Tis the season

I don't really celebrate Christmas but I still dig the season. Why? Typically everybody is in a happy mood, making my life easier. I am getting out of town for a few days and coming back next week to enjoy a few days at home before 2011.

I won't be here for boxing day but am planning on checking in online to see if I can snag some boxing day deals. As much as I love clothes, this boxing day, I am actually looking to buy some electronics I've had on my mind so,, ect. I hope you have good deals online.

I splurged

and bought DiorShow Iconic mascara! I like my current drugstore mascara but everybody and their mother loves DiorShow and curiosity killed this cat. The price kept me away but I got a $15 off $40 coupon from Sephora and I thought why not.

I meant to buy the original DiorShow mascara but somehow ended up with the Iconic variety. It claims to curl and I tried it out today and I like it. It seperates my lashes so well! But how do you guys wash your mascara off? I am struggling to get the mascara off my lashes without losing any along the way.

Will report after wearing it longer if I love it and would buy at its regular price of $31! eek, just typing that made me cringe.

Time Flies....

Half a year since my last post. I don't think anybody even reads this thing anymore....

What happened? Well I started getting paranoid about writing posts. At that time, I really wanted to blog about looking for a new job and things happening with my family but I got paranoid about people figuring me out and decided to keep things to myself. Without wanting to write about what was going on in my life made me feel like I had nothing to write about for a few weeks. A few weeks turned into a month and then 2 months and then I kind of forgot about this thing. I still read the blogs I follow on my google reader but I was no longer excited about writing posts hence the lul. So I am back for now. Got a bit of a writing bug and I also have time now that it's close to Christmas and I am taking things easy.

What's happened in the last half year?
  1. I got promoted at work! but I just mentioned earlier I was looking to leave! What gives? The thing is I was doing work, etc. that was not part of my job description and really the role of a level that was above me. It frustrated me that I didn't have the correct title & recognition and I made it known. I got answers that they were doing the best they could to make everything right but nothing was really changing so I started looking elsewhere to leave. Well a few months ago, I got called into my bosses office and he told me I was finally getting promoted and would have the right title, salary and recognition. I am still doing the same thing I was a year ago which tells me that I should have gotten promoted a year ago like I had asked for. What have I learned? Corporations wouldn't think twice about doing what's best for the company and I shouldn't feel any different. Earlier in the year when I was looking elsewhere for a new job because I felt bad and guilty about it because I like my boss and coworkers but at the end of the day, I was being taken advantage of and I shouldn't have felt bad about it. I am still early in my career and I chalk this up as a learning experience.
  2. I lost ~10lbs! I remember posting on here when I first joined the gym. Well it's taken a lot of work but I am now about 10lbs lighter and back to my old clothes! I still want to loose another 5 and I'll be super happy but being able to fit into my old clothes feels good again. It was easy staying in shape in the warmer months. Now that it's cold, I want to hibernate in my house all the time and I need to keep motivating myself to bear the coldness and make it to the gym.
Speaking of the gym, it's time for me to get ready to go there.
