Randomapalooza Vol. 5

I have 600+ Sephora points that I really need to redeem for a full-size product. I've purposely been avoiding it but I need to go in there for the Urban Decay liners. Officially found out this week that I did not get the job I really wanted. I had prepared myself for that since it took them so long to get back to me but it still stung. A lot. I am not used to not getting what I want. Call me spoiled or privileged or whatever...but I generally don't deal with rejection when it comes to work or education.

So because I was not the chosen one for that job, I'm back to my nationwide job hunt. Initially I was just looking in the Twin Cities, because I do really love it here & I would like to stay, but now it's more important that I leave this position than it is that I stay here. So I'm back to my old list of cities/areas to live in, which is Chicago, Philly/NJ, DMV, Charlotte, RTP, Dallas and Houston. Would I stay here? Absolutely, and that's my first choice. But I'd rather be doing something else in another city, than still in this job in Minneapolis & miserable.

I fell in love with a beautiful red military coat at Marshall's a few weeks ago. Only they didn't have my size! The size they had was too small for me, so I couldn't button it. So I have 2 options - starve myself so I can fit in the coat, or hunt all over the Twin Cities & hope a store has it in a bigger size.

I finally got a new iPod #yay. Originally I was going to get a iPod Touch but now that I'm planning to get an iPhone #dontjudgeme I got a 160GB Classic instead.

I'm being followed by @KetelOne now on Twitter - I find this amusing considering how much I tweet about Ketel One.

This week was both National Taco Day & National Vodka Day, on the same day. I did my part.

Next week will be 2 months :grin:

Have you been on my Tumblr? http://fabrandomness.tumblr.com - follow it post-haste.

Minneapolis weather has been so crazy lately. It got cold like around Labor Day & I was sure that fall was coming early. For the past week, its been in the 80's #WTF. Granted I'm happy it hasn't snowed yet...but I got a closet full of sweaters & some new boots I'd like to debut. And I turned off my AC & then had to turn it back on #wack.

I really feel like I'm going to end up moving again. Don't ask me why, I just think so.

I go home in a few weeks for my mom's 50th birthday. I haven't been home since my nieces' birthdays in April. Can't wait to see the family & a few friends.

I've decided - I'm really going to loc my hair. I'm going to go with microsized locs. I need to schedule my consultation.

I bought another Nooka watch, Gilt had another sale. I was supposed to be on watch restriction!

Oh & I'm getting an iPhone...

Lately I've taken back a lot of "I would never..." statements.

I didn't realize how stupid people were until I joined Twitter. I am amazed at the level of willful ignorance.

This week has been an epic week of concerts - Eric Roberson, Wale, Lalah Hathaway, Esperanza Spalding & Van Hunt. I made it to every show expect Esperanza, & Van Hunt is this Saturday. Pics & reviews coming soon, I've just been lazy.
