Holy cow guys, it’s been since October of 2015 since the last time I really updated you on what’s going on in my world! Needless to say, I’ve been busy, and there’s been quite a few changes since then.
2016 overall was a fairly dull year for me. It wasn’t until around August/October that things started getting interesting.
Guys. I got a new job!!! As of October/November of 2016, I’ve been working at a wayyy more local veterinary hospital. The one I was working at before was a good 30 – 45 minutes away from where I live with Zach. It was fine when I lived with my parents – they were only 15 minutes away from it. But the long commute and several other factors started to wear on me. Towards the end of my time there I had (according to Zach & some close friends) started looking extremely tired & worn out, & I had even lost weight due to the stress of the position.
But now, now I am working as a full time receptionist at a clinic MUCH closer to home – so close I can walk to it in about 5 minutes. That’s right, I literally live right down the road from my workplace now! It’s been amazing. And, even though I now work Monday – Friday & some weekends, I only work in the afternoons from 1 – 7. And even on the days I get out later than normal…I only live 5 minutes away. XD
As for the rest of my life, well, if you follow me on Instagram you’d have a pretty good idea of what’s been going on. Which is to say – not much of anything exciting. My family, Zach & I went to Disney World’s Very Merry Christmas Party in December as we usually do, and now that it’s almost the end of January Zach & I are starting to look around for a new place to rent for the upcoming year as our lease is up come the end of May.
The prospect of moving – and even just finding a good place on time – has been stressing me out lately. I hate change, and I’m paranoid that we won’t find a place on time and will have to settle for something that we don’t really want. But I’m sure we’ll be fine.
I have finally decided on a name and logo for my candle business – though it’ll be a while before I’m truly ready to shout its’ name from the rooftops and share it here with you guys. My plan is to actually start selling my candles by the end of the year…guys I’m SOO excited!
Honestly…I think that about sums everything up. I got a new job last year – which is way less stressful and much closer to home -, I’ll be stressing out about finding a new home for the next 4 – 5 months, and my candles business is finally moving forward again.
After this post, my monthly updates will be a little bit more detailed, and be more in depth about what I’ve been up to in the past month. January wasn’t overly exciting, but I’m glad that I’ve been able to update you guys! 🙂
