you want towel?  …  you want mint for pillow?

Okay, for the first time in a while, this actually feels like a Monday.  And well, as the start of the week, I feel like I need to do some organizing and thought gathering and just some general housekeeping.  (and please tell me you get the reference above.)

  • 2010: Year of the Cupcake – I’ve been slacking at starting this.  Which, yes, is totally lame because, hi.. CUPCAKES.  I have indeed consumed my first (second, third, and fourth) cupcakes for the year.  However, I’m not counting them for YotC.  I do however have a great bakery picked out for my first trip and am very excited about visiting them this week.
  • Some personal news – I don’t want to talk about work too much, but I had to share this… I got a promotion!  I know I just got this job, but I’ve already been promoted to Assistant Manager.  Feel free to congratulate me with cookies, cupcakes, drinks, or meals.
  • Triple-A – still going steadily…  We also have a facebook group now that you can join (this is just a way for us to sort of be able to see all the members at once.)  I’m going to continue working with Lovely about maybe a giveaway… and I’d like to work with 20sb on some projects too.
  • BOYS. – okay this is the update that you all (*cough*cmigs*cough*) want.  I am going to be working on The List post(s?) during my days off this week.  (When I’m not finishing freelance work.)  I know you’re all dying to know about the Macedonian (*cough*cmigs*cough*)… However, while, yes, I still talk to him some, there’s someone else.  I’ve been reconnecting with someone from my past (from college, not a previous hookup or relationship or anything).  Well, let’s just say it’s been the highlight of a lot of things (weeks, days.. yeah..) .. And I’m definitely looking forward to seeing where this could go — however, he’s not in Chicago… so…
  • Grad school – I know I talked about living your dreams… and wanting to apply to the MA in Zoology… but with the promotion, I’ve been going back and forth about whether I should apply for this year.  Classes would start in the summer.  I might see if there’s any conservation or environmental education courses I can take online this year…  I need to find a way to work full time and still get this degree.

Anyway… said guy from above is IMing me… and I have an email from him that’s burning a hole in my inbox (MUST READ NOOOOWWWW!)… so…. sorry… BOY.

  • lol why do we let boys take over our brains? 🙂

    • cause they’re cute… (well, this one definitely is…) 🙂

  • CMigs

    I can’t keep up with the boys . . . I need photos!

    • This new one is coming to visit me in 11 days. Maybe we’ll snap a couple photos of us together and I’ll post one (or five). 🙂 Gotta make sure he’s okay with it though.

  • i need to add that sticker for the TRIPLE A to my blog…hopefully today. I am notoriously bad at any kind of programming on my blog which is why it is so boringly simple.

    and please–i need a much more detailed boy post than that.

    • Hopefully The List post will be up sometime tomorrow. I’m going to start writing it tonight. 🙂

  • Yay for your promotion! And good luck sorting through things about grad school – I did my last 2 years of my undergrad going part time while working full time, and now I’m going to do my master’s the same way. It’s tough, but it can work!

    • Thanks!

      The hard thing is the toy store hours make it hard for me to do classes too. If they were only two days a week, I might be able to swing it, but I’d have absolutely no free days that way.

  • I would like to note that I do know the above reference, ha. RIP Chris Farley…

    Moving on: Congrats on the promotion. That is so very awesome. And with how much work you seem to be putting into that place, it’s well deserved, I’m sure.

    Also, what about going part time to school? I know it might be tough with your work schedule, but I’m looking at working full-time, part-time and doing school part-time in the fall. If I can, you can.

    • thanks! and congrats on getting the reference! 🙂

      I thought about school part time… but I’m still just trying to figure out how that’d be possible with the program’s schedule. Half of the courses are at Brookfield Zoo, so that’s a big time commitment. The online stuff isn’t an issue… it’s just needing the time to get to the zoo and being away from the store….
