Hey there Y'all!

Lots going on!

I'm doing well. I haven't really had the time to update my own blog or comment on my favorites, because of my new job and the long hours. (LONG) I often worked night hours, then was simply too tired to do much else besides hit the hay. (what a change from looking, searching and praying for employment!)

I will say this though: My sales job wasn't right for me. I had difficulty with the pacing of the job and being able to hear customers on the phone. I had to learn how to pitch in order to make the numbers that I needed to make, and I discovered that I wasn't very good at it. After a careful consideration, I left the job amicably, and I found another job that I enjoy a whole lot more. It's temporary to perm and part time for now, but I'm relieved to be with people again and have a steady salary. (You know the previous job wasn't right for you when your hair begins to fall out in the shower and you sit in the parking lot before work giving yourself a pep talk)

I'm relieved to be working again. The best part? This job has lots of opprotunity for growth AND offices on the west coast and in Hawaii. I sense a five year plan y'all!


  1. Gosh, that job sounds horrible! I actually interviewed once for the same type of sales call/quota job and I felt sick just sitting in the room with them. But, hey, way to try new things!

    Congratulations on your new job. I hope it is much more pleasant.

    I am glad you stopped in to give us an update!

  2. Wow, good for you! It's super hard for me to find a job that I actually enjoy, so major props for you!

  3. Wonderful, Katie. I'm so glad you found a better fit.

  4. Hey wow that sounded so horrible, you made the right decision to leave and find something that suited you much better. I know it pays the bills or at least some of them, but if it's not right, it just isn't. Congrats on your new job!

    I found you at SITS :)

  5. As someone that lost her job in September right after moving into a new house (and a larger payment), I totally feel your pain on the job front. I'm glad you found something that you like that works for you!

  6. Hello Emily and Aimee! Thank you for visiting my blog! :)

  7. I am following the blog hop and followed you via GFC as masugr. Hope you can stop by and follow me as well!
