My Christmas wish

I can't believe a year has passed already! It may be the best year of my life so far and I'm so happy and thankful.

I've been interviewing for a position in education sales with the leading publisher of education materials and after 5 interviews they are finalizing the recruitment process and checking my background and references! It's so exciting to move into a salaried position with so much room to grow and really feel I am embarking on a career path. While my position would be an account manager, consulting and selling to school districts- the company has a great leadership team and for this role I could move into curriculum development or even field sales.

My Christmas wish came true! In my personal life, everything feels so full and happy. I have amazing friends, a very sweet man that loves me and never forgets to express it, and the best mother and sister I could ask for. Throw in my brother, his gf and my nieces and I am completely ok if there is not one gift coming my way.

It's crazy to reflect on the past year and how much has changed... It's been an amazing year and I can't wait to create more memories with everyone I love this year! Plus I'll be getting a nice raise and that means more opportunity for travel and vacations!

Miss you all and love you peeps!

Moving up and moving out

My lover and I finally found a place and we couldn't be happier. It's the cutest apartment and everything has been remodeled very nicely. I'll post photos next week... I'm super excited the rent included utilities because the electric can run high wih all the heat.

We were denied at a not so nice place and approved at a really nice place? I wanna go back to the first place we tried to rent and tell the leading agent he is an idiot.

I also have an interview for a career working for an education company which would be so cool. Normally sales isn't my thing, however I realized it's pretty much what I do all day- saving the business of upset customers. My numbers are really good and I figure I can definitely sell educational products because it's what I know. The salary is waaaay better and with commission I could finally start establishing myself financially. Even if it doesn't work out- my applications and resume are actually getting viewed and that feels good.

The rules at my company are insanely strict and unreasonable. For instance, as of December 24th- any punch one minute late or more counts as a partial absence. Really? This is not the military. This really makes me so angry when I know that a coworker on my team got away with calling his cell phone and leaving his desk for hours at a time- he would call his cell so he could t get any inbound calls but his status showed ready so it seemed like he was working. So- he gets paid for pretty much doing nothing but I will possibly get fired for a few one minute late punch ins????

The amount which I care is enough to realize that people calling in need help and I really care about my customers. I care nothing for the company and its terrible management and lack of sound decision making. I can't wait to find a new job and put in my notice.

The worst part is that my boss told me he wanted to fire this guy but his boss and HR said no! So, now I have this secret that I can't share with anyone else sitting their actually working all day... I'm sure there's all sorts of things I could get away with but I just don't care.

One of our company mottos is- "do the right thing". Maybe I should call my cell phone today and take a little time for myself?

Life is good

The past year has flown by so quickly, and I feel lucky to have spent the majority of it being so happy and content. It's amazing to have someone by my side to share it all- I completely forgot what it's like to have a partner and I became so used to being alone. At first it was really difficult to find compromise and I was scared to really be myself.

Love is definitely the best gift you can be given- it's so hard to find. To have an amazing and crazy family and friends was already a blessing. Meeting Bobby has changed everything and while I used to be the skeptical one, now I'm the sappy person in love.

Can't wait to come back to Buffalo and show him all the summer fun stuff and Toronto!

Apparently a frigid cold is about to sweep the northeast, stay warm peeps!

A lil bit sick

It's crazy how bad my allergies are here in AZ, I know I've always been sensitive but I feel like they never became this bad in Blo.

Started sniffing last week and ignored it and fast forward to Monday... I actually had a fever and vomited.

I went to the CVS minute cloning this morning(which is seriously the fastest and most convenient place for minor illnesses) and I was in and out with a thorough consultation, diagnosis, and treatment. Afterwards, you can pick up your meds right away- today they already knew who I was most likely because of my lung hacking and that took less than 10 minutes.

Under an hour total- I love that place and the NP also asked about travel to West Africa and a few other investigative questions about Ebola before coming into contact with me. She was also super nice and helpful, as was the other NP I saw previously.

Libra Season Peaches! I'm getting old as $@*%!!!!!!

My niece Kyla turned 3 yesterday and she's so freakin cute. She showed me her pony, and the my little pony I sent Her. Then she called my mother and I pigs- which in my case is mostly true. Except for the past 3 days because this illness make me not hungry.

This is the rhythm of the niiiiiiiiiiiiight!!!! :)

I'm so angry about that idiot guy who lied about coming into contact with Ebola while in Liberia- apparently he may face criminal charges and rightly so. He endangered the lives of his family, himself, and possibly the public.

I hate this disease and I really hope it doesn't spread throughout the U.S.- I will find someplace else to go. :(

Just hold on I'm coming home

Fingers crossed my man and I will be in town for Halloween! I'm so excited to do a couple custome and I have a great idea I think... :)

Going to start approaching random people all over Phoenix and help Paul find someone who wants a tortoise.

Annd I got the iPhone 6 for free and sprint bought my contract. I know, I know the Samsung Galaxy is way better and all that blah blah blah. The stupid rumors about the phone bending do nt phase me because I would not keep my phone in my pocket. I'll say this- the screen is nice and I like having a working camera. Plus it was a crazy good deal and I don't have a bill next month because sprint paid me $360 for my broken 5s.

Off to work I go. :(

London Bridge in Lake Havasu

The guy who planned the city of Lake Havasu bought the actual falling apart London Bridge in the 1960's and had the exterior granite bricks numbered and brought to the U.S. for his new city...

Who knew?! His name is Robert McCulloch and he was a the owner of a chainsaw company. Cash can literally buy a piece of history and have it transported to another country and rebuilt. How much to have a pyramid placed in the city I am going to plan?

When life hands you lemons

Make vodka lemonade with basil....

I actually really don't drink much but that sounds really good right now.

So much has happened thus far in 2014 I feel like 8 months have passed and I haven't stopped to take it all in.

Being in a relationship has been so amazing, I know I haven't been the best friend or sister or anything lately but it's hard to not want to be around the person you love all the time.

I've also been really consumed by work and the constant struggle of getting promoted is draining. I'm at a standstill now and even though I've only been there 9 1/2 months I've never worked so hard to prove myself and it's discouraging to have so many interviews and have so many rejections. It will ultimately just motivate me even more to work harder at finding a better job. I don't know how (e:terry) worked an inbound call job for so long... It's a 10 hour day of allowing people to vent and be angry about situations you have nothing to do with. I can handle customer service but this is just relentless and depresses me. I love the amazing benefits but the work itself is pretty much the same day after day... Time for an alumni membership and some serious networking.

I just got a second job driving for ├╝ber which I think will be interesting and profitable for the short term. My goal is to do this for about 6 months and pay off my car and all my credit card debit and a chunk of my student loans. My coworker drives for them on his days off and makes some serious cash so why not?!

I seriously love having a new car...

Finally moving out of the parental home and into an apartment with my man... Super excited to have my own home with my guy. We are shooting for a month from now if not sooner.

I am in a kickball league and learning hoe to play on a team... A new challenge as I mostly despise team sports and cheering and all that. I actually won the game for us last week.

I miss my sweet little nieces so much, hopefully I'll stop being so broke soon and I can't visit this fall. On the note of being broke my bank was hacked this past week- hackers need to get right and steal from people who actually have money. That in addition to major hive breakout and being subjected to my mothers' two week long 60th party celebration in which I've been staying at random places because she gave my room to her guests has been probably the worst week yet of 2014.... She has every right to do that however it sucks to miss my luxurious bed and smart TV...

And then I remember that I have heath care and no imminent threat of Ebola and I think overall my life is pretty damn good. Later peeps, love ya!
