I started a new job this week, as a receptionist. I’m not sure what receptionists DO other than answer phones and sign for packages. Can someone illuminate me? I’ve spent the past week meeting some great people and being bored out of my gourd!

The good thing about being employed is that I’m sleeping like a baby. Seriously. I am SO glad that the time changed over the weekend or I would have been SCREWED trying to catch the 7:18 bus every day, but so far so good. I’ve had no trouble waking up at 6:15 every morning because I’ve been going to bed around 10:30 PM (about 90 minutes earlier that I used to, according to the clock, but just 30 minutes earlier in reality). Surprisingly, that 1/2 hour makes a HUGE difference. I’d like to go to bed earlier, but then I’d get up earlier and then I’d never see Ben because he wakes up just as I’m leaving. Lucky bastard. I guess I had my bouts of unemployment where I got to sleep in too, so I can’t be TOO upset.

What else….. the new H&M opened in Denver yesterday. It was SO CROWDED, like IKEA crowded. I got gifts for friends that were opening-day specials. I got 2 sweaters for myself, but I’m going to return one of them because in retrospect it is too small. I have a shopping problem. Last weekend I went to the Nordstrom 1/2 yearly sale and spent WAY too much money on things that I’m going to return, well at least the most expensive of them.

I had an interview on Friday afternoon for a job¬†as an admin/Jr. paralegal at a firm in Denver who represents HOAs and conveniences. I think that the interview went well, but I also know that I’m the youngest/lest qualified candidate who’s being interviewed for the position. If I get the job, it’s based on my asked for the least amount of money and my sparking personality; possibly based on my mold-ability too.

Having a job would be great. I’m getting kinda bored hanging out with myself. Thankful, I’ve cashed in 3 of my 10 birthday credits from Ben (he gave me a home made gift certificate for 10 dance or other athletic classes) and he bought me another Groupon (seeing a theme?) for 3 pole dance classes at Boulder Spirals. I’m also going to buy a book of local bus passes this weekend and start going to a free yoga class being offered at the university on Wednesday evenings (5:30-7). Maybe I’ll meet other friends! I met Miri at a belly dancing class at the university rec center and neither of us were students!

What else am I doing to keep busy? Lisa and I spent most of Friday getting to and going to the new IKEA before my interview (I got there right on time, 10 minutes before I was due). I did very well and only bought what Ben and I had discussed, a summer weight comforter (so I don’t keep alternatively turning down the temp or throwing off the blankets in a sweaty fit in my sleep), a bold colored duvet cover (ours is quite faded after 4 years of biweekly washings), and some place mats (need to swap the colorful ones I got for the metallic ones we can’t really afford) because I’m tired of ironing the nice cotton ones my mom got us from Vietnam.

I need a job to support my shopping/ingredient buying/craft supply hoarding habits.
