjustment, but I love my store and my team. I was acting manager for two months and that was a great learning experience, and I know I want to be a manager someday, but not yet. For now I'm happy to be assistant manager to my new (awesome!) store manager.
My boyfriend and I broke up in late December. It was a weird experience. For months and months I thought that if we ever broke up I would be crushed/heart broken/at my wits end. Then it happened... And I was surprisingly ok. Not going to say I didn't have my moments of sadness, but as Mr Collins of Pride and Predjudice so eloquently put it once - for as they say, even a broken clock is right twice a day - "resignation is never so perfect as when the blessing denied begins to loose somewhat of its value in our estimation." So, yeah. Basically I'm a-ok.
In September I moved in with two of my best friends just over the border in Wisconsin. It ended up not being the best of situations so I'll be moving again at the end of the month, to an adorable, little, one bedroom, upper apartment about ten minutes north of where I am now. I'm really excited. Living alone has always been a dream of mine, but I wasn't sure if be able to find a place I could afford. As always, however, God provided exactly what I needed and I'm excited to start this new chapter of my life (as well as being able to decorate it however I choose!).
I've actually been really happy with my style and the pieces I own lately! I mean, I better be considering how many I have! Working at Francesca's is seriously dangerous for me, y'all! The only problem is that I'm lazy and haven't been taking pictures for this lil' piece of the Internet. Boo! I'm going to try to do better as the weather warms up.
So yeah, that's what I've been up to lately! Just lots of working and thrifting and getting ready to move. Spring is for new beginnings, right?
