I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! Mine was quite nice. Santa was very generous this year, as he usually is. Knowing this could be Chico's last Christmas, I brought him and Shiver with me to hang out at my mom's for the day. Shockingly, Chico left my mom's beagle alone all day. Chico loves my mom's beagle and tries to show that love as frequently as possible, so that's kind of surprising.
What did Santa bring you? One of my favorite gifts this year was a solar angel for the garden. I took it out to the yard right after I got home. It immediately lit up which surprised me and it was so so so pretty! I tried sticking it in the ground and apparently pushed too hard and it broke, which made me sad. I now have to find another one just like it because I don't want to make my mom feel bad that I destroyed it ten seconds after I got it! Ugh!
What a difference a week makes! Last Monday I commented that I have no job prospects. Well, I have an interview today and another one tomorrow! They're both only temporary and don't pay very well at all, but it's money and it's experience. Plus they're both an opportunity to network more and hopefully find an even better job, so I'm just trying to remain positive about it. Both jobs are seasonal so if nothing else, it might be an opportunity to come back and work in the future. One job would be full time and the other part time. If those don't work out, I've been invited to attend two different workshops after the New Year. They're both free and another opportunity to network.
I noticed recently that I lost 5 followers in one day. I mentioned it to Lynne and told her I felt bad to have lost so many at once. She said she lost 4 followers the same exact day and we wondered if maybe it might be a Blogger thing? It seemed suspicious that we both lost several on the same day. Has anyone else noticed that they've lost several lately? Lynne also said that some of her newer followers don't show up in her followers list either.
Flipping through my Wreck This Journal recently, I came across a page that I thought would be fairly easy. I feel like it's an epic failure though!
