I love you to pieces, distraction, etc.

 

I resigned from my job today

And accepted a new one I start in two weeks!

I’ll still be in social media, but this time it’s for an agency and I get to travel (oh my god yes and FINALLY) and the office is so close by where I live that I don’t have to move or anything!

I’ll miss my team at my former job very, very much, and writing that resignation letter was incredibly hard, but I’m not gonna lie: this change is much needed, long overdue, and I am PUMPED for what lies ahead!

TIME TO POP BOTTLES AND CELEBRATE!!!!

Cool shit I enjoyed doing/seeing/L-I-V-I-N’ing when I went back to Saint Louis for a week:

Picture #1: Taking long walks around the neighborhood park. This is truly my special place. I kept getting amazed by how GREEN the grass was there. So fresh and vibrant! California, I love you but we need rain and we need it now.
Picture #2: Walking around the neighborhood meant snapping creeper photos of some of my favorite apartments.
Picture #3: Pappy’s Smokehouse AKA my BBQ lifeline.
Picture #4: I haven’t seen my brother in three years because he’s in the Navy and his deployment doesn’t allow him much time to take off and travel. He surprised me with a visit home when I was home and it was wonderful!
Picture #5: Another thing my brother surprised me with? A Swarovski crystal Pillsbury Doughboy necklace!!! I don’t need any other jewelry from here on out I am set for LIFE.
Picture #6: The wedding day of my wonderful gem of a girlfriend, Melissa. My hair got teased within an inch of its life for that ceremony but it was a hot day outside and it kept the humidity at bay nicely. The ceremony was beautiful. The fact that I wore my heels starting at 6 AM that morning until the end of the evening uh, maybe not so beautiful. We had Andre’s on the party bus and it reminded me of college and every girl in the bridal party got a garter with a flask on it to wear which is probably the most valuable bridal party gift you can give a single girl. I have a serious conversation accessory piece now.

Also, never in my whole life have I heard “Come On, Eileen” get played as much during this past week. I heard it EVERYWHERE. Everywhere I went, that song was playing! That song is right up there on my most hated songs list (right after “We Built This City” and “Hey There, Delilah” and that one KISS song where it starts off sounding really cool but gets shitty and super long really fast don’t remember the name but you’d know it if you heard it).

Overall, I had a great time. I didn’t get much sleep and my inboxes are bursting with emails and life is a little scattered at the moment and will get even more interesting starting tomorrow, but we’re gonna pull through this week one day at a time!

Trying to pinpoint where I was at my most emotional today

1) Seeing this little note my mom wrote with a smiley face on it. It’s a real thing to almost burst into tears seeing your mom’s handwriting, right?
2) The wedding rehearsal and knowing that in less than 24 hours one of my best friends in the whole world will be a married and very, very happy woman.
3) My little brother, who has been away in the Navy, who came home to surprise me on this vacation to Saint Louis. I haven’t seen him in three years. THREE YEARS!!
4) The present he bought me, a Swarovski crystal Pillsbury Doughboy pendant on a necklace. I’m still in shock.
5) Surprising my parents with tickets to see Ringo Starr in October.
6) Late night car drives with my dad to drive past the house I grew up in and the old neighborhood there.
7) Knowing that there’s something else huge I’m going to drop down on everyone when I get back to California next week. And when I say huge, I mean huge. Life changing. Nothing will ever be the same for me after Tuesday. (And it’s a GREAT thing too!)

This vacation makes me feel like a little caterpillar who has been prepping to change into a butterfly. I stayed in the cocoon for longer than I thought I would, but sometimes you gotta. You can’t bust out before you’re ready. Some changes have to be strategic and take time.

But all your strategy in the world cannot stop you from getting surprised when you least expect it which is one of the beautiful, and mysterious, things life has to offer.

fun fact my best friend in the entire world moved 2000 kilometres away to melbourne and she saw your show and gave you a bracelet i made (it said bae. i called it a baecelet) and even though i was very far away and unable to see u i feel like we are united through stories about your performance (amazing, or so i hear) and crappy baecelets. also u took pictures of my friend lilys face. (she has an a+ face :--)
