Today will be a good day. I have decided that by eating chocolate for breakfast, that all evil has been thwarted for the next 8 hours.

I'll let you know how that works.

I KNOW I keep talking about changing my hair... Chopping it off, becoming a redhead, going darker, highlighting it more... Finally, I bought a box of hair goo and decided to have a go at being a dark-tressed temptress.

I. Love. It.

I should have done it sooner.

Maybe you'll get pictures if I ever get brave.

Vacation Update

Where to begin?

So my vacation is now officially over, in quite a big way.

Today was going to suck. There was really no way around it. I had to face the people that I am destined to leave in almost a week. Will I miss them? Yes. Will I look back after I hand in my keys for the last time? Maybe. I know better than to burn my bridges... kinda. My alter ego destroys most bridges I have anyway.

I am, in a nutshell, a true Gemini. I am blessed (and cursed) with the ability to see both sides of most pictures, and I'm often torn if I have to pick sides. In this regard, I can be seen as being two-faced, because I can empathize with both parties in a flamefest. I do my best to stay neutral, even when the flamefest is focused on me. As wonderful as I might just be, I know my faults all too well and realize that there's some truth in every bitter thing the opposition has to say.

I digress. What I'm trying to say is that while I HAVE to be mild and meek mannered Julie the Super Banker at work, if you push me too far you will meet my alter ego Weibke. I'm really hoping that I can keep my inner biker bitch/velociraptor under control long enough to keep the friends I've made while there. We'll see.

I got the job!!

I found out today that my interview on Saturday was a success. I was offered the position at a location that is 5 minutes away from my house. If I continued to work in Bellevue, I would spend fifteen 24 hour days in traffic a year. For what I get paid, the job simply isn't worth the commute.

Girl pals

I kind of wish I had more girl buddies... I'd rather like to go handbag shopping with a few best friends and to sip tea and gossip while sitting on the porch... A few feminine sorts to tell me which pants look bad, and when not to wear pinstripes.

It's occurred to me that it's quite possible to be entirely happy with the love of your life... but having that one person does not solve the feeling of friendlessness.

Vacation... only a day away!

Tomorrow promises to be the Best Day Ever. One day away from a vacation, plus tomorrow's a payday. Thank goodness! The coffers are getting a bit low...

On Saturday I have an interview at a branch that is much closer to my home. The last interview at a closer branch went wonderfully, but I decided to turn down the offer since my pay wasn't going up as much as I had hoped it would. I can a) Advance and commute or B) Keep the same level of job but be closer to home. Hmmm... decisions, decisions!
