Beautiful Jewelry by Natalia Araya

I like to enter giveaways when I stumble upon them. They make me feel like I'm supporting and interacting with fellow etsy shop owners. And, of course, I like free stuff.

I was pleasantly surprised when won this pendant a few weeks ago:

It came in the mail yesterday and I LOVE IT. It's even prettier in person. I want to wear it all the time. The artist has lots of other beautiful stuff in her shop too. Go check it out. I'm thinking about buying matching earrings. Looks like her little promotion worked on me. :)

I'm thinking about hosting my own giveaway sometime in the future. We shall see.

Man, I haven't posted in awhile. Time to blog!

I have been very busy lately, and I haven't had a whole lot of time to list new things in my shop. Hollister had me working every day at 7:00 am last week. By the time I got home I didn't have enough energy to do much more than sit in front of the TV. The cleanliness of the apartment suffered as a result. I was scheduled for a whopping 0 hours this week. Apparently signing up for "extra" hours results in hours being taken away later. I was a little mad at first, but it turned out to be a blessing. The apartment is well on its way to being completely clean and I've gotten a lot of things done.

The medical school application process is moving right along. Applying to two schools is a whole lot easier than applying to eleven just in case anyone was wondering.

I had an interview for a volunteer position at the hospital today. It sounds like I'm going to have a spot waiting for me as soon as I attend an orientation and get a TB test. My interviewer said I could start work as early as the 22nd. Hurray! Getting a volunteer job was a lot harder and took a lot longer than getting a paid job. Weird.

Umm... here are some new/relisted things in my shop I never posted:
