diplomas and jettas and mad men? i guess it’s been a good month…

June 23, 2010

So remember when I used to write about my life and share it publicly and all that good stuff?

Yeah, that was good times.

Turns out I’m boring now. Or something like that. I just don’t have a lot to say at the moment, and I don’t feel like forcing trite updates and drivel upon you. Instead, I just accumulate the few interesting things that happen to me and share them all at once.

So, in the last month I have done the following:

1. Graduated from college.

2. Said goodbye to my favorite people and my roommates.

3. Moved home with my parents, where I proceeded to watch all three seasons of Mad Men and now I can’t wait for the 4th season to start because I drank the stupid Mad Men kool-aid. Or whiskey. Or vodka. Or whatever the hell kind of alcohol they’re consuming on that show.

4. Got a badass graduation present. And yes, I know I’m spoiled.

5. Thought about blogging and then decided against it. Until now, I suppose.

You see, here’s the thing. My life is slow right now, yes, but it’s also in limbo. I’m still doing the job search thing, which is such an emotional roller coaster. Part of me wants to just kick and scream about how tired I am, but the rational part of me knows that I’m definitely not the only one feeling this way and something will work out for me.

Or, as my dad says, I’m not going to be jobless forever!

Very comforting.

So that’s my life! Please tell me yours has been more interesting?

Yay for graduating and getting a bad-ass graduation present!

You’ll find a job soon!!

SUCH a great graduation present, I’m loving it! And thanks my dear :)


Jessica June 23, 2010 at 8:41 pm

Wait, your parents GAVE you that car? Are you serious? You ARE spoiled ;) It’s a hot car though.


Jenn June 25, 2010 at 10:47 am

Umm… yeah. Spoiled to the MAX. There’s not a chance in the world I’d be able to afford that car on my own hahaha

1) Congratulations! Graduating is kind of a big deal.
2) Remember that your friends never really leave you, at least not the good ones anyway.
3) It ain’t easy, but it beats paying rent. Also, Mad Men is RIDICULOUS. AMC has proven to me that they know how to write excellent dramas. Check out Breaking Bad. I dare say it’s BETTER than Mad Men.
4) Nice wheels!
5) I was thinking about commenting, and then I did…so…yes. Nice post!

So I really like Mad Men, minus all the infidelity and cheating on the wives thing. And I know it’s a sign of the times back then, but I wish there were stronger female characters. I need more Joan Holloway in my life!

I’ll definitely try Breaking Bad next, thanks for the rec!


Paula June 24, 2010 at 3:31 am

Congrats on graduating!

Apart from a blogger meet-up weekend in Edinburgh and a business trip to London, my life has been pretty boring. I haven’t even been getting drunk as much as usual – sob – stupid trying-to-be-healthy!


Jenn June 25, 2010 at 10:49 am

Ummm a blogger meet-up in Edinburgh and a business trip to London sounds SO EXCITING! I spent a weekend in London once but have never been to Edinburgh — take me with you next time! And yes, being healthy sucks, which is why I’ve stopped that nonsense. Bring on the burgers and beer!


Heather June 24, 2010 at 10:05 am

Gongrats on graduating and getting a kick ass present. Woot! As for the job thing, don’t give up. It will come. Just keep your head up and keep swimmin’ :-)

Thanks dear :) It’s always a good reminder that SOMETHING will come along. And honestly, I’ve only been out of school for a month, haha, so it’s not like I’ve been at this for months. I just got tired of it easily!


Laura June 24, 2010 at 1:09 pm

You’re totally right — I’m definitely not holding out for my dream job but as long as I have SOMETHING that will help me get there, I’ll be happy!


Doniree June 24, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Congratulations! And you are totally spoiled :) But I’m still jealous.

There you are! I was wondering when you’d write again, lover.

Guess what I got B for our anniversary? Mad Men scotch glasses. Platinum rimmed.

BALLER. I know.

Congratulations on graduating!!!! :) Your parents must have been really proud of you to buy you a car! ;) Just kidding. Have you named your car yet?


Sid July 5, 2010 at 10:11 am

Your parents bought you a car? Fuck. I’m STILL busy paying off mine.

Congrats on graduating.

Nothing interesting happening back here in SA. Oh wait we’re hosting the World Cup and CT is currently flooded with tourists. Been watching non-stop soccer. It’s awesome.
