First thing's first, four days after my last post I was offered a full time job at one of the newspapers I had been freelancing for. I started on September 29 and it has been a whirlwind ever since, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have gotten to write about both the redundant, the exciting and everything in between. Some of which have led to amazing experiences that I would not otherwise have been allowed (see new endeavors).
In celebration of my first 'Big Girl' job, I was allowed to use part of my first two paychecks on my this little beauty. Hello Lover!
I love it and it's quite possibly the absolute LAST time I will spend that much $$ on myself. But it's pretty...
On to the new endeavors, one of my first stories for the newspaper was on a woodshop program at a local middle school that builds electric guitars as part of their curriculum. As a thank you for writing the story, the teacher asked me to come in on weekends and build my own guitar. For the last three weeks, I have been drilling, sawing, routing and sanding my very own Les Paul electric guitar with my dad (it's his Christmas present). I'll post pictures as soon as their uploaded, but next weekend we start the painting process. Check out www.woodshoprocks.com to see more on what I'm doing.
Sorry this isn't more of an exciting post, I promise to do better in the future....hopefully
