Just thought I would check in and let you all know how I've been lately with the new job and such!
Needless to say, working from 8 am to 5 or 6 pm has been pretty exhausting. I've had to get up and leave by 7 am in the sometimes 5 degree weather and I usually don't get home until 7ish in the evening.

That's my only complaint though because I'm really starting to feel comfortable at the job and getting along well with my co-workers. I'm definitely learning a lot every day and only hope to learn more so I can be as efficient as everyone else.
Getting up so early has turned me into an old lady though and I've been falling asleep by 10 o'clock pretty routinely. I can't even make it through movies anymore, although we watched Life of Pi the other day (at a reasonable hour) and it was really good! I read the book and really enjoyed it, and I have to say they did a great job with the film. It was very emotional and captivating and very well done.
Today was my first full day off in a while since I've also been working at Urban on the weekends, and it was really enjoyable. Guillermo and I went to MIT for a workshop he has been taking part in, and while he was there I killed time at the MIT book store and found a new book with a pretty cover.
I also walked around campus a bit; I never miss a chance to see some famous architecture.

When he got out, we took the bus up to Harvard and walked around campus and the surrounding shopping area. I found Anthropologie and pointed out a few things I've had my eye on for a while. Maybe one day I will break down and buy them. I absolutely love this vase and this candle; I think my love of candles is coming back from when I was in middle school and high school. I've started collecting them here and there since my mom sent me one for Christmas, and Capri Blue candles seem to be everywhere lately. I've only heard great things about them and I'm addicted to all things glass so I want one in every color!
It was a wonderful, relaxing day and now I'm curled up with tea and a movie. Hope you all enjoyed your day as much as I did!
