So I am absolutely guilty of some blog neglect over here!

I promise I have good reasons. Mostly - I got that job I was worried about!

It's hard - I'm working in a plant, moving things and sorting things and such, with all standing some days and all sitting some days (I found out that only sounds good until you try it...), so I get really sore/stiff/exhausted, and it's 9 hours. Swing shift, 3:30 - midnight. Also, my body isn't used to the set sleep schedule I'm trying to implement for it, which means I can't get to sleep at night and I can't get up in the morning.

Even though it's not glamorous or terribly enjoyable or whatever, and the side effects are less than desirable, I am so grateful to have gotten a job where a) I can work for only 6 weeks (4 left now) and b) earn some extra money ($11.50ish an hour, folks!) for my mission, and hopefully some for when I get back! 

It is such a blessing, and the people there are super neat - they're actually all members of my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which has been different, and kind of neat! We say a prayer before we begin working every day, talk about church things sometimes in casual conversation, etc. It's certainly a change from what I'm used to from previous jobs!

Well, there's an update for ya. I have a post coming about Death Cab for Cutie... I might be in love with Ben Gibbard, folks.


  1. YAY! That for sure doesn't sound like the most glamorous job ever, but it sounds just perfect for what you need right now. I can't believe you only have 4 weeks left!!

    1. I can't believe it either! 30 days! :) Yeah, it's definitely perfect - just what I needed :)
