You guys, it's been a very busy week! I started my new job on Monday, and my routine has pretty much been: wake up early, go to work, come home, and plop all night. Yeah, I said it. I just veg out in front of the TV, watching episode after episode of Breaking Bad or reading mindless fiction. And guess what.... I love it. :)
After I wrote this post, I decided to sit myself down and take a long, hard look at myself, my interests, my skills. Up until that point, I had been applying to tons of academic administration and student support jobs, and hadn't gotten any kind of response. Then, it dawned on me that I would be much happier working a more creative job, even though it would be unrelated to my training and education. So, I started applying to those kinds of jobs. I immediately felt more motivated writing cover letters and revamping my resume. And, just like that, I started getting inquiries and interviews! A couple of weeks ago, I accepted an offer from a marketing/advertising company and started work this week. And I am loving every moment of it. It's a corporate job, and I cannot believe that I'm this excited about getting my own cubicle, but I am!
To celebrate my offer, I donned this cat dress and bought myself some Korean tacos. Because I find there is no better way to celebrate than stuff my face with spicy, beefy, cheesy goodness. As I stepped out of the restaurant, I got a few stares from passers-by, probably because I paired the dress with my cat hat OR possibly because I had taco sauce all over my face.
