I didn’t get that job that I knew I was under-qualified for. But at least I tried, right? I’m neither sad nor happy about it – I had no expectations and it is what it is.
In positive job-related news, I had my year anniversary at my company last week so now they will match my retirement plan contribution up to 5%. I have to get on that and sign up.
Today is my youngest brother’s birthday. He’s 9. Which is unbelievable. I was a freshman in college when he was born. Where does the time go? Seriously. We had his birthday party this weekend and he asked for the strangest gift. This growing child that could easily be my own kid. I love ‘em.
I bought this bike (in white) around Thanksgiving. And it was a 2009 model so I didn’t have to pay the full price tag. VERY exciting. Except I didn’t allow myself to be too excited because I knew it would be months and months before I could use it. (Well, as B says, we could be riding in the cold weather – but I’m not a fan). Now that it’s the end of January I’m dreaming of warmer weather. I’ve started buying bike accessories every paycheck so I can spread it out financially. So far I have gloves, a seat gel thing, and this weekend I bought a helmet! And I’m working on a bike rack for my car, looking on craigslist. I feel like a kid. I can’t wait for the weather to get warm so I can get out on the trails.
