It still hasn't hit me yet that next week I will be starting a new job. I don't really quite believe it yet I guess. Or maybe I just can't really imagine how much my life is going to change now.

With this new job, I will get home from work before 6pm. Before I was came home from work at 8:30. I get 2 and 1/2 hours of my day back!

With this new job, I will save almost $4,000 from not having to take the train anymore. That's a lot of money!

With this new job, I will be able to dress up a bit more. With all the walking I did in the city I always had to wear sneakers, because of my foot problems. Now I can wear sandals, flats and all sorts of shoes!! Which means I can wear pretty clothes again!

With this new job, I can actually have a social life. I've been living like a hermit for almost 3 years because of my job. I always got home so late that I barely had time to eat and shower before bed. Now I can go out for happy hour if I want.

With this new job, I am going to join a gym and actually go to it! Before I had this excuse that I had no time in the day to go work out. Now I have no more excuses and it's time for me to start getting healthy again.

For the past week I've been smiling non-stop and honestly I can't remember when that has happened. I'm just so happy. I'm not even really nervous about this new job, which is so unlike me. Usually I would be one huge ball of nerves, but I've been pretty calm about it.

I can't wait to start!!!

Congratulations on the new job! Especially enjoy the extra hours that it affords you. And not having to commute is so exciting, as is the ability to wear cute, but slightly impractical shoes. Yay!
