Life, Love, and Other Things


Today has been a doozy of a day, following up a really stressful weekend. The worry and excitement have worn off and I've finally hit the proverbial wall and now I just feel exhausted. I promise I'll be back to the beauty posts tomorrow, but for today I need to ramble.

I mentioned in my Liebster award post that I really love reading - I mean, I really lovelovelove reading. I took a year off after undergrad to work, but I've been applying to masters of library science programs this year. My ideal match is a school that is in Captain Doctor Boyfriend Person's town - and I have been accepted there! I mentioned a few posts ago that I was back in CDBP's town in the middle of the week for grad school related activities, which was, specifically, an interview for a graduate assistant position at my dream school.

Today I received an email that I was being offered the GA position.

When I read the few sentences comprising that email, I almost started crying in my cubical out of sheer excitement and happiness. I basically thought I had flubbed my interview and spent all weekend nervous that I'd wrecked my future. I got super nervous (unusual for me) and basically gibbered like an idiot for 20 minutes in a conference room full of faculty. I was convinced the email was going to be rejecting me; instead they're placing me exactly where I want to be (it involves working directly with a Children's and YA collection) and I am over-the-moon excited. I had so much raw energy today at work that I inevitably had to crash tonight. (At one point today I stepped outside the office and literally jumped up and down outside the building while on the phone with my mom. I looked like a crazy person winning the lottery, according to one co-worker.)

One of the toughest things about this year has been the distance between me and CDBP. It's hard being apart from your best friend for weeks at a time, and it's made even harder since CDBP is in a program notorious for leaving you exactly no free time. I feel incredibly blessed that in just a few short months I'm going to be able to basically live my dream both professionally (my MLS program!) and personally (living just a few minutes from CDBP!). For the first time in a while I am going to go to bed tonight worried about exactly NOTHING.

Tomorrow I'll be back with beauty posts, but tonight is going to be me just being happy :)

XOXO Samantha
