Some pretty amazing things happened this weekend. Let’s get right to it, shall we?
Blogger meet-up with the super-sweet, kind-hearted, and insightful Mandiee! Check out her blog, it’s filled with the most delicious food!
[I officially failed as a photographer by actually FORGETTING my camera. Mandiee’s Point and shoot to the rescue!]
I got a job. Like, a real job.
A few minutes after I left the fair that hosted the above bike event, my parents talked to the owner who was managing a booth for a nearby all-natural vegan cafe. They found out she was hiring, and she found out my parents had a teenage daughter looking for a job. I called, got an interview for Monday, and after getting all the nonsensical teenage work permit paperwork filled out (a headache if ever there was one), BOOM! I have officially have a dream job working in a “make everything from scratch” vegan cafe starting Friday.
Excuse while I scream some more (in Amanda fashion, naturally)
EEEEeeeeEEEEEEE 😀 😀 😀
Things are looking up.
I’ve made it pretty obvious on the blog that I had been rather downcast about our recent move to the Detroit metro area. However, among other recent events (like the peace walk), this weekend showed me that city living can have it’s benefits– where else would I make a friend who is a vegan blogger and become an employee at my favorite cafe?
Things are definitely looking up (my finance situation included), and I think I am truly starting to understand the phrase, “make the best of every situation”.
Important question: I want to hear your thoughts on what posts you enjoy!
Photography posts? Recipe posts? Animal posts? (Fill in the blank) posts? In the past, I have tried not to put “personal” events on the blog. I guess I always thought it was boring to people? Lately, however, has been more “life” than kitchen creating.
