I started my new job at Cville University this week and made a quick discovery: I have almost no professional clothes. I mean, I had some from my practicum in 2008, but not enough for everyday wear.
So I went to goodwill and a local consignment store and came away with five shirts, five sweaters, and a skirt for about $33. Yeah. It made my day.

I've been having a good bit of fun thrifting and assorted objects found at my parents' house. For the next few weeks, Cory and I will be working in different cities :(. I will have a bit of time on my hands-when I'm not working, anyway-so expect a few more projects in the near future. The internet is spotty, but we're working on that.
I am really loving working in at the university. I didn't hate Chick-fil-A, but working this new job is rewarding. I do a lot of little detail work, but it actually matters for the people involved. I have part of the responsibility for enabling students in their academic careers-something that matters a lot to me. These degrees can do so much for these students' futures, and I get to be a part of it. I've come to realize that this is the reason I wanted to go into education when I started college.
I hope everyone is having a lovely fourth! We're eating burgers and such tonight. What are you up to?
