WHAT'S UP P?!

SINCE YOU ALL ARE DYING TO KNOW...

 

ABOUT MY SUPER EXCITING LIFE HERE IN CALIFORNIA..JK, NOBODY ASKED HAHAHA..BUT I DECIDED I WANTED TO FILL YOU GUYS IN ON WHAT IS GOIN ON WITH MY LIFE! 

 

THIS IS MOSTLY FOR ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT I HAVENT CALLED BECAUSE I AM HORRIBLE AT CALLING PEOPLE...LITERALLY THE WORST YOU GUYS. I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I HATE PICKING UP THE PHONE FOR THOSE "CATCH UP" CALLS. I HAVE NO PROBLEM CALLING SOMEONE KNOWING IT IS GOING TO BE A 5 MINUTE CONVO AND THAT'S IT, BUT THE THOUGHT OF SOMEONE ASKING ME "HOW'RE YOU DOING?" AND "WHAT ARE YOU UP TO THESE DAYS?", JUST MAKES ME CRINGE (I THINK THOSE QUESTIONS SCARRED ME FOR LIFE POST GRADUATION LOL)...BUT NOW THAT I'VE RAMBLED ON ABOUT NOTHING THAT THIS BLOG IS EVEN ABOUT..LETS BEGIN!!

 

SO FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW..I MOVED TO CALIFORNIA!! NOW, I AM A PLANNER, I LIKE TO HAVE MY LIFE IN ORDER, PLAN OUT MY DAYS, BE VERY ORGANIZED ABOUT THINGS, BUT THIS MOVE WAS THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE. I HAD KNOWN I WAS GOING TO MOVE SOMETIME AT THE END OF JULY OR EARLY AUGUST BUT TRYING TO FIND AN APARTMENT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE, AND A JOB TOO?!!?! FORGET ABOUT IT. SO MY DAD FINALLY CAME TO ME ONE DAY AND TOLD ME HE WOULD BE ABLE TO DRIVE ME DOWN TO CALIFORNIA TO HELP MOVE ALL MY STUFF AND HE WOULD THEN FLY TO FLORIDA FOR A BUSINESS TRIP, THEN BACK HOME TO WASHINGTON. THIS BEING SAID, A DATE WOULD THEN BE SET IN PLACE WHERE I HAD TO LEAVE BECAUSE FLIGHTS WOULD THEN BE IN ORDER. SINCE I WAS MOST DEFINITELY NOT DRIVING THAT 17 HOUR DRIVE BY MYSELF, I TOOK THE DEAL AND THEN OFFICIALLY STARTED SWEATING LOL.

 

HAVING A SET DATE WITH ZERO PLACE TO LIVE AND NO SOURCE OF INCOME YET WAS UHH...TAKIN A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE FOR ME LOL. BUT WE SET OUT FOR MY JOURNEY ANYWAY! ON OUR DRIVE DOWN WE ACTUALLY HEARD BACK FROM AN APARTMENT MY ROOMMATES AND I APPLIED FOR THAT THEY TOOK THE PROPERTY OFF THE MARKET.....HAHAHAHAHA I WAS NOW OFFICIALLY HOMELESS AND JOBLESS AND MY DAD WAS LEAVING ME IN 2 DAYS...LOL AT MY LIFE. BUT GOD IS GOOD, I CAMPED OUT AT A FRIENDS HOUSE FOR ABOUT A WEEK WHERE I WAS TOURING APARTMENT AFTER APARTMENT AND GOING TO INTERVIEW AFTER INTERVIEW. LITTLE DO PEOPLE KNOW, YOU DON'T GET THE APARTMENT OR JOB YOU WANT THE FIRST TIME AROUND..LIKE AT ALL. 

 

FUNNY STORY, I STARTED APPLYING AT LITTLE BOUTIQUES BECAUSE I LIKE A SMALL BUSINESS ATMOSPHERE AND I ACTUALLY GOT HIRED AT A STORE IN LAGUNA BEACH. NOW, THERE ARE SOOOO MANY BOUTIQUES IN MY AREA THAT I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IN WASHINGTON, SO I CHECKED OUT THEIR INSTAGRAM AND KIND OF JUST ROLLED WITH IT. I WENT TO THE INTERVIEW IN LOS ANGELES AND THEN GOT THE JOB!! WOOHOOOO!! RIGHT?!! LOL NO...I GO TO THE STORE TO FILL OUT PAPER WORK AND MY FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE STORE IS THAT A TORNADO HIT THE INSIDE OF IT..GRANTED, THEY WERE HAVING A MAJOR SALE, BUT STILL..WOAH! SECOND, THE MANAGER ASKED ME HOW OLD I WAS AND WHEN I REPLIED "24" SHE SAID, "OH THANK GOD BECAUSE WE HAVE WAY TO MANY MINORS RIGHT NOW, I AM 22 AND I AM THE OLDEST ONE HERE"..UHH ANOTHER RED FLAG. THERE WERE PLENTY MORE RED FLAGS THAT ARE UNNECEASSARY TO WRITE ON ABOUT...BUT SAFE TO SAY, I QUIT THE NEXT DAY. 

 

NOW, I WILL SAY, I DID THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT THIS. MY SISTER IS A TOP MANAGER AT PANDORA, THE JEWELRY COMPANY, AND I DID RECEIVE A LONG LECTURE ABOUT HOW MUCH A COMPANY SPENDS TO HIRE SOMEONE NEW AND THAT WOULD BE KIND OF MESSED UP OF ME TO QUIT, BUT SHE ALSO TOLD ME THAT I NEED TO LIKE WHERE I WORK AND SEE POTENTIAL IN MY FUTURE THERE AS WELL. SO IT'S OKAY TO BE PICKY PEOPLE!! ESPECIALLY AT MY AGE WHERE YOU WANT SOMETHING THAT WILL ACTUALLY HELP YOU ON YOUR RESUME. SO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD I WENT! I CHECK OUT LINKEDIN, INDEED, CRAIGSLIST YOU NAME IT I WAS APPLYING..AND WHEN I LEAST EXPECTED IT, I WAS INTERVIEWING FOR THE CUTEST LIL' BOUTIQUE IN HUNTINGTON BEACH AND ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO CHOOSE BETWEEN STARTING HERE AT A LOCAL, SMALL BUSINESS, OR NORDSTROM, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE. TO MY SURPRISE, I WENT WITH THE CUTE BOUTIQUE IN HUNTINGTON, LUNA B.

 

SO IF YOU'RE IN THE HUNTINGTON BEACH AREA, COME SHOP WITH ME!! IF NOT, YOU CAN SHOP ONLINE AT SHOPLUNAB.COM. I ALREADY AM LOVING IT AND FEEL LIKE I AM 100% IN THE RIGHT PLACE!!

 

ALSO, BACKTRACKING BECAUSE I AM NOT GOOD AT STORIES AND GET SO DISTRACTED..I GOT AN APARTMENT AFTER A WEEK OF BEING IN CALIFORNIA! IT IS THE CUTEST LIL' SPOT ABOUT 15 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE BEACH AND IT COULD NOT BE MORE PERFECT. 

 

THIS WHOLE MOVE TAUGHT ME SO MUCH. NOT ONLY DID IT MAKE ME 10x MORE INDEPENDENT, BUT IT TAUGHT ME PATIENCE AND THAT THINGS CAN'T ALWAYS BE "PLANNED". GOD WAS WITH ME THE ENTIRE STEP OF THE WAY AND HE KNEW WHERE I NEEDED TO BE. I HAVE TO THANK MY PARENTS FOR PICKING UP MY 500 PHONE CALLS A DAY OF ME EITHER CRYING OR BEING SOOO BORED LOL. I ALSO WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO THOSE OF YOU I HAVEN'T GOTTEN BACK TO!! I SWEAR I AM ALIVE AND DOING WELL AND AM GOING TO BE BETTER AT CALLING PEOPLE BACK! 

 

IF YOU MADE IT THIS FAR...YOU MUST BE A FAMILY MEMBER CAUSE WOW THIS WAS UNNECESSARILY LONG LOL. BUT THANK YOU FOR READING MY LITTLE LIFE UPDATE! MY BLOG HAS KIND OF BEEN ON THE BACK BURNER WITH THIS WHOLE MOVE BUT ONCE I GET A LIL' MORE SETTLED IN, I PLAN ON GETTING BACK UP AND RUNNING! 

 

LIFE AIN'T PERFECT PEOPLE, AND NEITHER AM I, BUT THANK GOODNESS THERE IS A GOD WHO IS WITH US EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!!

 

P.S. THE SHORTS I AM WEARING WILL BE UP FOR SALE SOON ALONG WITH PLENTY OF OTHERS I HAVE MADE MYSELF! SUPER EXCITED TO SHOW YOU GUYS SO STAY TUNED!! 

 

LOVE YOU ALL AND THANK YOU FOR THE ENDLESS SUPPORT!!

XOXO // P.
