Big News! HUGE news. GI-NORMOUSLY AMAZING NEWS!
I. got. a. new. job.
Let that soak in...I'll give you a minute...I GOT A NEW JOB!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!
So I said goodbye to those harassing jerks and hello to people who "are excited I'll be joining them" and think I'll be "a major asset" to their company. And by company I mean restaurants. I am the Office Manager for 6 LA restaurants. So basically what I am doing at my one job for the bars I now will be doing for some restaurants. Hello to minimal training!
And the best part? Part time, they are cool with my acting, they are paying me well, they'll allow me to bring my dog to work (when I rescue one), and I get weekends to MYSELF! I haven't had a weekend to do whatever I've wanted to do since 6th grade. SIXTH GRADE! Amazing right?! This leaves SO much more time for auditions, crafting, visiting the farmers markets in my area, writing my comedy movie about my horrible wedding experience last October, walking the pups a block over, etc.
I just feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. So much less stress and anxiety. YAY!
Now for some sad news. I just found out my mom's dad had a stroke and isn't doing well. Now I haven't had a relationship with her parents since I was about 7 or 8 but I have been wanting to reconnect with them recently to move past all this "bad blood" from the past. I'm 25 now and just felt it was time. I would like to know them before they leave this world. And today was very scary. I sort of want to fly back to MI from Cali to try to "fix" things as soon as possible just in case. I think I may actually call them tomorrow. P.S. I haven't called my grandparents since I was 6 or so. It just seems so crazy and sort of strange that the minute I want to reconnect it could be taken away. Hopefully it will all work out for the best.
Back to more positive news. I have been trying out a vegan diet these past few days. Partly to do a cleanse for my body of all the negative stuff I have been carrying around from this job now that I have my new one (YAY again). And partly to give vegan a fair go. I have always said I could NEVER live without dairy and I want to see if I can and how this way of living and eating makes me feel. If I like it I just might stick to it for good. So far, it's FANTASTIC! I am really surprised at how much I am really liking it and the food I'm eating. :) So hip-hip-hooray for healthy living! We'll see where I am at as this journey continues...
That's all for now. I am going to post again soon, hopefully tomorrow but with 3 jobs this week we'll see. I cannot wait for this week to be done and to be just working the 2 jobs I am excited to be at and slough off the negative job, energy it brings, stress, etc. It'll just feel amazing, I know it. :)
Hope you all had very lovely weekends!
All my x's and o's!
