This day was one of the warmer ones we've had, and I was so pumped that I decided to wear all the colors I could to celebrate. Plus I have been wanting to wear these new coral pumps I recently got from Kohl's. It was a lucky day when I bought these because I received a call from the library that I had interviewed for (and got turned down at) saying that they actually had another position that would be open in the summer and they were willing to start me earlier with just a few hours until the person I am replacing leaves! Then I went to Kohl's and even though these shoes were mysteriously discontinued and they didn't have my size the last 2 or 3 times I checked, I decided to check again anyway just in case. To my surprise, there they were on the shelf in my size...the only one left! I was so excited. Plus, I had a $5 off coupon and gift cards, so I didn't have to pay anything for them! It was almost like I drank a bit of liquid luck from the Harry Potter series...haha.
I had a feeling that 2014 would be my year. I had a feeling it would be a year of growth, change, success, and progress. There are so many opportunities that have been arising and it's all very exciting, though I have to admit that I am a little scared of the stress and time constraints they might bring especially in regards to this blog.
I worked my first shift at the library Monday night and my second shift this morning, and I absolutely love it. Ever since I was a teenager, I think I just knew that it was the right place for me. I gave up on the idea for a bit and pursued other studies in my undergrad, but I finally made my way back to it. As my dad put it when I told him I got the job, "You had a dream, and it came true!". I think this was always my dream in the back of my mind and I'm so happy to have finally achieved it. I hope the rest of the year is as good as these first few months!
