Moving On

tee: Five Below, skirt: thrifted, shoes: Payless, belt: Forever 21, necklace: Charming Charlie, watch: Target

It’s official – I accepted an offer, my background check came back already, and my resignation letter has been turned in….I got a new job!!! Starting on Monday August 27th I will officially be an Academic Advisor for a local university. I am beyond excited!!  Almost exactly a year ago I graduated with my Master’s degree in Academic Advising from Kansas State University (all online while working a full time job) and I’m finally getting the opportunity to put it to use. This was by far the hardest I’ve ever worked to earn a job offer, so I feel like I definitely earned this. I’m thinking a post about interview outfit selection may be in order in the near future. :)

It feels so good to share this news! For obvious reasons, I couldn’t post about it. Most people don’t really know I have a blog, but it still wasn’t worth the risk. Thanks for all your support while I was in my funk…everyone has rough days, but I’m pretty sure those feelings will stay in the past for quite awhile now! :)

*went back and realized this outfit was perfect for Everybody Everywear this month.  Woohoo! ;)
