Dear February

You are three days away, and you’ve got some big shoes to fill RE: January. You both fall in the year 2014, so you get a handicap in that you are in what is turning out to be a pretty fantastic year so far.

The promotion I wasn’t sure I was getting has come through and I will be starting the first day of your month, February. Let’s try to make it a smooth transition, as I would like to not be overly stressed out. I have to plan a market-wide party that launches in your month as well….so let’s hope that works out well!

I got a new car last week, and have assigned myself the role of poor field worker until it is paid off, which, while I signed a 72-month plan, will hopefully be about 3 years from now. The car purchase was horrible. I don’t know if there’s a way to make car buying not suck, but I do love my new car and utilizing every bit of pandora data streaming that I can. Also, because it is a Prius, I get awesome mileage.

You see that dress, February? It was free, and vintage, and I am in love with it. It belonged to my aunt and she said I could have it this month along with another dress that is also vintage…so February, I fully expect you to hook me up with some awesome free clothes as well! (JK, but seriously if you could do that I’d be ever so appreciative)

My friend picked out her wedding dress, a reminder that this year is the year of every marriage of everyone I know ever (it’s only three marriages but that’s more than the 1/year that typically trickles through). None of these marriages are in your month, but the bachelorette party is! This will either be super awkward since I decided to give up drinking, or super awesome because everyone will be happy to have an auto-designated driver. February, I’m depending on you to create the latter situation.

February, I have the utmost confidence in you. I know you can help make this year amazing, and I’m looking forward to working through you!!


I guess this is my way of saying that January has been pretty kickass. Promotion, new car, clothes, a generally happier outlook on life for the most part…but written in a very bratty way. I am happy right now! Happy to be getting new experiences and feeling like I’m a bit closer to being a full-blown adult. Also, checklist from breakup: Get a career…I’m not quite checking this off yet but I truly feel this is heading somewhere and I couldn’t be more excited. Financially Stable: Well, no…but I think paying for a new car is going to help quite aĀ  bit. I am already so paranoid about not having money that it has been super easy to say no to everything except friends! I am a sucker for my friends and dinners out. My mom also got hired for the job she applied for as well, both of us starting the same week. It is crazy! 2014 is shaping up to be pretty sweet IMO šŸ˜€
