This is a great series to update what’s currently going on in my life – what I’ve been doing, loving and thinking about.
Musicals! I’ve always been a fan of musicals like all kids who grow up on Disney but, Broadway musicals have rapidly become an obsession. I think it started when I went to see a screening of Les Miserables. I was sixteen and the main reason I went to see it was because I was obsessed with Nick Jonas and he was going to play the part of Marius. Tbh, it wasn’t his best performance but I enjoyed the rest of the musical regardless. Flash forward to my first attendance of the live production of Wicked and then Phantom and I was hooked! Last year, Hamilton came into my life and what a spiritual experience that was! And guess what, friends? This girl got tickets to see the Hamiltour in San Francisco next month! When I received the confirmation email for those tickets I swear there was a light that shined down on me as I looked up to the heavens and heard the beautiful choir of Hamilton sing.
I also love this quote which I just yesterday:
But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. – C.S. Lewis
At the moment I’m not reading anything I know, I know shame on me. But I just finished listening to an audiobook of Jane’s Austen’s Sense & Sensibility and currently listening to Mansfield Park. This audiobook collection is a dramatic reading of all of Jane Austen’s novels and I’ve been enjoying it so much! 110% recommend! Here’s the link!
I started rewatching Breaking Bad. Seriously one of the best shows to have ever been created. The Walking Dead just finished it’s season so I’ll have to wait in anguish for that show to return in the fall.
My thoughts are muddled by the fact that I need to find another job asap. My manager basically gave my job to another person having no reason to whatsoever. To sum up, I was training this person for a month having been told they would be moving to another branch so you could imagine my shock when I was the one to actually be replaced and moved to another office to do a “project.” The first day at this new office I got so upset with what they had me doing that I had the impulse to quit. But first, I went to lunch to take a step back and think about the consequences quitting would have. I came to the conclusion that this is exactly what my employer wants so they won’t have to pay me unemployment had they just let me go. But unfortunately, until I find something else, I’m at an impasse and can’t afford to leave. It’s not like it was a dream job or anything. It was just a stepping stone just something to bring in an income. I was getting too comfortable here and the truth is I deserve better now more than ever. So, no I’m not upset because I loved my job, I’m upset because these people are shady and what they did was wrong.
There’s only one thing I can do and it’s move on and move forward. There’s something better for me I can only hope it comes my way soon.
My trip to San Francisco next month! Not only do I get to see Hamilton but I also get to see my friends from college!
I get a new job soon!
Making me happy:
Musicals, audiobooks and my always supportive family!
