A New Job, A New City, A New Blog Design and a Breakup

hey girl hey.

 first and foremost. do you love my new (fully public and ready to go) blog? because sarah did all this and honestly, tears she has been that great. i've been such a knit picky pain in the rear and she seriously continues to edit and work and love me. book her. now.

secondly. oh hey. why was i so weird? why did i take my blog private for awhile? why? well...

that time...

i got a job with the walt disney company and i'm moving to the happiest place on earth in 3 weeks.

no joke.

i think you all have guessed my love for the mouse and i've been applying for years (it is very hard to get into disney corporate) and then out of the blue this recruiter contacts me and here we are. it doesn't feel real even as i type this. i'll be working in finance over their corporate alliances and me, this girl, gets to make decisions for her favorite company in the world.

i'm scared / nervous / excited / anxious. 

but here it is. a new adventure. life with a new viewfinder. and most importantly, for the first time ever, i get to work for something that i am so passionate about.

i guess there is something else to address and i'll keep it short because the pain is still so raw my insides don't quite handle it well yet.

the pending move to a new town made manfriend realize he didn't want to take us to that level of commitment.

(weird since we lived together, got scooby together and the day before he walked out of our lives we were the happiest two people i could have ever described). 

i'll say this. no one, no one, is worth your time and your love if they can choose to walk out on you without even trying. i'm just now figuring all of that out now.

that being said, i'd like to leave you with a little quote from steve jobs.

"you've got to find what you love. and that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. if you haven't found it yet, keep looking. don't settle. as with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. and, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. so keep looking until you find it. don't settle."

will you follow me on this huge adventure? i hope so.

  13. Congrats on the new job! How exciting! I can't wait to hear all about your new life with Scooby living in the Happiest Place on Earth! Keep your head up girl! :)

  14. there is so much to say. ill try to keep it brief:
    I adore your new design. love it. seriously
    i am so so so happy for you and your new job and i can't wait to follow along and hear all about it
    sometimes really hard things happen for a reason. im so sorry. but sometimes these bad things turn out to be good.

  15. good luck to you!! screw that man and congratulations. you will be fabulous!

  16. your new design is fantastic, i love it. i'm so excited for this new adventure of yours, what an amazing opportunity this will be.

    i won't waste your time with platitudes of "everything happens for a reason" & "there's other fish in the sea", but i am so very sorry to hear about manfriend, Katie.

  17. glad you're back!! and holy crap congratulations on your dream job!! going without him is probably not what you had in mind, but you're amazing for not letting the break up hold you back and pass on the job to stay there with him. live your life for you <3
    and the blog design is gorgeous, i love the colors!

  18. I'm so glad you're back! Major congrats on the new job, that is really awesome. Sorry about the manfriend sitch, but I have a sneaky suspicion that you'll be alright :)

  19. GAHHHH GIRL. I had no idea. I'm so sorry. I know you're feeling the worst right now and nothing anyone says can probably make you feel better, but I'll still tell you this. When I got my first news job, I was in a long-term relationship in Florida and the job was in Colorado. My then-boyfriend started acting incredibly weird the day I got the job offer, and broke it off the following day. I was devastated. And shocked. It was so out of nowhere. But moving to another state and another life forced me to move on, and forced me to realize that if he were the right one for me he would have been WITH me on the new adventure, not backing out like a scared little boy. If you need to talk or cry or freak out or just share your exciting new steps as you make the move, you have my number.

    On a happy note, LOVE the new design and so happy for your dream job!

  20. Congrats on the new job! Love the new design. Sorry about manfriend but Scooby seems like the better part of the deal. On to bigger and better things for you!

  21. Sorry for your breakup but honestly, not really; kind of sounds like you dodged a bullet and though I'm sure it's hard, I know you will be fine with time. CONGRATULATIONS on the new job and kudos to you for doing what is best for YOU. Can't wait to hear more about this new adventure.

  22. Ugh so sorry about Manfriend. I just commented on your Instagram- didn't know you were back up and blogging. Coming out of lurkdom to say congratulations! I've been applying for Disney marketing jobs for years. Maybe someday! :)
