The 'Real" New Kid on the Block

I started a new job today.

I forgot just how frightening the first day of a new job can be! Feeling the pressure of doing my best, however not knowing expectations and therefore not knowing what my 'best' is in this particular organization. Meeting new people and forgetting their names instantly. Feeling lonely and out of place. Just many emotions going on at the same time.

I hope this works out. This is a brand new environment for me and to tell the truth, I'm absolutely terrified. Today involved learning and absorbing, tomorrow I hope it's more than that or else I could get bored very quickly. I hope I fit in soon. I just worry so much mainly because this is very important to me.

New jobs can be exhausting (emotionally mainly), I just have to stay positive and good things will come!

Mosquito Mayhem

The buzz isn't quite the same effect I get from half a bottle of Chardonnay.

We stayed at a friends cottage this past weekend and had such a great time. I'll admit, I'm not a 'cottage person'. My ideal weekend getaway would usually consist of going somewhere nice but being able to dress up, go out and of course shower! Regardless, this was my friends cottage, I'm comfortable enough to look dirty and smell of layers of sweat, sunscreen and bug spray for a few days. I can show my whiney side when I have to go into the lake (I hate water) and can freak out when I see a spider or have a mosquito try and eat me for dinner. She won't judge me (I hope?).

It's funny how fine I am with the Mosquito bites when I'm there, but the minute I get home the pesky itchiness just won't quit. I'm at my desk right now scratching my bites. I'd rather them hurt than itch. What a horrible feeling. And honestly, where have those stingers been before biting me? I don't like to think about it but you just never know! Hopefully the uncomfortable feeling will go away soon. Then I may be ready to do it all over again...this time I'll be buying many different brands of bugspray...and a net!

Lindsay's family is denying the rumours but sometimes rumours have truth to them. What do you think?

Great Designer Passes Away

Legendary fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent has died at the age of 71.

After a long battle with brain cancer, the designer passed away at his home Sunday night. The fashion world will truly miss the influential fashion icon, who, along with Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, helped make Paris the ‘Fashion Capital of the World.”

Yves Saint Laurent was well known for helping women reach the peak of confidence with fashion. He gave women the empowerment with his authentic designs, namely reinventing women's pants as a fashionable and chic staple.

Pierre Berger, Saint Laurent’s close friend has been quoted as saying “Chanel gave women freedom and Saint Laurent gave them the power”. This influential fashion designer will truly be missed not only among the fashion world but also many women who wore his label. Let the legend live on!

I'm suffering from 'fear of change syndrome'

It's true. I'm secretly suffering from 'fear of change'.

This syndrome can affect the ability to move on to greater and happier things and prevent you from enjoying a fulfilling life. I don't know when the symptoms first appeared for me but it seemed to hit me when I least expected it. One minute I was accepting of change, moving to the 'big city' and the next I'm terrified of my own shadow.

The only cure for 'fear of change' is well, change! I'm taking on a new job less than four months before my wedding. Lets hope this works out for me and my fiance. I mention fiance because the poor guy will be the one suffering with me if anything happens;) He's definitely been my sounding board. When I'm on an emotional roller coaster so is he! I can't wait to see how he'll be when I'm someday in labour. *giggles*
