08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hey guys.

I haven't forgotten about dA, I haven't left... I've just been painfully busy. I hated it. I was so miserable that whenever I was home, all I would do was sleep.

But I realized what the cause was and I took action. Unfortunately I am no longer employed at MINI (Cooper), but it was something I needed to do. Instead, I was able to find a job that was exactly what I'd been searching for. It's what I'm going to school for and it's also right next TO my school so I don't have to quit school to go to work.

I'm a Creative/Marketing Assistant. It's getting my foot through the door in my field (graphic designer/web developer). I'm loving the job so far, and the best part is... I get off at a reasonable time. I have a MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY schedule, oh my god. I forgot what those were like. I'm so stoked, you have no idea.

It's closer than my old job, so I'm saving on gas money. The job pays less than what I was making at MINI, but at the same time it's a stable paycheck and it's the field I've been trying to get into for years. It still pays the bills, so I'm not concerned. I don't need a whole lot of free money anyways.

But yes, this week has been the happiest I've been in months. My new job even has a gym, which I've been trying to utilize from time to time. It's so wonderful. My boyfriend is pretty happy too, since i'm not coming home and bitching about this or that. ;) Instead I have funny stories to tell about the antics that go on there daily!

I love it.
