Autumn cleaning, job prospects, and more...

So, I've been tearing apart my closet and I set myself a new rule:

If I don't LOVE it, and it doesn't fit PERFECTLY-- out it goes.

I test the "fit" of something (i.e: pants) by putting them on and buttoning them, and then giving a little tug. If I'm able to pull the pants completely off without unbuttoning them? Out!

So I'm happy to report that this tactic has resulted in a huge pile of clothes that will be soon given to a friend of mine who has gained some baby-weight. And she in turn is giving me her old clothes. A new wardrobe for zero dollars?? Sounds awesome to me! I can't wait :)

I also went through my underwear drawer.. yikes! I had no idea I had so many bras/panties/pairs of tights that I absolutely HATE! Why do I keep them?! Out they go! (bye bye, hundreds of dollars worth of Victoria's Secret products...)

Oh my god, and... I tried on my high school, torn to bits, favorite EVER H&M jeans. Y'all know the ones I mean... and they FIT! For some reason, it didn't occur to me that since I dropped to a size 11, my highschool jeans might fit. But they DID. And I was so happy. But, unfortunately they are still ripped beyond wearing... otherwise, I'd live in them all over again!

I have a job interview today. It's for the portrait studio at Target, a job I have wanted (no lie) since 2002. I worked for Target as a cashier for 3 years, and during that time I ALWAYS lusted after working in the photo studio... but whenever I went to apply, they either weren't hiring, or it was only for seasonal work. But now, a good 7 years later, I have an interview!!! I am so stoked.

In other news, school totally sucks (I got a 56 on my Biology II test...the class average was a 65, and 11 students got a D. And yet, the teacher blames US.) but I'm pulling through. The Creative Writing class really is what gets me through the week!

Oh, and I somehow managed to eat an entire jar of peanut butter in a week. For some reason, ALL I want lately is peanut butter. I've been slathering it on bananas and apples like it's going out of style.

I dyed my hair a few days ago... I am officially a brunette again. It feels WEIRD after a good 5 years or so of being a redhead. It's as close as I could get to what (I think) my natural color is, so hopefully when it grows out, there won't be roots showing and I can stop with all this stupid expensive wasteful hair dyeing!

Off to get ready for my interview now. Everyone cross your fingers!!! I am so determined to get this one, it's not even funny.

ALL of my pants come right off of me without my unbuttoning them. If I did what you're doing I'd have a big problem! LOL

It's amazing that you're getting a new wardrobe for $0. Fashion show! :P
