You Can Always Go Downtown + Mini Life Update


shirt: Old Navy (similar), shorts: F21 (similar), sandals: F21 (similar, these are cool, too!), ring: DIY, watch: thrifted, bag: F21

I wore this for dinner downtown. (That sounds so fancy!) I love these sequin shorts! It sounds crazy but they really go with everything. I can dress them way up or dress them down, kind of like I did here. They are a bit scratchy though, I’ll say that. But I’m willing to deal with that because SEQUINS.

That ring is my new favorite thing. I bought some white baking clay over a year ago and have been finding new things to make with it. So far I’ve made six or seven pairs of geo stud earrings, some geo magnets and a couple of rings. The other ring I made is shaped like a gaudy diamond. 😛 I love DIYing. (New verb.) I’ve had a lot of time to do that sort of thing while job hunting! Yay being a college graduate! 🙁

Hanging out downtown is a new adventure. I’ve never really been downtown and there are loads of new restaurants and shops to explore. The city has really done a great job of up keeping and developing that part of town. It’s always busy at night and there are smells and lights and sounds… I love cities. Even though Longview isn’t really a big city. 😉 It just makes me more excited to make the eventual move to Dallas!

+ Mini Life Update!

I’ve been job searching for about two months now and have nearly come up dry. My tentative plan is to find a full time job as a secretary or receptionist while saving money to move to Dallas, start a retirement fund, and/or buy a house. While I’m working I want to find how God would fit me into his plan for His worship passion He has set on my heart. I’ve applied for dozens of jobs but, even after following up more than once, companies and businesses will not reply. It. Is. Frustrating. Why post a position if you are not willing to respond to candidates? Sigh. So a couple of weeks ago I get a call from a lady in our church needing a babysitter for two days a week! I took the job for a temporary solution until I can find a full-time job. I’m seeing God’s hand moving in His plan for me but sometimes it’s hard to see the big picture. I’m staying faithful in prayer though and am confident I’ll see the fruits of that. I already have!

Happy Monday!
