Remember that time I got a job? I just finished week two, and it's been a good combination of stressful, busy, and awesome. I feel so good about my choices - to quit my old job in mid-summer, to take some time off before finding a new one... and to be picky in my job search, to find a company that is very me. (and, of course, I'm very fortunate to have ended up in a field where I can afford to be picky and still find work!)
Adjusting to work and to a new commute has certainly tired me out and kept me busy this week, but only in the best ways possible. I'm still getting used to things, but all signs point to this being such a great fit for me, different from my old job in all the right ways.
I did manage to snap a few photos throughout the week, mostly on my phone's extremely crappy camera.

A catering gig:
|I baked a cake for a friend who was hosting a party for another friend. Kinda like real catering!|
This is the practice run, kinda thrown together, but the final one looked a bit nicer.
