Back to Work & School + Photo Dump

Hi humans!

I imagine this post will be quite short because I have schoolwork to do, but I just wanted to come give a little update!

Today was the first day of school for my school, but since I’m doing all of my classes (besides a yoga class) via independent study, I didn’t even step foot on campus. I had my first day of work at my big girl job.

I woke up at 6:30 in order to be out the door at 7:25 and arrive on time at 7:45. As you know, I have been extremely sick for the past 5-6 days. I spent yesterday in bed DYING (slight exaggeration) and ended up at Urgent Care. I was so worried last night that I would wake up not feeling any better, but miraculously this morning I woke up feeling 99.9% like myself again. Thank goodness for that.

Anyway, back to the job. Today went by SO fast and I’m thinking that’s a good sign. 🙂 I have my own office, own fridge, microwave, and more. (When I got home from work today I gathered some decorations, coffee mugs, pictures, etc. to decorate my office tomorrow. Def will post pictures when I do that.)

My boss is super nice and worked with me as today I was put straight to work. I spent the day using Adobe Illustratr to create several marketing pamphlets for the company, and then revising those hundreds of time until they were perfect. I literally did that for the ENTIRE day, and it felt like I was at work for 2 hours. I was there for 9 and a half!

I have a lot of job functions, but I will get to travel whenever the company attends trade shows and I will be the spokesmodel. Behind the scenes, I do all of the marketing work, assist with sales, social media, and more. It’s pretty cool.

I’m quite excited for this opportunity and I think having a sit-down job will be good for my recovery. All I do is sit and eat and work, work, work!

On Tuesdays and Thursdays I will use my lunch hour (plus a little travel time) to go to my on-campus yoga class. My boss is cool with me coming early or staying late to make up for the extra time, so that’s good.

All in all, my first day was great and I’m actually looking forward to going back tomorrow. I’m still overwhelmed with working 50 hours a week and having to find time for all of my independent study work (there is A LOT) but I know I’ll be able to find a balance here pretty soon. It’s probably going to mean spending my weekend doing school and not having much free time, but that’s okay. After this semester it’ll be a whole lot easier!

This weekend I have to pack up my house and move in to Jarrett’s house. He lives with his sister and another roommate. I’m not overly stoked about moving *AGAIN* but hopefully this will be the last time for a while, and it will be nice to actually be living with Jarrett since our schedules are now rarely allowing us to see each other. If anything, I’ll be able to kiss him goodbye in the morning before I head to work, and when he gets home at 1 a.m. from work he can kiss me goodnight. That’s a lot better than not seeing each other if you ask me.

Every night I get my clothes ready and lunch packed so that all I have to do is wake up, get ready and get out the door!

So, yes, I’m stressed, but after today I’m feeling a lot better about my situation. Sure, I won’t have as much time to blog or do some of the things I enjoy doing every day, but change is good and I think I needed this change. I think this job is going to be great for me. And my boob job fund.

And now, let me dump some photos that I have on my phone from the past few days!


First time trying this bar and although I don’t like Quest cookies & cream I LOVED this!


From last Thursday when Jarrett and I met my dad at Jackson Meadow Reservoir to go quading and fishing! This was the day I got sick, so we had to cut the trip short.


Doofus + blowhole.


Aw we like each other.


First day of werk!


Got ready in like 15 minutes and still looked presentable. Sweg.

Talk to me:

Have you started school yet?

Do you work full time and go to school full time, too? If yes —> WHY? HOW DO YOU STAY SANE?!

If yes to above, do you find time to work out or just say “eff it” ?

  1. Oh the memories your last question about working and going to school brought up. Honestly, I don’t remember sleeping…..Ever back then except with my boyfriend and I really don’t remember us sleeping.
    I worked full time as a Manager at the pizza parlour. My boyfriend and his 3 brothers owned 2 of them and I worked at both. Plus I went to school full time as well. Full time meaning I had a full course load. I was fortunate that I didn’t have to attend most of the classes. Just do the work and be there for tests. And LABS.
    I am glad you are feeling better.
    I am really glad you like your new job. I look forward to all the photos. Hugs Sarah


  2. Im so excited for you Annie- you inspire me everyday to work hard and not be overwhelmed with my own schedule! I have to take heavy science/math classes, work, tutor, go to karate, and also make time to blog/connect with others… I do not know how you do it but it seems like you manage it so well! I start school on Monday and I am super excited yet stressed out about it :).


    1. Thank you so much!! Yep, sounds like a busy but rewarding life you got there. I definitely don’t manage it well I’m half going crazy in my head hahaha. I hope school goes well! Don’t stress, you’ll have plenty of time for that later in life…unfortunately. Haha

  3. Good luck with school and work… I’m sure you can handle it but it’s okay if you can’t!!! Be easy on yourself, especially as you’re recovering. Honestly, I’ve had a full-time office job before, and it’s kind of hard to eat enough to gain weight when you’re so busy working all day. So bring LOTS of calorie-dense snacks!!! As much as you can fit in your bag! And I definitely don’t recommend working out. You need all the rest you can get, and your body is going through plenty of stress as it is!!
