I promised myself I wouldn't be one of those people that starts a blog, keeps it up for a few months, then abandons it all together.  I ended up doing that with my trivia blog, but I will try not to do it with this one.

My main reason for updating is thus:


It's exactly the job I've been looking for and I couldn't be happier.  My next step is to find a moderately-priced apartment in the city.  Then all will be well.

In other news, the doctor has told me I have screwy cholesterol, so I've had to change my diet.  I don't eat much red meat, so my biggest problem is dairy.  I will miss it.  I also have to start exercising more.  However, this won't be as drastic a change as I will have to walk a mile each way between my new job location and the metro.

The day after I took the job offer, I realized just how much of my life had been devoted to finding a new job these past couple months.  I woke up the day after and realized that I could take my shower earlier because I didn't have to spend my allotted 20 minutes on craigslist.  I got home, went to my computer, stared at it realizing I didn't need to spend the evening on washingtonjobs or careerbuilder (I made myself apply for at least one job every day).  I now have much more time to devote to my hobbies.  Eventually I will buy a microphone and complete my New York Interactive essay.

This weekend I will be spending my newly gained free time reading, shopping, cleaning, and musing over my new life ahead of me.
