First of all, thank you to everyone who had pants suggestions. I did find a good pair at Macy’s, though not the Alfani. My saving grace turned out to be J-Jill. I said to the saleswoman, “Oh I don’t do straight leg, not with these hips” and she said “Try them, you’ll find that the difference is our clothes are designed for a woman’s body.” And she was right, I love them on me!

Anyway, so I guess I nailed the in person interview because I was offered the job later that day after they cleared it with the head of the company. So I’m moving from the Jersey Shore to southeastern Virginia! With my lease expiring in a week and a half, I have a week and a half to find a place to live or spend an extra $400 on storage with the moving company. So that’s fun!

And Mexador can’t request a transfer until after the holidays so I’m going to be setting off into a new state knowing no one. How do I make friends??

This job is a great opportunity and its doing what I want to do in life, but change is hard. I guess we'll see how it goes.
