The word is out. On Friday, I resigned from my job. I got another one. Woohoo!
So nope, I didn’t get engaged again and I’m not preggers. I am just moving on up in the corporate world. To celebrate, I bought a purse! As if anything else would be as appropriate. Two words: Tivoli GM. I don’t really discuss work here so I won’t start now. It’s just a good thing. I will definitely miss the people I worked with, not to mention I’ve been here since my internship. It’s funny. I went to high school for 4 years, college for another 4, and am finishing up my first real job after 6 years. It’s like I’m graduating to the next big thing all over again. This process has cemented that hard work pays off and nothing short of putting forth the best effort will yield great results.
I had a WONDERFUL time with my family all weekend. It happened to be Viet/Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. We didn’t really celebrate Vday – although he did get me a beautiful bouquet of pink tulips and purple irises for congrats on the new job. Aren’t they beautiful? Excuse the lousy phone pic.
AND he got me a funny card with shoes, a dog, and bling on the cover and some Godiva chocolates for me and the sis to enjoy. Perfection. How were your Vdays?
I wished that I had a week at home with the whole family. I really, really miss home. My mom moved into a new, bigger home and I am happy for her. She deserves a clean, big house for everything she’s done for us. The WEIRD thing is you expect to come ‘home’ to the house you left your parents in, not really some place new. My high school belongings are still there. Pictures of me and my little sister are all over the place. It may not have been OUR home, but it’s a home I miss going to – besides, no cooks are as great as our own mothers.
