Before & After



Cam has been quite busy around the apartment. Our recent (meaning September....) project was adding a back splash to our kitchen! here are the pictures.



Before




During



After



As you can see from these photo's we haven't finished putting the molding on top and below the cabinets. It is almost finished now! It feels like these last reno projects are taking the longest!
The bathroom is almost 100% finished, Cam just needs to build me a medicine cabinet and then some touch up painting!

Welcome to the world of employment

I got a real job!!!!
I started today! I got a position as a sales coordinater at a marketing/branding company. So basically all those mugs/pens/t-shirts/calculaters with companies logos that they hand out? I sell that. Basically anything you can think of, they can put a logo on!!
I am pretty excited about it all, I really like all the people I'll be working with it. It's a bit of a smaller company so it's important that I get along with my co-workers.
It was a really hard decision to make as I had always envisioned myself in the financial industry, so going into marketing and sales was unexpected. However i'm ready to join the world of employment!

Get a haircut, and get a real job

Those are the wise words that my older sister spoke to me on the phone today while I was telling her my frustrations about trying to find a job.

Just to clarify i'm not having any difficulties finding a 'job' those $12-$15/hr jobs seem to find me just fine, i've had plenty of those opportunities.... but a girl has gotta have some standards right?

As a recent university grad yeah maybe I did have a slightly skewed vision of what it would be like trying to find a job after I graduated. but honestly is it to much to ask for a full time job, that requires a little thought.... I mean, i'm not looking for a job that a high school drop out could do. I want one that challenges me, that I can use my skills and develop new ones.

Anyway this week has been a little depressing as my temp job for September ended and I thought i'd have a permanent position lined up by now.

On the plus side I do have a couple interviews lined up this week that I am really looking forward to... hopefully by next week I will re-enter the work force and once again be a contributing member of society!!!
