Keep the change!

SO, today is officially the best day... this year I suppose haha. I got an email saying a got the job I applied for! I'm so excited! The past three weeks since the interview has really been a roller-coaster!
I filled out a form online.. an "interest form", not really expecting much. Then I received an email asking to fill out an actual application because they were interested. AWESOME. So I filled it out, rather hopeful now. The next day I got a call asking for an actual interview for that Friday. NERVE-WRECKING. I'm no good for being social. Or making eye contact.... or being exactly what people are looking for when they interview you haha. But surprisingly I felt ultra confident that they were going to call me back. She said if they were interested in my employment, I can expect a follow-up email on Wednesday. So I waited. Confident. I had this! This was IN THE BAG! No doubt in my mind. I stayed at my computer that entire day. Refreshing my email home page. Once it hit midnight, officially Thursday, I was devastated! Even my boyfriend felt bad for me! Spring break came and gone, and every time I saw the chain stores I applied to, I gave it little stank face... how dare they not hire me! haha. Then I got a SECOND phone call. Same store, asking for another interview. I was ecstatic, but it made no sense whatsoever. A second interview? So I called the store back and they said it was a "mistake". A MISTAKE?! Back down to miserable I went. And then today I got an email congratulating me and asking to accept or decline the job.

I'm so sorry if you found that completely pointless, but it was a horrible feeling! Especially since out of all the places I applied to I didn't get a call back. And the one interview I went to, I surprised myself considering I was witty and.. charming and stuff.

So now, I can spoil my boyfriend and buy him all the little things his heart desires. And take him out to eat. And say "No, put away your wallet, I'LL PAY," and say "I wear the pants" (even though I say it now) and actually mean it haha.

SORRY IF YOU READ ALL THIS AND REGRET IT! But, you're amazing. Know that:)

Anyhow, I guess I should explain the reason behind my titling. I'm so broke these days that my family/people I know literally give me their loose change! I'm not offended or ashamed or anything. I actually think it's sort of funny. And I must admit I get a little excited when I do get change. Something about putting my coin purse to use just makes me happy! Point is, they can keep their change hahaha. I'm SO clever.

Give up something?

So this whole Lent thing in my family and most of the people I know involves people giving up something. I'm not at all a religious person (Although I respect it and people's views), but I like the idea of giving something up. I contemplated a few times, and I guess I've come to a conclusion. MAKE-UP. I'm not doing this for religious purposes, just for myself. Plus what's the point of make-up if it's just going to sweat off!! What would you give up? Or what HAVE you given up?

Anyhow, last night I spent a few hours with my friend. I played sort of a model for him while he fooled around with my camera. Although a lot of the shots are rather horrid 'cause of the lighting, a few came out nicely! At least I think so haha.
