i forgot how exhausting it is working full-time.
4 months of unemployment sure did spoil me.
now I'm trying to cram everything in...
working 8 hours a day, managing a household,
& did I mention trying to edit all of the photo sessions I have been taking.
yea, it's not exactly a life of leisure.
but hey, I'm not complaining.


here is what my new, awesome life as a career-woman is like so far:


01. i thought I was drinking more coffee when I was at home all day long.
wrong.
i am drinking entirely too much coffee these days.
oh well.


02. my office is very casual dress which is so awesome.
jeans and a t-shirt most days for this girl.
however, I have been switching it up with some cute tops and heels as of late...
i can however forsee this excitement wearing off soon.
but I'm already looking forward to fall and being able to
actually wear clothes that I like to work!
what a novel idea...
blazers and boots and ruffly scarves, oh my!


03. i have an office, which is definitely a step up from my cubicle at my last job.
but not only is it a big, spacious, and private office-
it is
soooooo cute!
makes it nice to come in every morning.


04. there is a Wii room in our office.
yep, that's right.
an entire room dedicated to the Wii and our collection of games.
and some pretty kick ass bean bag chairs too.


05. i love working with design again.
most days I really can't believe that what I do all day long is considered work?!


06. Guinness can come with me to work!


07. afternoon tea runs {everyday}.
enough said.


08. the air hockey table in the breakroom.
good times.


09. the responsibility.
yep, you read that right.
i won't lie- responsibility can be stressful.
but it's so worth it to actually know that what you are doing matters.
i've struggled with that in the past
& i know that i won't here.
that is huge for me.


10. my income.
haha. sorry, that's a pretty obvious one.
but one that i will never overlook again after loosing my previous job.


11. i am located in extremely convenient proximity to:
a} my favorite used book store.
b} realllly good pizza.
c} my bank, which comes in handy.
d} aaron & kathy's house- it's literally a block away.
e} a skating rink- i am really excited about this one.


sounds pretty awesome, right?
yep it really is.
hey- work hard, play hard, right?


i can't remember the last time that i have actually
been excited to wake up in the morning,
get ready and go to work.
& not just for the fun stuff either
{although that's pretty darn great}.
i actually like what i'm doing!


it is a wonderful thing.


thank you everyone for supporting me during my down time.
it was much-needed & appreciated more than you could know.
here's to hoping this feeling lasts.
