You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

You just never know…

…what little thing is going to change the course of someone’s life forever. I talked to a friend of mine the other day who I haven’t talked to in years. We got all caught up on each others lives and since such a huge part of my life for the last year and a half or so was being an Au Pair I of course told her all about it. As most of you know it was an absolutely amazing experience for me (you can read about my adventures at My Life as an Au Pair ) and so of course I was very excited about it and when she showed interest I encouraged her to look into it. I directed her to GreatAu and didn’t think much else about it.

Then, a couple days ago, I got a phone call from her saying that she’d already gotten several phone calls from interested families and she wanted to ask me some more technical questions about how to choose a family and what questions she should ask etc. and today I got a message from her saying that she’s going down to Florida to visit the family that she’s probably going to end up working for! Wow! From what she’s told me it sounds like a really neat family so I really hope that it works out well for her.

Anyway, I’m excited. Both for her opportunity and the fact that I kind of opened it up to her. Just goes to show you can have a bigger influence on people than you’d ever dream possible. *smile*

Raging Inferno

Twenty candles….geeze I feel old! lol.

Ok there’s the real one. I may be “old” but I still get mistaken for a fifteen year old on a regular basis.

Teenager no more

Yesterday I passed from being a teenager into the world of “twenty somethings”. Craziness! lol. It was a good birthday, my mom took me shopping for some clothes (I made out like a bandit by the way. Two pairs of jeans and three shirts for under $50!)

Then in the evening Joel took me out to eat in Chicago and we went to the “invitation only” premiere of Pericles at the Goodman theater. It was amazingly well done. It was also really interesting being in a theater where everyone knew everyone else. Being invitation only it was full of different critics, actors, directors ect. from all over the Chicago area. So, there was a lot of waving from across the theater and talking and laughing that doesn’t normally go on during your average show. We got tickets because Joel’s dad works at the Goodman so he gave us the hookup, hehe.

Anyway, it was a good birthday and tonight I’ll be having dinner with my immediate family since it’s my “birthday week”, woo hoo! Thank you to everyone who called and sent me cards and everything, it really helped make my birthday a special day. *big smile*
