Work has been crazy over the past month!  We launched the project I am a part of and have been working non-stop to see it succeed.  It's been really neat to be a part of something from the ground up, but it definitely has it's frustrations. 

I have learned so much about myself through this process.  I have been overwhelmed by the way this company has embraced this Art Major into the finance world!  They have been more than good to me, and for some reason, the Lord has allowed me to move up time and again.  I now find myself at the Director level, and enjoying it.  However, it has been truly exhausting lately.  I've realized this is, in part, because the position I'm in does not come naturally to me.  I am having to get up everyday and work HARD to succeed at my job.  It's leaving me a bit drained.  So, I have been thinking about how I can integrate a little more of what gives me life back into my world!  I have thought about opening up an Etsy shop and selling some of my photography, or doing some custom pieces, etc.  I DEFINITELY need to start doing some recreational painting... just to give myself a creative outlet.  AND... I am going to start dancing again!  My old studio holds an "Alumni" type class on Monday nights, and I am going to try to start going whenever I'm not on the late shift at work (11-8... eww ).  Throw some other suggestions at me if you have any!  I need to be creative, and an opportunity to make a little extra money would be nice too! 

On a side note... we are FINALLY (after 4 years of living in this house..) going to finish our office/3rd bedroom this weekend!  The only piece of furniture that doesn't really "go" with our idea for the room is the bed.  Sooo, I was wondering if anyone out there has a twin bed frame they aren't using and would like to sell for cheap!  OR... if you know of any good community yard sales going on, let me know!  It doesn't have to be nice... just paintable.  The one we have is my mother-in-laws and she doesn't want us to paint it, but I really feel like the light wood color of the bed would make the room seem disjointed.  So, I need another one (notice I didn't say new one!)  So, let me know if you have one, or know someone who does!  My youngest brother will be moving into that room Wednesday night, so we are hoping to have everything ready by then!  Thanks! 

Looking forward to this day being over, and on to the weekend!  Happy Friday everyone!
