So much for getting back to blogging every day. It has been several days again. No excuses really. The usual busy schedule with school and work. Got my regular schedule back last week and this week which has been nice. Especially having back to back days off For a couple weeks now.
I was really feeling crunched with school last week. I don’t know what I got on those 6 Health Psychology assignments yet. However, I actually got full points on the paper for my Gender and Crime class. I was disappointed in leaving it until the last minute, and I felt it was too short though there were no specific length requirements. I’m happy I pulled out a great grade, but I don’t want to leave the next one for the last minute. I feel I’m getting back on an even track this week with school, so I’m happy with that.
I went shopping today and got a dress to wear for the wedding. I haven’t worn a dress in I don’t know how many years. I thought I’d be looking for days and at multiple places, but I surprisingly found one at the first place I went. I was so happy. I loved the dress and it fit perfectly, and it’s something I can wear for church or other occasions and is not just a one time wear. The one I tried on fit nicely and was down a couple sizes from where I’ve been, but I decided to try going down another size as there was some looseness there. And lo and behold the next size down fit. The old me would have gone with the larger size still, but the new me was like nope. It looks good on you and you’re still losing weight so go with the smaller size. I haven’t worn this size in years, so it felt especially good to see the progress I’ve been making. Feeling really good about my progress, and the dress made me more motivated to continue on my health and weight loss journey. I also bought a pair of earrings and a bracelet to go with the dress. And I bought 3 necklaces. Not sure which one I will wear with the dress. I also bought a purse for the wedding. And I got new shoes, but I’m not sure if they’re right for the dress or not. They’re super cute though so I might keep them anyways. I need to try them on together and see. I can’t believe the wedding is just a couple of weeks away now! Matt and Wendy are both super anxious and excited.
Continuing on my quest this year of putting myself out there, I applied to a job recently. A job I could see myself doing and would be passionate about as it’s something I’m interested in. After applying, you had to call and talk to a recruiter and go through a phone interview. I almost let that stop me and didn’t call. But, the new me was like no, you’re doing this. It was quite nerve wracking. I’m not good at coming up with answers to questions on the spot as I tend to analyze and think through things a lot before expressing myself. But, I did the best I could and I think I did pretty well. The recruiter said I’d know in a couple of weeks if I was moving on to the next step. I would love it if I do move on as it’s something I really want. But, even if I don’t get it, I feel good about taking a chance and applying and going for it. That’s the only way that my current situation is going to change. I came across another job opportunity tonight that I’m excited about. They’re doing interviews Monday night. I really want to go interview and am hoping I can make that happen, but I usually work on Mondays, so I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to. But, I’m hoping I can make it work somehow because I really want to interview as scary as it is to me and to give it a shot. The job itself isn’t as exciting as the other one I applied to, but it’s at a place I’d be excited to work at and the schedule would be fantastic! So we’ll see.
