Working on my Appearance

I'm one of those people who doesn't really use a whole lot of time on my appearance.  I try to use my time more constructively.  In the mornings, I sleep an extra 30 minutes and either my hair or make-up suffers.  I used to get up at 6:30 and look absolutely wonderful for high school every morning.  And, I definitely had more friends back then.

Now, I wake up at 7:00 and barely put on make-up by the time I get out the door (usually late).  I hate feeling like I won't meet anyone because I don't look good enough, or I'm not skinny enough.  I have no idea how I was so skinny back in high school.  But, I can't tell you how fat I thought I was.  I'd give anything to look like I did back then.  I've been working as hard as I possibly can to get back to it, but it seems like nothing was working.  I finally got off of the depo shot, and it's slowly coming off.  I think once I fit back in my clothes, I'll feel much better about working on myself.

Five on Friday

It's been awhile since I wrote a blog post.  And, I realize that I say this all the time.  But, I just never know what to talk about.  I convince myself that no one wants to hear about my boring life.  But, I'm determined to start writing about it anyways.

One.  I finished up my first class of grad school.  Made a B in it.  I'm happy with it, because he only gave 1/4 A's and there was only 13 of us.  So, I'm fine with it.

Two.  I also went to orientation today.  Funny to have to go to orientation after I had already been in school for a month.  It was like the longest day of my life.  And, I left 3 and a half hours early.  Skipped 2 receptions and a panel on the emerging energy sector.  Sorry, just couldn't handle it.

Three.  I am planning on going through firm recruitment next month at UNCC.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job.  But, there is absolutely NO room for advancement, and to get my CPA I have to work under a CPA for so long and no one at my current work is CPA certified.  So, with that said I am going to actively start searching for a job in public accounting.

Four.  On a happier note, I'm going to the scrapbook convention with my mom tomorrow.  And, I know it will be more than worth the $156 I dropped on that to spend the whole day with her, although I'm terrible at scrapbooking and she has to help me 110% the whole time.

Five.  Can we say how strange wonderful this weather is.  70 degrees all day long in the middle of August?  It's going to make for an absolutely beautiful football Friday night next week.
