Thumbs up: Got a job!
Thumbs down: Less pay than I hoped for, and only part time.
Thumbs up: I could be able to transfer to a full-time position in the company in the next 6 months or so.
Thumbs up: I qualify for benefits! (kind of more of a thumbs neutral thing, since I have another 3 years of eligibility under my parents' insurance, but hey--vacation days)
Thumbs down: I'm getting married in 4 months (holy crap!) and couldn't support us on a part time job...so if I don't have a full-time gig by then I either take the hit in my savings for a few months, hoping that one comes along soon, or move in with family (not high on priority list)....
Thumbs up: Got a job!
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Thumbs up: We're buying a new (used) car!
Thumbs down: We're buying a new (used) car! I'm nervous about this kind of huge decision!

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Thumbs Up: I have a job that pays well enough for me to survive and I love it most of the time. So thankful for that, always.

Thumbs Down: My schedule hasn't been steady for the past month, at least, and it's a bit confusing and frustrating for trying to make even simple plans.
Thumbs Down: zero and I were going to finally, properly celebrate his birthday (from two weeks ago) this Saturday. I'm now working it.
Thumbs Down: He'll be gone for the two weekends I'm currently scheduled to have off in October.

Thumbs Up: I have a job that pays well enough for me to survive and I love it most of the time.

Thumbs Down: But not all the times it takes me away from zero on weekends and evenings.

Thumbs Up: First real period in 4 months! This is kind of the best news.

Thumbs Down: 29-book book list from one of my summer courses; told to start reading/read ahead...a month before classes start.

Thumbs...Sideways: At least temporary good news regarding HR issue. Could be an issue down the road but it seems to be taken care of for now.

Thumbs Up: I got a few new bras this weekend! It was well past needed and embarrassingly too long since I last went.
Thumbs Down: Bra shopping is frustrating and a real kick to my self-esteem. Not because of my bra size. Because I've gained so much weight everywhere else. Those lights are made to shame the hell out of people, I just know it.
Thumbs Up: They're pretty damn comfortable. And zero helped, which made it all more bearable.
Thumbs Down: Still. My self-esteem.
