Things I Like Thursday.


I have great news - I landed my first real job! I've been hired as a Media Specialist for a nonprofit organization here in Columbus. It's pretty much a marketing/PR position where I'll be doing a lot of writing and composing of promotional materials. I'm super excited because I've been stressing a lot about finding a job since graduation two months ago. Now I need to start looking into finding an apartment and buying a car, both of which I think will be incredibly fun. I'll be starting my new job in about a month, though, so I need to find a place to live and suitable transportation fairly quickly.


I'm really looking forward to decorating my new apartment and making it my own. I've been looking into interior design and have already started brainstorming decoration ideas and thinking about what kind of style I'm going to go for. Be on the lookout for pictures, as I'll be documenting every step of the nesting process as it transpires. :) Also, I'd like to thank you all again for your encouraging words and support during my job search. It definitely helped pull me through and I'm happy to share this good news with you all. And now here's this week's Things I Like Thursday roundup.
This really awesome slides funneling into the Meditteranean Sea off the coast of Siciliy

This honest print. Very true in my case, plus the curiosity/mystery of a voicemail gets to me.

This handy little device that converts unwated paper into pencils

This watermelon bicycle helmet

This really sweet slide staircase. If I had this on my house, I'd never take the stairs.

This unique shelving idea

These polar ice cubes

These recycled sweater pillows

Also, go enter my Pineapple Mint Vintage giveaway if you haven't already! Up for grabs is a $25 gift certificate to use as you please.

I think the paper to pencils machine is very neat and innovative. I think the idea of recycling and finding new uses for things is great! I'd love it if you could stop by my blog and view my "That's just not my thing... Thursdays" posts. I'd say they're the opposite of what you're doing here.

Congrats on the new job. Good luck on the apartment hunt. Btw, the number one reason to have an iphone is because you don't have to listen to the messages you can just delete them so that annoying red number will go away. :)

Woohoo! Well done - that's so good to hear (read)! So happy for you :)
Also, I need that slide/stair combo in my life. Can't wait until I win the lottery (should probably start playing it...!)
Congratulations again :)
