27.2.13

on applications and jute rugs


My internet time lately is restricted to a. applying for jobs and b. looking for housing. The former always leads to me leaving myself excessive notes that read "call so-and-so on 11/29" or "send follow up email in the morning" and the latter always leads to finding the perfect apartment/townhome/house and then dreaming of what I'm going to put in it. You see, we are now 95% sure we'll be moving to the valley of the sun come April. Which is kind of ironic, I think. We've always said "we'll go anywhere!" so for things to be working out so perfectly for us to end back up in AZ just seems ironic. Ironic and also so exciting. Family! Friends! THE SUN! We love it there and no matter where we actually end up, we'll always love the desert, so if that's were we go, we'll take it. Anyways. All of our furniture was purchased used and then we've had it for nearly 6 years... that's just a nice way of saying I hate it all and we don't want to move it. I feel like the day I buy a camel leather couch will be the day I say "I've made it." Lofty goals, over here. So dreaming of buying furniture excites me almost as much as finding my future career. Which leads me too this: I cannot wait to be hired. I have, what feels like a million resumes out there and there are a handful that just make me giddy to think about. So many good options. I'm hoping that the dust settles over applications and interviews and emails and offers over the next few weeks and we can start making plans. Real life, grown up plans. Boo-yah.

p.s. all the beautiful furniture you see is from west elm (where else?)

Good luck with the job search. Our fingers are quadruple crossed that you get just the one you want. :)
Also, when you get here, I need you to decorate my house for me.

So exciting and that's incredible that you are heading back to your homeland! I feel ya with the camel leather couch and I've been searching everywhere for that color and for one reasonably priced. By what I can only call a miracle, I found one for less than half off just sitting all lonesome in the furniture clearance section of JCPenney, it was fate.

Good luck searching for and snagging a job that you love! It can be hard. I had your same routine a few months ago, before I got the position I have now. Lots and lots and lots of interviews and applications and cover letters. I think I had four interviews in a week and a half, and that was exhausting! My sympathies for how tiring & frustrating it can be, but I hope you find something that really perks your interest and gets you excited! Best of luck. And I have to tell you, I love the pattern on that rug. Love it. Decorate my apartment, too? :)

I'm in the same boat -- housing and jobs. We just barely found an apartment (and a cutecutecute one, yay!), but I'm still searching for jobs. Good luck in your search!
