Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. -Theodore Roosevelt
Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.
-Booker T. Washington
It's a shame that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day is work. He can't eat for eight hours; he can't drink for eight hours; he can't make love for eight hours. The only thing a man can do for eight hours is work. -William Faulkner
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. -Thomas A. Edison
So what is with all the quotes about work, huh? Well, I will tell you.
Right now, work is kind of ruling my life. I am working two jobs right now. I have been hired on full-time at Natural State Chiropractor and am continuing to work at the retail store that I worked at this summer until my boss can hire on some more people. This means my weeks have been 40+ hours of work every week.
However, I am not complaining. I am enjoying it. I like to have a purpose and every day I get to help people. I feel needed at both places and this is essential for me to do good work. The chiropractor is a practice that is growing here in Little Rock and I am so pleased to be a part of team that wants me to help figure out how to continue this growth.
But dear friends, this is why I have slacked so much at writing. This post was only made because for some reason my body did not want to sleep this morning. I woke up at 3:30am and then again at 4:30am, laid in bed until 5:00am. and then decided to wake up, go to Starbucks and do some work and also, finally write.
Once again, I am so thankful for Starbucks. Thank you Jesus. :)
However, in addition to work and when I have a second to spare, these are the things I have been doing:
Shopping (sooo not normal but it has been necessary)
Here are some recent purchases:
And, apparently I have been very into grey and black. The clothes are from the one and only amazing Anthropologie and the shoes are from Bakers. (and they are not as skanky as they look. promise.)
Baking here and there, some turn outs much better than others. More details later hopefully. :)
Playing with this beautiful, baby girl who is already almost 8 months!!
Watching these guys play!! Finally the season is here!!
DVR-ing and watching this show Saturday mornings:
The Pioneer Woman! I know, everyone loves her. And if you don't, you should.
And with the addition of allowing myself some social life, you can only imagine how often I am frequenting this place to keep up. :)
So much more to share, but so little time. (and insert Mary Kate and Ashley's "So Little Time" show theme song)
Now off to work! Have a great Wednesday!
