Lol that is freaking adorable, Mara. Kudos on the kiddos 6-monther!
So my good thing of the day is more a good thing of the month because...I've had a wild one.
First off...I've achieved my weight loss goals and have even put on some muscle. This was a big thing for me over the last year and I've since gone down 7 inches in my waist, it's been a wild ride.
Secondly I got promoted! So our department has a lead position and we hired out for that when it came available. I was up for the job but didn't get it due to...well, I'm professionally unprofessional. I'm great at my job, and it's a wonderful place to work, but I'm a bit goofy and hadn't really reigned that in. My coworkers and really everyone I work with love it but my boss's boss wasn't a fan so they hired out. He was abysmal and we've been trying to fire him since the week after his start date. A couple weeks ago he was fired and they immediately offered me the position. It came with a small pay bump and...well, a lot of responsibility, but I like that kind of thing so I was down for it. So now I'm lead in my department at work and I'm overjoyed.
Thirdly my parents have sought counseling. They've had a rough relationship the last few years, mostly because of my brother (he's a monster) and they cut ties for awhile, instead choosing to seek professional help. They're like...they're snuggling on the couch and taking weekends out of town and such. It really makes me happy.
Fourthly (is that a word?) I had a post on our website get over 50 hits. We're small and don't get a lot of attention so that's big for us. The article was about the new Apes movie and it just made me incredibly happy that it got so much attention, I was giddy.
Fifthly (I'm making words up at this point) one of our theatres has been screening the LotR trilogy and I've been going. It's been a blast. This ties into another one that I'm coupling with this...my friend got a job in our department! So not only do I have incredible coworkers, I now also have an awesome dude to pal around with a bit at work.
Lastly...and the most scary...I have a Skype interview with a representative from the University College of London tomorrow evening, where I'm hoping to do my masters work. I'm nervous and excited and jittery so...fingers crossed!
I hope everyone else has been having as good of a summer as I have. This has been wild and to top it all off I get a Star Wars Episode at the end of the year. Life is grand.
Perfection is a lifelong pursuit requiring sacrifice. The only way to get it quicker is to sacrifice the most.
