Seriously…no really…HOW has it been three months since I wrote a blog post? The last you heard from me, I was having a Tiny Melt-Down…and feeling a little down on myself not being able to get a job since quitting on January 25th.
Well….since my last post (exactly 3 months and 13 days ago)…I had a BUNCH (read: 12) more interviews…even some in NYC, which (to be honest) I didn’t even really WANT. I just got to a point where I NEEDED a job…or something to bring in income, because, as all you “adulting” people know, the bills keep coming in…every month…regardless of what life crisis you’re going through. And I certainly wasn’t the exception.
It was EXACTLY 91 days…from the time I walked out on my job, to the time I started a new one. 91 days of no income, and me just sitting…91 (!!!) days. And when you put it all out there, doesn’t seem that long…but it is…to a person who probably lost her mind a bit out there…from having nothing to do…
So in those 91 days…I painted, organized, crafted, cleaned, cooked a TREMENDOUS amount of food [including a “Friends-giving” in March], assembled a ridiculous amount of puzzles, we went on our honeymoon, and I (might have) lost my mind [a bit]. Luckily, I had great friends that kept me occupied!
Shout outs to Doug & Sofia for joining us on the “Friends-giving”, helping me to assemble puzzles, and cat-sitting for when we were on our Honeymoon! Also, HUGE shout out to Tiffany for a bunch of overdue lunch(es), to Erin for inviting me to the Painted Grape and inspiring more creativity, to my AMAZING Mother for randomly chatting for 2+ hours every week or so, and last but (certainly) not least, to my hubby [who won’t read this] for just supporting me through my early-life-freak-out.
Because of Erin (thank you!!!), and her inviting me to the “Spring is in the Air” class at the Painted Grape, I created the painting at the top left…and then had the inspiration to create the other three seasons…Summer (top right), Fall (bottom left), and Winter (bottom right).
Top Row: “Friends-Giving”, Bruschetta, Braised Short Ribs & Creamy Polenta (for Greg’s Birthday)
Middle Row: Sweet Potato Hash & Two Eggs, Homemade Sourdough, and Homemade Pasta with Fresh Veggies!
Bottom Row: The BEST damn sweet potato side you ever did have…SO good…
SO…do you think I was busy enough in those 91 days? Do you think I should open an Etsy shop and sell my paintings? Do you think they would even sell???? Do you think I have “enough” to go to culinary school? I’d love to hear your thoughts…please comment!!
Also – I love you all, and I hope you have a great weekend!!
