Friday Fun! (Happy Birthday To Me! Ok, Ok, and America)

Hello my lovely readers!

This was a very busy week for me because: a) I turned 26 b) 4th of July (aka America Fuck Yeah) c) I had a 4 day weekend d) I road tripped with my bestie to New Hampshire/Vermont to visit the fam.

Whew! I’m exhausted just typing that!

I’m like super old now at the ripe age of 26. (I tease. I had my quarter life crisis last year. 😉 ) My daddy made me birthday pie (strawberry-rhubarb, my favorite), because I prefer pie to cake. PIE TOTALLY WINS SHUSH.  I also got (from family and friends): cooking gear, a window-mount birdfeeder to provide cat tv, cat toys, photoshop, and an itunes gift card. You guys are the bestest! I feel so loved. 😀

I, unfortunately, caught some sort of stomach bug so I spent most of my holiday weekend sick. Epic. Sad. Face. I have an intense love for Independence Day, so that was a bummer.  I did discover, however, that I can see most of the Boston fireworks from my couch, which is awesome.  Also, I had already set off fireworks in NH so admittedly I’d already had some crash bang.

Luckily I was better in time for work, so I didn’t miss any of that.  I did miss the gym whilst I was sick though. I’ll be returning tonight.

Happy belated 4th! Happy weekends!

Friday Fun! (Long Weekend, Job Hunt)

Hello my lovely readers! As ya’ll know, last weekend was a 3 day weekend for moi.  I am pleased to report that I managed to hit up some Memorial Day weekend sales with my gal pals.  The rest of the weekend was mostly devoted to being lazy, as it should be.  I also had my first veggie burgers of the season.  I know you can eat them year-round, but for some reason I prefer them when it’s warm out.

Since I’m acquiring my MLIS in January 2011, at my yearly review a couple of weeks ago I talked to my boss about my position.  It was newly created when I was hired, so whether they wanted to keep it paraprofessional or make it professional was unclear.  Well folks, they want to keep it paraprofessional.  I’m welcome to stay, but also have their blessings to start looking for a professional position, which I’ve been doing.  So I’m looking for my first professional job.  You guys know how job hunting is; I don’t need to go into that.  It has, however, been taking up a bit of time.  If any of you guys happen to hear of anything or can put a good word in for me, I’d appreciate it. 🙂

This weekend I’m looking forward to trying out a longer bike ride again to see if I’m getting any better.  This undoubtedly will be combined with picnicking and reading.  Happy weekends!
