Sunshine-y Daaaaay

So...I got the job!
I was totally surprised (not to mention delighted) by this new development...
I have this thing where I always worry about money and I always have to be working. I have never not had a job since I was like sixteen....

I have been worried constantly about my job situation ever since I moved to New York...I am actually pretty lucky financially; I live with roommates so my rent is pretty low. I have paid off a couple of debts except for the large college debt (ugh) and I have a yucky credit card thing going on...but I still feel restless despite the fact that things could be worse.

I would dearly love to find my dream job, which is why I feel restless. But for now, I am trying really hard to be in the moment, and love where I am and what I do. And with this new job, a place where I have always wanted to work, I am going to do this new thing and enjoy all that it brings.

I wore this out to get groceries and a gaggle of teenaged girls passed me. They all burst into laughter and I wondered, all paranoid, if it was directed at vain.
Perhaps it is the giant wooden balls hanging about my neck?
Perhaps the tiny tiny purse at my side? Its for cellphones, all the rage in Thailand!
...I find it refreshing to carry a tiny purse, when usually every day I carry around a honkin' tote bag or bulging purse...the hazard of living in a city where you don't own a car and have to carry around your whole day with you inside a giant bag.
Wish me luck for starting a new job this week!

What else should I be? All Anthropologies

I don't know what it is, but my brain is made of mush lately, and i have been losing things. Things i really love. And i feel as though i hardly ever lose things, so its annoying.
Take, for instance, the wonderfully amazing headband from Anthropologie.
It was not overly fancy, but special enough to make me feel like a princess, despite my bad hair, which the headband covered up.

So i decide to go back to Anthro to check out their headbands. There was only really one that I liked much so i decided to get it, remembering how amazing the last headband was. They had a sign at the checkout about there being open interviews.
So i totally went to the interview dressed like this, even though i am already employed...even though if i did get hired at Anthropologie, i would be unable to pay my bills because i would use the paychecks to buy everything in the store.
They HAVE to be putting CRACK in the ventilation system or something, seriously...that store is like an art installation, its genius.

I wanted to dress as cute as possible, but i dunno, maybe i looked like i was trying to work at the gap or Banana Republic with those khakis on....

Are you as in love with these shoes as I am? Theyr'e not from Anthropologie, but they look like they could be.

How did the interview actually go? It was all right. I was struck by nerves suddenly as the hiring person sat three of us down across from her and asked us questions. I am the least verbally articulate person when I am nervous...

Do purple and bright yellow go together? No? Well they should.
