Thank You.

Let me start this post with a humongous THANK YOU to all of you who took the time to share your love and support. I am so floored by how many of you commented, emailed, and messaged me words of encouragement over the weekend. I am feeling a lot better now thanks to your contagious positivity! I started this blog two years ago not expecting the support I get from such an amazing community. You guys inspire me to keep my head up and never give up. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 
Like I said I would, I took time off from the interwebs and applying for jobs over the weekend and focused on enjoying my hobbies. If you follow on Instagram, you may already know that I stopped by our local comic book shop to pick up our weekly pull list, but I also treated myself to a new trade (Teen Titans by Geoff Johns, in case you're curious!) and a few old titles. I spent the rest of Saturday alternating between reading and playing even more Dragon's Crown. B and I also tried the sandwiches and salads at Russell's Cafe, a great cafe nestled in a great, artsy neighborhood. 
I got 1/2 of the BLAT- bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato- sandwich with half a serving of their Kitchen Sink salad. Even after shoveling forkful after forkful of deliciousness in my mouth, I barely made a dent in my order and ended up taking more than half of this home! 

It's been so long since I wore this panda skirt, last seen here, but I swear, it's one of my favorites because of the print and the pleats. I got the fabric from a local shop in Illinois that sells the cutest fabric ever. If I could afford to, I would definitely buy them out! Wearing this has also definitely inspired me to start making more skirts to wear and finally start using up the yards and yards of fabric I've hoarded!

  3. I just read your last post, so sorry you're feeling that way. I went through the same thing a few weeks back. It sucks when you put all your time and effort into a CV and it never gets noticed especially when you know that you are perfect for the job! I remember applying to a job that I wasn't even sure I could do at all and figured they wouldn't hire me, but I was hired and I worked there for 3 years! So this time around I do the same, apply, let go, and apply to something else.

    I'm glad you took time off to do the things that relax you, maybe it was just all too taxing, best to ease yourself back into it and just keep at it. :) *hugs*


  4. I'm glad things are looking up a bit! Sounds like a great weekend, just what the doctor ordered!

    And can I say, I LOVE your panda skirt. Super adorable. And also that BLAT looks delicious!

  5. My word that sarnie looks insanely good and making me very hungry just looking at it! Glad things are looking brighter for you!

  6. BLAT makes me giggle. I like to order LT's (lettuce and tomato) sometimes and servers always think I'm a nutso. Sometimes a girl just wants someone else to make her lettuce and tomato on some toast, though, you know?

  7. You look positively radiant, Laura! Your makeup is gorgeous, as well :) That meal looks so yummy - I love places where you can get a little bit of everything!

  8. Oh really cute skirt!
