dun dun dun

so i have news. big news.

i am moving.

where to?

chicago!

actually, north chicago. the evanston/glenview/northbrook area. but its only a thirty-forty minute train ride to downtown. and a thirty-forty minute drive to adam’s work. he got a lateral supervisor job in mettawa, and since it’s a new warehouse he’ll be able to move up in management more quickly. very exciting. as for me… i really have nothing here, anymore. i have nothing holding me back. so why not move? chicago has a ton of opportunities, i have a lot of contacts and if we live in evanston we are right next to northwestern university [aka i could go back to school!]. the kicker? we move october 1st. one month. one month to find a job or two for me & an adequate apartment for us. plus, finish my internship & the papers – AND to downsize and pack all my crap. hah. overwhelming.

so… yeah. yippeeeeee for a new chapter! :]

square one.

well as some of you know, i did not get the job in texas. actually, i didn’t even get a chance to get the job. the lady i interviewed with told me to call in two days… and then never called or answered my calls. how rude.

two months ago i was told by the company i intern for that they would not consider keeping or hiring another employee because they could not afford it. therefore, i began my search for something permanent elsewhere. yesterday i go into work and find a new girl sitting at my desk. her name? shannon. her purpose? marketing. aka pretty much the same things i have been doing & getting praise for in the past two months. is she an intern? no. its her part time job. how rude.

so im applying and applying and applying and applying for anything and everything – everywhere. its extremely frustrating being back at square one.
