Bookish & Not-So-Bookish Thoughts

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they've encountered during the week, etc.). 
1) I heard on the radio yesterday that people who are happy in their jobs typically earn 25% more...well, that explains things then doesn't it? 

2) Pretty soon I may need to sign up for a "self-esteem" class...especially as I apply for jobs and get no response. Even though I know that Disney (mostly where I'm applying) promotes 80% from within and that they likely post the positions externally as a legal requirement but already have a candidate identified for the position. #CantHelpIt #TotalDrag

3) I am so happy to report that I am a Momentum Jewelry Ambassador! They make adorable and inspirational jewelry with a focus on fitness. I especially love their wrap bracelets. I am also on-board with them as a Expo Representative so last Saturday I spent the day in Chattanooga selling jewelry, which was a blast. I have another Expo coming up in Nashville too. 

4) Here are two of the wraps I already own...there's one more too...just haven't gotten a picture of it yet. They are so fun and comfortable!!

5) I've never been a "crazy" Star Wars junkie though I did watch the movies and enjoy them as a kid...the original 3...not those awful ones that came out later. Ethan is going to turn us all into Star Wars junkies before it's over though...having not seen any of the movies, he is choosing to be Kylo Ren (villian!) for Halloween and is all about seeing the movie in December. Looks like we will be going to Target to buy the Trilogy so we can refresh our memories and so Ethan can see them for the first time. 

6) I pulled my hamstring on Sunday morning...running of course. I walked on Monday, did next to nothing on Tuesday and tried to run on Wednesday. I was feeling good and was excited to get back to training. After about the 5th step, the hamstring quickly told me it was just not ready for this running nonsense. Ugh! I headed over to the elliptical machine where I spent the next 40 minutes. Does anyone else's foot/feet fall asleep while they are on the elliptical? Totally frustrating!

7) Two-faced (or more) people are the pits. Why do cliques exist among 40ish year old women? #seriously #wth

8) Hoping for a very festive Fall weekend....pumpkin patch here we come!!

9) Minecraft will be the end of me...especially the YouTube videos that some crazy bored people make and post. Why is it more fun to watch those videos than actually play the game? I guess if I were a 7yo boy I would know the answer. Or not.

10) Miracle! I finished a book...finished reading "After You" yesterday. I have mixed feelings about it. It wasn't as good as the "Me Before You"...and since I don't want to spoil it, I'll just say it was a bit sloppy but I was still glad I read it.

So I just found your blog because you changed the web address. If I told you how I found it, I'd appear stalkerish. So I won't tell you. Am I reading that right, that you're applying for jobs at Disney? Is it to counsel all the little children who come in and are paralyzed by fright from the costumes? Oh, that's only my child.
