Getting Settled

Posted in Journal tagged , , , at 3:45 pm by Jenn

Now that I’ve realized that Chile isn’t going to happen for me, I’ve gone in to “getting settled” mode.  I’m finally organizing my things like I’m going to be here for a while because…well I am.  I went out and purchased that horrible put together furniture that I vowed I would never buy again.  Just 2 pieces.  That seems like enough at the time.  Til I started organizing that is and realized that I should have super sized it.  LOL.  Just when did I manage to accumulate all of this stuff?  Really it isn’t that bad if I were in my own space and had space to put everything.  It just a little cramped here in the sewing room/guest room at Mom and Dad’s, but I’ll manage.  I will however be purchasing a new bed with my very first fulltime job pay check because this futon is just simply not going to work for another 6 months.  I’m surprised my back isn’t protesting daily!  Hang in there back, you have proper support real soon.

The job hunting has gone pretty well.  I have another interview on Monday and hopefully another offer and then will have a decision to make.  I was offered a job last week, but told them I needed to wait til this next interview was over before making a decision.  It’s going to be a hard one to make if I’m offered this second position…stay tuned.

I’m heading to NC this week to take care of some business related to my vehicle.  I’m going to visit with some friends and enjoy the beach combing and front porch cocktail!  Hopefully we’ll have some tuna on the grill!

Next weekend is the Kidney Awareness Walk for DaVita.  I still plan to walk but my buddy had to cancel so I’m hoofing it alone.  That stinks, but the important thing is that I’m hoofing it.  Hopefully this week I’ll get a few more donations and reach my goal.  Also need to get some snazzy tunes uploaded to my phone to help pass those miles.  It’s a wonderful cause so if you haven’t already, please consider donating.  Follow this link to my donation page.  I know it’s rough out there right now and the pockets aren’t quite as deep as they might usually be, but even a small donation makes a big difference.  You probably know someone who is affected by kidney disease.  The major causes of kidney disease are diabetes and hight blood pressure.  Approximately 26 million Americans currently have CKD, and 90% of them don’t even know it.  This walk is to help promote awareness and education about the disease.

    I’m a little sad you’re not going to make it to Chile, but I’m glad you finally have the decision made. I can imagine it’s been hard basically just waiting, and now you can start really getting into your own life in the US. Good luck with the job hunt!

    I’m a little sad too Emily. I think Chile would have been an amazing experience.

    What happened with Chile?? I apologize, I have been really bad about keeping up on my light reading… and I am missing out on what my blogging friends are doing!!

    Scott is in Chile and I’m hanging out here in the US. He says it’s too expensive there and that I won’t be able to find a job in my field so it’s better for my career to stay here and look for something. We think he’s coming back to this area in the spring so it just makes sense.
