What I learnt this week...

That following your "gut instinct" pays off - I got a call on Monday offering me the job I had been holding out for. From January I will be working full time at the Department of Justice and Community Safety and I really cannot be anymore excited and glad I didn't accept the other job just because it came along first.

Reunions are funny little social events that can remind you of how far you have come, or where you need to go. Our 5 year school reunion was held on Saturday night and it was really interesting to see the interactions after 5 years apart. There was the initial excitement and hugs as you saw old friends and classmates but by the end of the night everyone was just hanging out with the people that they had already been keeping in contact with. I guess it just shows how much we enjoy being in our comfort zone.

October is going to have to be renamed "Worktober". Too many assignments that need to be handed in at the end of the month and not enough time to get them done, I am trying to comfort myself by saying that it always seems to work out in the end.

Is it just me or has this year flown by? I cant believe that it is less then 3 months till Christmas! Not that I am complaining - Spring is nice but I am a Summer girl at heart and cannot wait for the hot weather.

I have 200 blog friends! I was so excited to see this when I turned on the computer this morning. Thanks for being here! I am planning a giveaway to coincide with my blog birthday in a couple of weeks.

    We were supposed to have a reunion for our 5 years but it didn't happen. It would be interesting if we have one for our 10 years (how scary).

  11. Hi Megan,
    Hope you are doing well. Just a note to say I finally posted your pics on the flickr group for the Photo Swap. It took me a little longer as I received your package right after I had my appendix removed so I have been recovering from surgery.
