I need to get this shit together. And by “this shit”, I mean my life.
So obviously I haven't updated my blog in awhile. I know. I got distracted with…
I know it’s a been awhile since I posted something that wasn’t just a funny picture. Sorry about that. I needed to take some time to take care of myself and my mental health in the wake of some serious job stress.
Right now that job stress is somewhat less, and perhaps it will continue to stay at this more manageable level. I hope so. Stress or no stress, I’ve been absolutely working my ass off. I’m currently, single-handedly managing marketing campaigns for 3 massive events. It’s exciting and terrifying all at the same time. When I’m done (in May), I will be so damn hire-able that I’m sure every marketing company this side of the Rockies will be clamoring to have me. (Lol). Or, at the very least, I will have gained a metric fuck-ton of experience and marketable skills–hopefully enough to land me a job in Chicago in the near-ish future.
In the meantime, I’ve found a bit of peace and quiet at home. Enough to decorate for the holidays a bit, on a sparse budget. The “Peace & Joy” banner was made by hand in my off hours, while sipping beers and watching Doctor Who with my newly-converted Whovian boyfriend.
Javi even took the time to put Christmas lights up in our very tall windows, so our apartment now has a homey glow that can be seen from the street.
It’s hard to believe 2013 is coming to a close. It’s been an incredibly eventful year for me, with some very big ups and downs. I’m eagerly awaiting some time off around Christmas to eat delicious food, unwrap the occasional present, and most of all: spend quality time with friends and family.
What are your Christmas plans?
