I’m so grateful for every opportunity and every promotion I have been given at Lush Cosmetics. I just celebrated my 2 year anniversary with Lush Scottsdale and my heart is very heavy. My book isn’t closed but I hope to revisit this chapter later in life but right now it’s time to focus on me and my family.
I cant believe I’ll be there in 3 weeks. I’m not one to brag about how much I’ve accomplished but I’ve worked really hard. I never thought and I’m pretty sure no one else in my family thought I would work this hard for a job.
I used to feel really shitty about myself for not finishing school. ESPECIALLY now that all my friends have graduated college…but my job is way cooler than theirs.
I’ve pulled out a lot of old cd’s lately…I feel like most of them I stopped listening to around the time Mike decided he liked asian girls more and I haven’t really pulled them out since. However, I no longer feel like I associate these bands with those feelings I used to have.
It only took 6 years and being with the love of my life but I’m happy all that grudge is over with because these albums are making me really happy rather than really sad….I guess this is growing up?
Stephen Malkmus, thanks for being the hottest dad ever.
Boy and I celebrated our 6 year this week. It has flown by so fast…
I seriously remember so well the day he picked me up from my moms house and for me it was instant. I instantly loved his beat up truck, his long hair in his Castro hat and the fact that he took me straight over to his apartment to meet his friends-even though I got made fun of for a month and a half before they realized I wasn’t going anywhere. I loved that he showed me how to have fun without drinking or getting high and made me appreciate just simply being with another person. I remember sitting at Alli Gorospe’s house telling her I wasn’t sure if he liked me and that I don’t think I could be anything less than his girlfriend. I remember taking my moms car when she told me not to and getting ‘in trouble’ so I could have my first real date with him. Then the next day it was all up hill from there. I started my senior year of high school being totally in love and forgetting all about the other guy who broke my heart.
I remember graduating and then moving in with Brian and his roommates…getting snowed in and getting our cars stuck in ice. Watching Six Feet Under and Oz marathons all night. Brian supported me emotionally through my “big girl” job and then stuck with me when I moved to Arizona and then followed through on coming out here.
This man brings so much joy, humor, stability and is the love of my life.
I can’t wait to continue to do ‘nothing with you’ for the next 6 years..10 years..20 years and infinity.
i can’t post yet whether or not i got the promotion..but….
this was my reaction.
