Thursday Thirteen: How Amy got her groove back!

Thirteen Things that I have learned in the past year!

1. I can't believe it's been almost a year since my engagement broke off.

2. I am definitely a stronger person for having gone through that.

3. I have learned that I can be on my own, and be okay and content with this. I am okay with silence and can sleep without worrying about being alone.

4. I have learned that I have some amazing friends who have stuck with me through the good and the bad!

5. I have learned that I can make it on my own--but I still need my mommy sometimes!

6. I have learned that I can manage all the bills, do the cooking and the cleaning, and even clean the toilet!

7. I have learned that a man does not define me and that I am my own individual person. It's also okay if I do not agree with everyone--I should have my own opinion.

8. I have learned that I deserve to be treated with respect and the love that I deserve. I also deserve to have someone who cares about me and thinks about me all day long :)

9. I have learned that I am strong enough to make major life decisions without someone else and that I am proud of who I have become.

10. I have learned that I am a pretty great person who any man would be lucky to have.

11. I have learned not to waste my time on people who don't treat me with respect.

12. I have learned that I can cry when I spill milk, have days that I don't want to get out of bed, and watch movies all day if I want.

13. I have learned that after 1 year, I will have gotten my masters, quit my job and moved, and become a pretty independent person.

This year has gone by fast (even though I didn't believe so at first!) I appreciate you guys sticking with me through the good and the bad. I hope that some day I can blog about finding a guy who fits descriptions above and understands me and cares about me for me. Stay tuned for that day :) Also, thanks to Goofy girl for the personalized banner!

Black Friday

Well, today is a day of rest! Yesterday was quite the day. I LOVE Black Friday. I started the tradition a few years ago with my mom and still do it. The outlet mall that is 30 min. away opened at midnight on Friday. So, yes, I was one of the crazies that was there. I went to Carter's to get some baby clothes (at 70% off!) and then went to Harry and David's and got an extra 25% off my entire purchase. Not too bad!

Then it was back home to sleep for a couple hours. Then up at 3am to get ready to attempt Kohl's. I think I may have single handedly brought the US out of debt. I got everything I wanted (and then some) and because I stood in line for over an hour with my dad, I found even more (he stood in line and I continued to shop!) I am now done with Christmas shopping though. That is what I love about Black Friday. I shop for only one day and poof I'm done.

Does anyone else venture out on Black Friday? If so, what were you looking for?

Job Interview! **UPDATED**

I have a job interview in less than an hour. WISH ME LUCK!!!

I'll update and let you all know how it goes (I'm crossing my fingers that I can report that it went well!)

The interview went well. There were 3 pages of questions from 3 women and then a writing sample after the interview. The whole thing lasted approximately 90 minutes. They said I should hear from them the week after Thanksgiving (they have a few more applicants to interview).

I also got a call and email today to set up another interview for another position that I applied for. So YAY :) I am just happy to be having interviews. Every interview helps get me closer to a job!!! Keep those fingers crossed!!!!

Falling into Place

Well, things seem to (cross your fingers!) be falling into place. I did give my notice at work and my last day is ONE MONTH from today!!!!! As you can tell, I am extremely excited about that! I have an interview on Friday for a job and I'm hoping the interview goes well. I haven't interviewed in a while so this will be a change for me!

I also went to look at apartments yesterday and found one that I fell in love with! I applied for it and should hear back soon about whether or not I got it. I'm crossing my fingers about that as well. Other than that, nothing much is new.

I'll keep you guys posted!

(Oh and Amy if you read this post, I'm not able to get into your blog anymore!)
