The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Upfab five

1. I had a job interview on Monday. I haven’t heard back yet so I’m gonna assume I didn’t get it but I’m still holding out a little hope…

2. On Tuesday I took a road trip with my brother, sister-in-law, and their friend. We stopped in Concord on the way and had lunch at Olive Garden (I chose something from their “Lighter Italian Fare” menu… good job me), watched a commercial being filmed at Outdoor World, enjoyed some froyo, and played games at Dave & Buster’s. Then we continued on to Chapel Hill where we had dinner at Spanky’s before the Carolina vs. Wake Forest basketball game.

4. Wednesday was also my BFF Tessa’s birthday. She lives in Tampa so I couldn’t celebrate with her but I’m meeting her in Chicago in May. 🙂

5. Yesterday I got my student loan check in the mail, and bought my plane ticket to Greece! I will be spending September 21-30 in Athens, Santorini, and Mykonos. I booked an awesome place to stay in Athens yesterday too: City Circus Hostel.

As for the crappies this week…

I’ve been pretty depressed. Being on a budget and a diet means I am basically not leaving my house. I’ve been feeling really antisocial anyway so the plans I’ve had I’ve cancelled. I feel like I’m never going to find a job in a library and I’m wasting $50,000 on my master’s degree… Pity party for me!

  1. Hey, they’re hiring librarians (with library degrees only, more’s the pity for me) here in Seattle. So keep applying- something will happen for you soon! In the meantime, a little less social now with the promise of Greece later is totally worth it. I can’t wait to hear your stories and the see your pics from it! 😀

  2. I’ve been totally having a “pity party for me” kinda week too! We all have ’em at some point right?! And plus, a diet and a budget HAS to be one of the WORST combos ever right?! Stopping by from Happies and Crappies! Have a fabulous weekend!
