superstitions + a giveaway to blow your mind


helene had this as a topic in her blogtober14 challenge, but once again, i am late to the party.  oh well.

i have a lot of superstitions.  for example...

  • whenever salt spills, i HAVE to throw some over my right shoulder.  as a waitress for 4+ years, if i was cleaning up a table and knocked over the salt, i threw it over my right shoulder every time, resulting in very strange looks.  but i have too!! 
  • i am also very superstitious about jinxing things.  if i say something that i want to happen, i always ALWAYS knock on wood.  every time.  i joke that i wish i had a peg leg so i would never have to search for wood every time i need to knock on it.  because this happens at least 2x a day.  i'm weird.  
  • i don't, however, have any lucky pennies or lucky shirts or lucky anything.  i also don't believe in if a black cat crosses your path, you'll have bad luck, or if you walk under a ladder you'll have bad luck.  for me, it's just the knocking on wood and the salt.  the an absurd degree.  like i said, i'm weird.

and now i know you are waiting with bated breath to hear about how my first day at my new job went!! i was  nervous to return to work after 3 months away, but it felt GREAT!! i felt so good about myself, so good about putting in a hard day's work, accomplishing something.  everyone was really nice and took me to lunch, i had a lot of good ideas that were well received, i learned a lot and it was just a great day!! i like the company and the people i work with so far seem nice.  i am so happy to be there and it went really well!!

i was worried that i wouldn't get to write as much as i wanted to, but it turns out that won't be an issue!! i will get to write lots of blog posts and i can't wait to get started, get my hands dirty and really contribute!! i am baaaaack!
