New promotion!

So it finally happened I've been promoted for the first time in my life. So for the last almost year and a half I've been working at house 2 for Chrysalis and have loved every minute of it, especially the girls I work with and for. Anyway, a week ago our associate director asked the manager of my house to refer someone for a manager position for another house, and she chose me. So on Friday I had an interview and later that night she told me that I got the job and that my last day working with the house would be the upcoming sunday shift, which is a grave shift. Meaning I wont get to work with any of the girls on my last shift. I was/am really excited for this but got a little sad knowing that I'm pretty much done with that house but my manager talked her in to one more shift at our house since it is liz's birthday and we're having a big celebration. I'm having tons of mixed feelings about the whole thing really since the last time I was a manager my boss tore me apart. I'm sure this one will be different it's just a lot to take on though.

Sweet Sister Lizzy Sing Me a Sweet Song of Joy

Music has always been a really big part of my life, what with piano, voilin, singing, and dancing that I've been a part of. My family loves music as well so I've also grown up with it throughout my life. I've used it to escape the world, to express myself, to calm myself down, and to rejuvinate my spirit just to name a few. When ever Matt and I watch a movie he'll comment on how the music is so I've been noticing it a lot more myslef. I just finished watching Chronicles of Narnia the 2nd one and the song at the very end of the movie right before the credits is just unbelievable. It's called The Call by Regina Spektor and if you have a minute you should listen to it, it's at the beginning of my music playlist on my blog. There's also another song that just tickeled the ivory of my heart strings (sorry, working my grave) it's from the new movie Twilight and it's called Bella's Lullaby. This song is also on my music playlist and I just can't explain how much I love these songs. They make me want to cry and yet I feel really happy when I listen to them. Isn't music absolutely wonderful?
