New Job... New Beginnings... New Outlook

I wish I was one of those people who wrote in their blogs every day... I also wish I was one of those people who actually others READ her blog, giving myself a reason to write...


Anyway, on October 30th, 2009 I started my new job with M.A.C. cosmetics. It's a place that I have wanted to work since I first walked into the store at age 15. I will never forget the first thing I bought there... it was a Smolder Eyeliner pencil... and that started it all. I've always loved makeup, but not really in the way most girls do. I was about creating art on my face and experimenting with colors. I love that I get to do this every day, I am so happy that my job involves art. There is also a retail side of it, but that's only temporary. I am going to work my way up and become a senior artist. I feel so lucky to have a job so young, that I actually love. The only thing I hate about it, are the politics that come with it. It's better than working somewhere like a call center, where I am just wasting my life and time. There are a lot of perks that come with job... the biggest one being the free makeup of course. Every so often, we launch new collections and we get 3 or 4 free pieces (eyeshadow, lip pencil, lipstick, gloss, etc.) from the collection. We each have our little box in the box and there's nothing like walking in and your box is full of free makeup! =) I also got my staff card today! That means I get 60% off now. It's a very generous discount, but we're required to wear so much of their stuff, that it can really add up. I love my job and am excited about where my life may be going. =)




Other than that, things have been going about the same. Blaine and I are just gearing up for Thanksgiving which is this Thursday. My family is coming over to our apartment and I'm so excited to cook! Cooking is one of my favorite things to do, so of course, Thanksgiving is right up my alley. We also just bought Left 4 Dead 2 and the New Super Mario Bros. for the wii, so I'm pretty sure I know what we'll all be doing that day =)

I recently got into a new show called Glee... it's about kids in High School who are in Glee club. I love the music the most on the show. I'm actually listening to the CD right now that Blaine bought me. He's such a sweetheart, listening to it, even though it's not quite his cup of tea. He's definitely a keeper and I'm so lucky to have him. We're on our third Thanksgiving together this year! It's so crazy! Time certainly flies when you're having fun. =)

I just wanted you to know that there is someone who reads your blogs. I subscribe to yours with RSS and it always puts a huge smile on my face when you post an update. My name is Toby. I'm a theatre student from New Zealand, so I know what its like to be struggling in a competitive industry, and I just wanted you to know you are doing a great job. Keep it up. Who knows? I might put a blog up sometime too. Thanks for brightening my day :-)
