Still in Edmonton. I managed to swing some seasonal shifts at Anthropologie that turned out to be a whole lotta shifts. I've been there almost every day but I am grateful for the work. Three weeks off from school means very little money for me.
Anthropologie has been great, they're having some killer sales that I capitalized on for Christmas gift giving and Christmas money getting, YES! I loooove employee discounts. I've been having to step up the cuteness quotient in my dressing so all the gorgeous girls there don't put me to shame. I've also decided that I am kind of loving the brown hair thing and it may have to be a semi-permanent fixture. I took some cute brown hair pictures of myself the other day (for documentary purposes only, of course).
Shamelessly flaunting my hipster glasses and dark hair.
I've been doing a lot of thinking about life lately. I turned 27 last month and it sort of breezed by unnoticed without my usual birthday oldness funk. It did seem to catch up with me in December in the midst of what feels like a lot of bad luck all at once. I am questioning what I've done with my life, what I should be doing and how the heck to do it. I am in love with Seattle and so glad I moved to the west coast but I feel a bit lost. Stuck in the spot between schooling and real life but when I really think about it, this is my real life. Eesh. What am I doing with it? I love love love the kids I teach but I do that 11 hours a week and what am I supposed to do with the rest of my time? I'm nannying a little boy whom I love but I feel like I'm in between something, at least I hope I am. I've been looking into possibly going back to school to get a degree in graphic design and illustration and I've been trying to figure out what I would want to do as a 'real' job. One I could actually get... stay tuned.
