So There's That Series

So There’s That: Vol. 2

{Sort of like  a “Friday Five” except it’s probably not Friday and I gave up on the idea of a catchy alliteration. This is my# postgradlife.}

1. Blog Makeover

As you can see I did a little bit of a makeover on the blog this weekend. There is still one more section that is being finished. Be looking for that addition next week. What do you think about the new digs? What are some blog must-haves, and what do you like about other blogs that make them unique?

2. Leah is getting herself hitched!

One of my best friends announced her engagement this weekend. After knowing about it for the past two weeks, it was about all I could do to not freely jump for joy. Leah was my roommate in Smurthwaite Scholarship House my freshman year at K-State. She was the hippie and I was the country girl. But we bonded over our curly red hair, soft spots for a cheesy love song, love for flowers and plants, eating pickles and peanut butter, and adventuring through the many trials and memories of college together. She is one of the kindest, loving and humble girls that I know and I am over the moon that she has found someone to love her like she deserves. And I am honored to be standing up with her and Ryan next year when they say I do!

3. Professional reading
I read some interesting thoughts over the top five personality traits that employers look for on, which is a wonderful resource for new grads, seasoned employees and employers alike. I had the opportunity to write them a two years ago and made it a habit to see what they have to say on a regular basis.

This past week I read: Employers look for executive personality traits before hiring.

With a pretty comprehensive description for each trait I can personally identify which traits that I do well emulating and which ones that I need to work on. What do you think of their list? How do you work toward polishing these traits? Or, is there a more valuable personality trait you would rather see on the list?

4. My Fourth of July

My favorite holiday was a success! I got my starry night extravagant fireworks show that I always look forward to and earlier in the evening I added to my jams for the week at the Manhattan Municipal Band Independence Day concert that my roommate Kyla played in. Though the fireworks are always my favorite, the Armed Services Salute was played at the band concert, inviting servicemen and women to stand up when they heard their tune, stole the show. The college aged kid who helped his grandpa stand up out of his wheelchair put a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

5. Big Kid Business
Whelp, I guess that I am now really, really official now. My business cards came in today! AND since everyone in the office was about ready to reorder, I got to redesign them. Whatcha think? The back features a new project that we are working on that will launch at the end of July. Excuse me, while I do a little happy dance.


Yah, So There’s That.
