Towards the end of 2021, I decided it was time to quit my job. I wasn’t progressing in my career, wasn’t doing what I was most passionate about, and just felt ready to move on. I didn’t have a plan, I just knew I wanted to get out of there and move onto something that was more relevant to me.
I started a new position at an agency in December 2021, and while it seemed like the perfect match for me for the first few weeks, unfortunately it didn’t end up being the right fit. I really enjoyed the work I was doing and the clients I was working with, but there were a few cultural issues I experienced. I was becoming super anxious and dreaded waking up each morning to log into my computer. I felt like I failed since I was thinking of leaving so soon after starting, but after writing out the issues I was having and talking things through with my family, I realized it would be better for me to leave now than keep dragging it on. So a short 4 months after I started at this new company, I was already out.
September is one of my favorite months, because that means fall is here! Hooray for fall! *grabs my PSL, Uggs and sits in a pile of leaves*
We went to multiple weddings, looking as fabulous as ever.
Went to Duluth twice, and was very let down when the hot air balloon festival was canceled.
Celebrated our 1 year anniversary!😍
My dad didn’t get swept away by a hurricane (this could probably be a recurring event).
Visited more breweries because Wisconsin (this is definitely a recurring event).
Tony and I got to drive two very fabulous, very expensive cars to an airport hanger.
I started full time, not intern status!
Tony started his new job as a service advisor at the luxury dealership and hangs out with rich people all day.
As per usual, I took fancy hipster coffee pictures.
It was national drink beer day and national coffee day, and I absolutely participated in both. 🍻 ☕️
Toms had a warehouse sale and I got so excited that I went two days in a row.
There’s only 3 months left of 2016 and I don’t really know what to do with myself. I’m looking forward to finally doing fall activities like pumpkin patches and apple orchards and I’ve already started drinking all the pumpkin spice things!
August is a weird month, because I always feel like I should be taking part in the back to school hype. Even though this is the second year I won’t be heading back to school, it still feels unreal to me. Plus, I definitely still haven’t figured out how to adult yet. But I have gotten pretty good at writing month in review blogs, so I’ll just stick with that.
My mom and dad both had birthdays and turned…so young. (Right guys?)
There were so many events at work, mostly for Subaru.
I went to the Minnesota State Fair for the first time!
And the biggest news of all…Tony and I were BOTH offered full time jobs at Morrie’s. I’ll be the events coordinator at corporate and Tony will be the service writer at Luxury. Funny how things work out.
May is a fantastic month, and I’m not just saying that because it’s the birth month of myself. There are many things happening next month, and I wanted to keep everyone in the loop! For your convenience, I have put together a blog post of FAQs I have been receiving about what the goings on are.
Q: New goings on, Lauren?
A: Yes! New job, new place to live, new cats to adopt! (See Tony, now I wrote about it, so it has to happen.)
Q: Who will you be working for?
A: Morrie’s Automotive based out of Minnetonka.
Q: What will you be doing?
A: I’m a marketing events intern, which means I’ll be helping prepare, set up and carry the events out. I’ll also help with their social media and blogs. (Check them out here and here and here.) I’ll be surrounded by beautiful vehicles while I try my hardest not to drool on them.
Q: Where will you be living?
A: For the month of May, I’ll be moving into Tony’s house in Woodbury. In June we’ll move closer to the cities. We haven’t 100% decided on where yet.
Q: Will you share a ridiculous number of pictures on Instagram to make me jealous?
