Life Updates – May 2017

Hey everyone! I am SO SORRY, that I’ve been neglecting my blog lately. So I thought I would take a few minutes and catch everyone on up on what’s been going on!

So I took my North Carolina Certified Paralegal Exam at the beginning of April, so I spent the better part of March studying and prepping for it. I’m so glad that that is out of the way and I should have my results come back in the next week or so.

At about the same time, I was looking for jobs (I’m not going to tell you how miserable that process was), and accepted a new job offer.  It’s a great opportunity to learn a different side to being a Paralegal.  It was a really great raise and benefits, so I’m super excited to be settling into my new office.  It’s another learning curve, but I think I’m starting to get the hang of it. I was sad to say good bye to my previous employer, but this is a wonderful new experience.

Also in my “she’s gone MIA” time, my kitten got neutered (it didn’t help calm my hyper fuzzball down), and my dog was really sick. He’s better now, but we were super worried because he’s so old.  Don’t you wish your furbabies lived forever…. Sigh.

I was also busy planning for my parents’ vacation that I was not invited on – you know picking the place, booking the hotel, getting the oil changed in the truck and the tires rotated… and then left at home.  In their defense, and which they kept reminding me of, I did go to college 10 minutes from the beach for 4 beautiful years. Also, they totally deserve this, but I am jealous that I’m not sitting on a beach in Florida right now.

About the same time as I started applying for new jobs, my best friend, whom I met in college, told me she’s moving across the state to my city, and we’re getting an apartment together. Yeah that’s a long sentence. I’m so freaking excited! So she’s looking for new jobs, too and has been interviewing with places to no avail. Please cross your fingers for us, because WE FREAKING NEED THIS.  So her, Jax (kitty), and I are all hopefully about to be shopping for an apartment. I can’t wait. I’ve been frantically saving and planning, and so has she, and hopefully everything will come together soon.  I promise you will know when the move happens.


So my friends – I’m going to be making a more conscious effort to blog and will be giving A Blonde’s Life the attention it deserves. I’ve got some exciting posts drafted that will be going live soon, so don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss a post. If there’s any types of posts you’d like to see, please let me know! I’d be happy to consider anything and everything and see if I can make it work!
