I don’t know if you all knew but I was an officer in the Navy for six years. As of 28 June I am not. So I have incredible whiplash from six years of being run ragged but it is rather nice to be a civilian again. BUT this all means I need a job and I THINK I have a job in DC lined up (yay!) but it’s contingent on the company having room for me. It SHOULD be a go (but keep your fingers crossed just in case). I’ll know beginning of August and will start work August 26th. So I’ve been trying to find an apartment which I think I found today. But it’s tiny compared to what I’m used to so I have to dramatically downsize. And I have school work to do at the same time. I’m raaaaather stressed. And panicky. And excited.
In the meantime, I’m rewarding myself for a job well done by making my favorite outfit in all of 18th century art.
