Friday Happy Hour

Happy Friday Everyone~!

I hope everyone has amazing things planned for this memorial day weekend.  Me personally, my family has a summer place out in the country and that's where you can find me when the weather is warm.  I look forward to hanging by the pool, working on my tan out on the boat and relaxing a bit more before I start my new job on Tuesday.

I've also made a few more steps towards photography and I'll be taking my point and shoot this weekend with me to capture all the weekend fun!  Oh I'll also have my nook as well for reading by the pool :)

I'm pretty much all packed up and ready to go I just need to get in the shower, hit the gas station and drop something off at the post office.  My plan is to leave early and hopefully miss hitting most of the crazy holiday traffic. I also will be stopping at a Cupcake Store... I recently changed my phone wallpaper to a cupcake one that says Sweet..in term I know crave cupcakes like no tomorrow and luck would have it there is a shop on my journey.  I will take pictures of those as well!

I'd love to participate in or even host a blog swap, how many people would be interested?

PS I've also followed ALOT more blogs this week with my free time, I look forward to getting to know more people and hopefully having more people want to get to know me as well!

Have a wonderful, safe, fabulous weekend everyone! I'll be in touch soon!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

This week I'm loving:

  • Getting the job offer I've been waiting on I START MONDAY *happy dance*
  • Friends and Family: I've been extremely blessed and I know I say this alot but I can't get threw anything without my friends and family.
  • Ann Taylor Loft: I love the casual look and they have a pair of sandels I've been eyeing and they've been out of stock for ATLEAST a week.
  • Enjoying my last week before I start my new adventure aka job.  I've been sleeping in, staying up late and just relaxing and rejuvenating.
  • My nook color: I've renewed my love for reading.
[ps my computer and blogger won't play nice and therefore I cannot post pictures]


To new beginings

The 13th of May was my last day of work, I finished out the day packed my things and wanted to leave my resignation letter.  However, our internet was down and I was unable to access the file. So sadly I had to wait until Saturday to give my resignation.  I felt a million things when one makes such an important life decision: scared, nervous, worried etc etc.  Thankfully, my boss took it as well as she could and there was little drama involved.

I've used the last week in a half to interview, relax, clean and think about the future.  Thankfully, I believe all my interviews went well and I should know something soon.

I've learned a few important things from my times at my old company:
1. If you take on more stress, you should be paid more.
2. If your company can barely make payroll, RUN!
3. Go with your gut, if something doesn't feel right it probably isn't.
4. Yes a relaxed company is cool but without some structure it will surely fail.

Im excited to move onto the next chapter of my life!

My family and friends have been amazingly supportive and helpful during this process.  I couldn't be happier with the way they've been.  I'm supremely thankful to be blessed in both areas.

I hope to me more active in the future and improve my blog with link ups, give aways and more!


Completely honest, open and real

Hello blog friends, sorry I've been a little inactive this week but I've had alot going on.

I'm currently debating leaving my job of 1.5 years, the company has changed, I stepped down from my position and am currently training a new person who knows even less about what I do then I did when I started.  Basically, we needed someone in accounting and instead we hire someone who doesn't know much about accounting other then the very basics and I'm supposed to train her and have her take over the position I couldn't handle. WTF! I stepped down because I didn't know enough and you bring someone else in who knows even less again, WTF! I couldn't be more pissed. I work for a small company it used to be Me, The President of the Company and one other girl.  Now we've added on 2 other people and the presidents business partner is now involved.  I had such a personal care and dedication to seeing the company succeed and now it's hard to step back and see the higher ups make the wrong decisions and know that my opinion no longer matters.  Not only that but its the bosses daughter they brought in, she's great and all but she's supposed to help accounting therefore I shouldn't have to train her. I must admit I stepped down WILLINGLY, I was tired of having no life, working crazy 50-60 work weeks and always being stressed.  This situation doesn't make me feel any better, not only did I feel like I failed because I couldn't grasp the accounting but now a bigger failure.  Not to mention my boss is unstable at best, in a week I'm luck if shes in 3 days out of 5, shes typically in and bad mood and treats me like CRAP.  Anything that goes wrong in blow way out of proportion ALWAYS. She's unappreciative of what I or anyone else does and will threaten to fire any employee at the drop of the hat.  I'm tired of being unappreciated, over worked, underpaid and treated like crap.

I can't tell you how bad I want to say screw you and walk out! However, apart of being grown is having bills and I don't have enough in savings to just up and quit and just let a job find me when it does. For the first time I'm looking at it as I don't have someone to fall back on I don't have my mom to help me out of a bind. I have me, if I leave I'll support myself on my very little saving and my credit cards and that's not really what I want to.  I'm putting my big girl panties on despite however hard it may be.

Everyone wish me luck on the hunt and send me your good vides and patience because I'm about to loose it.

Also, does everyone what to see more personal journal type posts or not?

*edit, I gave my resignation today via email to my boss*

wish me luck!
