All this feels strange and untrue...

As of late there has been a few changes going on in my life. The biggest change is I got a new job! Starting in about a week I will get to add medical assistant to waitress/hostess, clothes folder/cashier, and barista on my list of "Jobs Cadie Has Done." I'm really excited because not only will I get a nice pay increase but it's relevant to my career goals. I mean how many people get to make more money in a job that is actually helpful to achieving their dreams? I'm actually going to miss being a barista and my coworkers at Nordstrom but I'd be silly to not take this job. Besides, I'm going to stay on for weekends at least until the holiday season ends since I'd feel terrible to abandon my coworkers when they need the extra staff!

On a completely different note, it's been so cold here in NJ but no snow yet. As a former resident of Syracuse, NY it's a little weird for it to be so cold yet not have at least a foot of snow on the ground at this time of year. I haven't quite forgotten all those mornings trekking 12 blocks to campus from my house out on Westcott St. in the cold. However, this cold weather has gotten me excited about chunky sweaters and winter print leggings. My favorite purchase this season has probably been my earrings from Kimberly Baker!

I first saw them on Gossip Girl (yes I did watch it, yes I probably would still watch it if I had free time for tv) on Vanessa and immediately fell in love. There are a few other pieces I've been drooling after but unfortunately they're a little out of my price range especially since it's holiday season and I should be shopping for my loved ones! Speaking of which, I am completely behind online shopping but my problem has been that I have a hard time not buying something for myself after buying all my friends a gift from my favorite online stores. I hope everyone is having a good holiday season! :)
