If you follow my twitter you should know by now that this past weekend has been full of eventful updates!
First of all, I got a new job! I have been searching for months (ahem, 8 to be exact) and really got discouraged for a while after a couple of letdowns, but I kept applying. In February I was told that I was selected for a campus recruiting position with one of the "big" accounting firms, but was soon told that they were going on a "hiring freeze"and that they would no longer need the position. I was bummed and went on a job rampage. Basically, I was applying to anything and everything and soon realized that I needed to chill out and wait for the perfect job to come along. Finally, I saw the perfect job opportunity for a position that I have past experience with and really enjoy doing. I went into this interview prepared, poised, and on a mission. I though positively about acquiring the job and voila, it happened! My first "big girl" job will start July 29th. I don't want to say a lot about it, but it will be exciting and require a lot of travel!
In true PIPM fashion, I went shopping for career clothes as soon as I accepted the job offer. I had great luck at Jcrew and even got some cute things at Banana Republic as well.
I am going to Atlanta next Sunday with my friend Sara to do some hardcore shopping, so look out!
I have an appointment to cut my hair this Tuesday. I was so fed up with my tangled rats nest this weekend that I cut three inches off myself! I felt the urge, so I did it! At least now I can't back out of my hair appointment, right?
This is how I'm getting my haircut:
Lastly, my Mom and cousin came down this weekend to bring me a beautiful antique china cabinet that Mom acquired at a "Peddler's Mall" for a super-cheap price. It is so pretty and I am so glad that all of my fine china can finally be displayed!
