Before I took the break from blogging, you all know I was on the search for a new job. Well, my job had gotten to the point where it was unbearable. Thankfully... I was offered a position at a local jewelry store with a very high reputation in April. It couldn't have come at a better time, because I was seriously to the point where I just couldn't stand to go to work anymore. Its pretty sad to be put under that sort of pressure for the simple reason that your boss is a horrible person. That's all it was, and I'm not ashamed to say it. // So far, I really enjoy my job at the jewelry store. It makes it hard because I know that I need to move on and get a big girl job, but at least I can stand to go to work on a daily basis. And I'm getting paid more, and am able to work full-time and usually some overtime. It helps out A LOT.
So speaking of that big girl job, I graduated with my Associate's in Applied Business Management: Human Resources Management in May. When I chose HR as my major, never did I realize how hard it would be to get a job in the field! In order to get a job as an HR Assistant in my area, I don't even have the experience. Its hard to imagine that, because everyone needs to start somewhere! But then as just another little update, I'm going to start working on my Bachelor's in Accounting this fall. I still want a job in HR, but I'm really hoping this will help.

I've moved a couple times since before. I have moved in with my infamous boyfriend Alex (I'm sure if you read my blog, you know who he is) and his family. I thank God that they allow me to stay with them until Alex and I can get on our feet. We've started to passively look at houses. The realtor called me today to let me know that she doesn't really have what we're looking for right now, unless we want to pay an arm and a leg (which we obviously cannot afford), but she'll keep an eye out. I've never bought a house before or have been around that process. Does anyone have any information they can provide?
Oh, and I don't think I ever mentioned that we have a puppy! A pain in the butt, little lab-border collie mix. Hehe.
And last but not least... my health problems. I went to my family doctor a few weeks ago, and we both agreed that something is not right with my body. So, I went to do the pelvic ultrasound, and they found numerous cysts on both of my ovaries. I still need to go get the blood work, because its a matter of getting myself out of bed early, so I can go before work... But I've been unofficially diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I go to an OB doctor August 2nd to discuss this some more. I'm kind of hoping the OB doctor will end up forwarding me onto an Endocrinologist. I guess we'll see how it goes.
