New Beginnings

Gap blouse, Forever 21 earrings, thrifted skirt,
belt from Wish (closed), Banana Republic wedges
This has been an amazing week. Aside from getting a new MacBook, I also got a new job! I received an email last week from Texas Monthly asking if I was still interested in a fact-checking job. A few months ago, I'd emailed my old boss from my TM internship, but they didn't have anything available. I'd kind of forgotten about it, so was super excited to hear back from them. Now that I actually have the job, I'm pumped!

In order to make time for the 20-30 hours per week at Texas Monthly, I'm leaving Gap. I'll be sad to let go of the awesome discount, but I think it's for the best. I've been spending way too much money at Gap and Banana Republic instead of thrifting. I justified each Gap Inc. purchase by saying it would be silly to not take advantage of my discount. I also didn't have much time to thrift because I'd work as late as 9 p.m sometimes. I'll definitely have more time now because I'll only be working office hours during weekdays.

I'm keeping my job at Alfred Angelo for the weekends. I've been making pretty good money and I'm not ready to let go of that just yet.

Even though I wasn't actively looking for a new job, I'm looking forward to a change.

    I'm trying to finish my degree quickly (will finish in December) so I can move onto another job asap. I'm tired of working for less than I'm worth and I'm tired of homework.
