Life’s Ups and Downs

starbucks_drinkHey lovely readers. I haven’t been posting consistently like I know I should be but the last week or so has been rather difficult. I had interviewed for a job last week and I thought I had an amazing shot at it but it turns out I was wrong. I just got declined for the job today. It stung a bit, actually quite a lot. I’ll never understand why these things don’t work out but for whatever reason, they just don’t.

I’m sitting at my favorite spot in Starbucks eating a snowman cookie and drinking a gingerbread latte. Two things that will help me cope for sure! I also ran into Target to get my favorite cherry M&Ms and of course came out with a bunch of stuff I never intended to buy. However, all of it was on sale. Bought Twilight Breaking Dawn: Part 2 for only $5! I’ll be watching that tonight while I eat away my sorrows. They also had the perfect gold braided belt ($4 on clearance) to go with a new dress my wonderful mom got me. Finally, they had a mirrored jewelry box on sale for $12. I’ve been wanting it for about 2 years but I’m too cheap to pay the full price ($35).

I guess God puts little pieces of happiness in our lives when we need them most. Today, I definitely needed them! Sometimes life just throws a wrench in your plans. I think part of living a good life is learning to accept these “wrenches” and moving on. Just a thought. I’ll start writing again tomorrow; already have something in the works.
