Hello hello hello Blogosphere. Welcome to Spring (finally). Yesterday, Easter Sunday, I actually wore a dress and bare legs. Thank you, Mother Nature for finally letting up on being a bitch and allowing us some sun. It was a glorious weekend. 🙂
But, I have some serious news. It’s been a little while in the making but it’s finally happening. I am moving. Several months ago I applied for a “dream job” of sorts. It was on a whim and I decided to go forth with it, never actually expecting it to turn into anything. But, not too long ago I received some follow up, discussed my options and have decided to jump ship here and have accepted a position as a writer with a small publication in New York City. I’m overwhelmed. Sad, yet excited.
I am full-on a Valley Girl and will always consider this my home but right now this is the opportunity of a lifetime and since I’ve already let one opportunity pass me by (https://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/letting-life-pass-me-by-or-how-i-sabotaged-my-life/) I couldn’t let this one go.
So, here I go. In less than 3 weeks I will be a New Yawker. Wish me luck.
Mother Nature is a bitch, y’all. Welcome to Nova Scotia!!
Yesterday we had gorgeous pre-Spring weather here in Nova Scotia. It was sunny and warm and all the crappy feet of snow have melted over this last week (which, BTW, I was excited for as no snow will greatly help us out in the search for Mark Clarke who has been missing since February 4th: https://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/missing-person/). So, imagine my disgust when I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland. I’m devastated. I hate winter. We’re six days away from hitting Spring and were soooo close yesterday but now we’re back to snow-covered ground again (it’s an ongoing joke that Nova Scotia has 4 seasons – winter, almost winter, more winter and road construction).
However, as I was opening my office this morning I happened to look out the window and saw a man dancing down the sidewalk thru the snow. He reminded me of the delivery dude in the Romeo & Juliet scene in Empire Records (love!!).
(watch at 1:29 in)
The man totally made my Friday. 🙂
A happy one to you all!
PS: Yesterday morning I sent a message to my friend Anic saying “Happy Friday Friend!” An hour later I sent another message “Oh shit…it’s only effing Thursday! FML”
Her response: “Nahahah.”
It was a very.long.week.
