I’ve made it through my first week of the new job, and it’s safe to say things are going well. It was not at all natural to be back at work after three weeks off, meaning that a life of leisure is definitely something to which I could get accustomed. But, working girl for now I am once again.
I’ve also been cooking again, reading again…being the old version of myself that had been pushed away by the fast pace of Chicago life. I’ve been enjoying Ann Arbor [Little town, it’s a quiet village] so far, though I’m not much a fan of all the driving. For instance, yesterday I actually went to the movies! Mom and I went to see Beauty and the Beast and OMG you have to go if you even somewhat liked the original. I don’t want to say it’s better, since cartoons and live-action are apples and oranges, but likely you’ll leave wanting to 1) re-watch the original (which I did) and 2) go back to the theatre and see it again.

Ahh, to be a 90’s kid. Last night when I couldn’t get my B&tB DVD to play, my first instinct was to blow on it. And I did.
