Wow! Hi there.
I'm sorry I haven't written in awhile. Several things have caused this to happen:
1) No internet. This made blogging (including reading my favorite blogs) kind of tough. :( (As one of my friends/roommates said: "Katie, I bet this is KILLING you right now." Indeed. But, I survived. After all, there are worse things in life then no internet. (and no cable) We recently (as in, a couple of days ago) got internet and DirectTV, so I'm back in business. (now if only I can find my camera).
2) Settling in. It's taken a little bit to organize everything in my new room just so. My dad put together all of my furniture from Ikea, and I am now nestled in very nicely.
3) (and this was the MAJOR time eater) Job hunting, job hunting, job hunting. It's taken up a huge chunk of time, and yet, everyday was becoming the same. I filled out so many forms that I memorized every important number and address in my working life. I went to job fairs. I searched CareerBuilder, Job.com, Indeed.com Monster, even Craigslist. (which I really don't recommend) I hit the pavement, dropping off my resume at department stores in the mall. I began researching volunteer opportunities just to fill my time when starting Wednesday, my phone began ringing off the hook for interviews. I landed a job on Friday. I start tomorrow. I'm crossing my fingers that this works out, but even if it doesn't, I feel stronger and more confident. I know now that all I can do is try my best.
4) I think I was becoming burned out with blogging. I hate saying that, because I love it so much, but I needed a bit of a break.
I hope you all are well. I'll post more details on my new place (pics of new digs included!) in my next blog. :)
