I’m boxing nothing. I don’t even really know what Boxing Day means except for a few tidbits from the American Girl books 20 years ago and also that when we lived in France we had some English friends and sometimes did fun things the day after Christmas?
That’s all I’ve got. I suck.
In other news, tomorrow is my last day of work! Yep. For rizzle. Hold me.
I’m half freaking out, half SO excited.
What happened is this: I’m at a point in my grad work where I have to do an internship to graduate, and it’s 600 hours, which translates to 20-ish hours per week from now until August. I asked my office if I could modify my working hours to stay on and do some at-home work, and they said NO.
So. Leaving. After tomorrow. With hardly a plan? I’m increasing the work I’m doing catering, increasing the yoga I’m teaching, and thanking the stars above that Jay has a great job with insurance. It’s a risk, but one that we feel needs to be taken now.
And that’s kind of it! A new chapter, and something I’ve been saying I wanted to do for a long time. I love cooking for people and teaching yoga, and my job prevented me from doing too much of it. I’m hoping those things will provide enough work to do just those two and my internship but, if not, I’ll find some super funzies part time job. Or not. Please go click refresh one million times on this blog so that these ugly ads start to work for me. Or share this site with someone who loves food and sarcasm? That would be nice.
Before we freak out about my lack of life plan, though, we’re going on our honeymoon! Next week! With friends! To Hawaii! Through some VERY generous help from friends and family we’re going away for 6 days with 2 other couples that we adore, and we are SO effing excited. You don’t even know. We’re going to Kauai – have you ever been? What should we do? Where should we eat? We’ll take a gazillion pictures and instruct YOU on what to do once we get back, but help us out in the meantime! We’d love to have some fun ideas for things to do once we get to the island.
So here we go, friends. New chapter, lots of unknowns, and a few sleepless nights so far. Hoping for the best stresses me out, but this Master’s needs to HAPPEN. So we’re making it happen.
