Updated Xia

It's 1:30 am, and I'm not even remotely sleepy (big problem since I have to work tomorrow morning). I'm hoping a little blogpost will help me relax enough to want to close my eyes.

So, here are a few things of interest to me:

1. I love waxing!! Back in the summer, SG and I decided to go half on a wax warmer, wax and strips (we live next door to each other, which makes it easy to borrow). I've always gone to get my eyebrows wax and actually been doing it myself for quite some time (microwaveable wax). Ever since I got my own warmer, I've been adventurous from waxing my bikini, to my arm pits, to my legs!! I just finished my legs (I only did the bottom; my thighs aren't a problem). It took me two hours, but I'm not use to doing it yet. My legs have always been a problem for me because I could shave in the morning and not have smooth legs at night (that's the European side of me I could give thanks to). Bye-Bye rough legs! Hello smoothies!

2. I got a second job! I put this as #2, not because waxing is more important, but because I'm still a little shocked about it (hence the no sleep part). While I waxed my hairy legs away, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I'm not sure if I'm excited about it (and believe me not in a bad way). It hasn't hit me. The new thing to add to my resume is Mortgage Specialist. I have a friend of mine that does this and is so great at it that they want to make him a branch manager. In order to do so, he needs to develop his own team. We actually hadn't spoken in awhile, but he asked one of my friends to contact me to see if I would be interested.

I met with him today and to my surprise my new coworkers were welcoming me to the office (nothing like a little pressure). I spoke with the branch manager and he seemed very friendly. One of my other friends started about two months ago and really likes it. He is in the same dilemma that I'm in because he hasn't left his other job. The company pays for your training and licensing, which means you need to come in on your own time and learn the tricks of the trade. He was very excited about the job and sees the potential. The friend who asked me to come is doing very well.

I took the job. It seems like something that I wouldn't mind doing. Once I get the hang of things and close on loans, I'll be able to quit my bartending job. If I can't find a decent job in my field, I need to branch out. I don't like sales, but I do it everyday. It's the same concept as a restaurant. People come to you. It's a win-win situation. Let's hope I like it and make plenty of money!

There you have it! Two new things going on with me. The latter being the most important. This is a big change for me. Wish me luck!
