My vacation is officially over. I can’t believe I am going back to work full time today. Long gone are the countless days of sleeping in, staying up late, and watching Netflix for hours at a time. Goodbye mornings, where I woke up when I felt like it. Instead, I have to set up alarms on my phone again, and be forced to come out of a deep and blissful sleep so that I can spend an hour putting on makeup and doing my hair, and then go to work where I will be on my feet for 8 hours straight.
See you later flexible hours, where I can go to the gym when I feel like it, or impromptu trips to the movies, because now everything will have to be planned according to my work schedule. And so long kindle. You’ve been great to me this summer, but with school and work, I don’t know how much time we will spend together now, and I will seriously miss getting lost with you in amazing stories, especially ones involving Witchcraft and “the boy who lived”.
But it’s not all bad, now that I am working again, I can say hello to SHOPPING, I’ve missed you old friend. How have you been Sephora? I haven’t shopped your beautifully stocked shelves as much as I would have liked in the past few months, and I am very excited to get acquainted with all of the amazing products you have now! Same goes to almost every other store in any mall.
Hello money, it will be nice to see more of you in my bank account again, so that I can feed my obsession for Starbucks and Chipotle as often as I please. Hello busy days, new friends, and new memories, I’m excited to have all of you in my life, and I am excited for where this new job will take me. I love having a lot to do, and I will officially be a busy little bee from here on out. Bring it on!
I’m just so torn between excitement and sadness as I go back to work today, I will miss the freedom and SLEEP that comes with not working, but I miss being busy, working hard, and doing something that I enjoy! (and of course making money..)
So today is a bittersweet day, but I know the good outweighs the bad, and I look forward to what’s to come. Wish me luck as I start on this new journey! And let me know in the comments what you love (and hate) about starting a new job! xoxo
