Goodbye Atlanta...

and Hello Seattle!

Sorry for my absence in the last couple of months, I was very busy with panel finals as well as going through a very intense placement process. I thought the first few months of my training was hard, but then once we got to placement time and it's just like:

Thank you to all of you who made suggestions as to what location is the most awesome. I ended up choosing Seattle because it rains here (lol) and the position I'm in AMAZING! 

I just landed on Wednesday and dropped by my office on Thursday to meet the team. I started my first day officially today. :)

So far I LOVE the people I work with and the people in Seattle in general are just sooo nice! 

I live the Bellevue area, so for those who live around here and want to meet up, just leave me a comment and hopefully we can work something out. :)

Sounds like you made a GREAT decision on Seattle! When you get some free time to relax you should head up to Vancouver, Canada! It's my hometown and there's a ton to do/eat/buy! lol

Congrats on the big move! I love Seattle and so glad you chose the Emerald City. It's absolutely lovely up there! I'm hoping to move back myself as I'm currently in Phoenix. Hopefully not for long as I do miss the rain!

Welcome to Seattle!! I live a few miles away from Bellevue and LOVE it here. you're gonna have the best time here, Seattle summers are so nice and the scenery is incredible :)

Elisha said...

That's amazing! I live in Walla Walla Wa, haha. It's a bit far but it would be cool to travel for a meet up:)

I have a question for you. I'm making my first high-end department store purchases tomorrow and I also wanted to pick up samples, and I'm definitely not a sample whore- but I really want to justify spending my hard earned money on products that will actually work. How can I ask for a sample without them assuming I just want free stuff? Your advice would be greatly appreciated!
