I’ve not logged in to tumblr since, let’s see (checks watch)
I’m not dead or anything, just exceptionally busy. In the time I’ve not been tumbling I have accomplished the following boring grown-up feats:
Moved into my first shared apartment with Handsome Boyfriend Zack, who has been working part-time and volunteering at a local historical site. He has recently been hired on as a seventh grade Latin teacher at a private school.
Meanwhile, I got promoted twice in as many months at my full-time job with Nordstrom. Now I arrange shiny objects for a living as the accessory department jewelry specialist.
Got my wiener back.
Opened my first credit card and changed banks in preparation for my latest project: financing a new car. My current transport is falling to pieces before even limbo-ing to the 100,000 mile marker, sporting a broken after-market air compressor and a fume-spewing hole in the gas tank. When I graduated high school I brilliantly bought a Saturn, which, like its planetary brother Pluto, has since been ruled obsolete and can no longer be repaired without adventurous trips into junkyards (or deep space, whichever is cheaper.) My top choices for a replacement include a new Honda Fit or a certified pre-owned Prius, whichever I can get a better deal on. Practical, reliable, and efficient cars with good resale value.
Basically, I’ve become a boring adult and I’m so, so sorry, tumblr.
However. Thanks to Black Friday and a few other shopping incentives, I have been hoarding untested perfume samples on a massive scale, and in January I will start rolling out regular fragrance reviews to my blog Miss Millésime. I’ll try to maintain some sort of existence here as well, since I’ll be spending most of January building my portfolio in preparation to re-enter art school.
In sum, recent times have been unusually busy and hectic, the busiest and hectic-iest I’ve seen in a good long while.
How have you been?
