I Am No Longer a Temp

I sure am going to miss my job at Devry University and it hasn't really sunk in yet, but come tomorrow when I have nothing to do it will kick in. At first I am going to love it, but when there isn't as much money in my bank account is when I will worry...but I am sure that it wont suffer that much, since I am dedicated to finding a new job that suits my needs and wants at this time!!!
What I am going to miss at Devry is a mix of a few things....
1 - Peeking over my tall desk everyday to see who walked in the door

2- Oddly enough my annoying lanyard...which became sort of a security blanket for me...there hasn't been a day that I haven't worn it, besides occassional Saturdays and every Sunday. It was attached to me, even when I went over to friends houses after work.

3 - The candy jar...always full of delicious candy that I couldn't keep my hands is what made me gain an extra few pounds over the past few months hahahahaha just kidding, but oddly enough I had blast from the past moments everytime I ate nerds and bottle caps...oh the good'ol days when candy cost 3-5 cents for a pack of nerds or 15 cents for a jolly rancher stick...that could be an entirely different post on its own though lol

4 - Ocean Blue Frozen was my last time going for a while...Pistacio and banana were my favortite flavors

5 - My was always well organized and I loved working with 2 monitors! I wont however miss the phone that is on the right...we would get random calls from people and every once in a while I would get someone that was mad at a co-worker of mine who just loved to take their frustrations out on me. Plus after a while they started taping our conversations on the phone, so I could no longer speak to friends on the phone...blah blah blah

6 - the fun fountains and relaxing areas at Westgate. I would go down to these fountains every chance that I could get when I needed a break...I happened to have my nieces one day after work and they had a blast in the fountains.

7 - My boss and all my co-workers...they were the best people to work with and on my last day they gave me a card and a beautiful plant....I will miss them all.

All in all, the job will be missed, but I am looking forward to what the future has to bring me!!!!

Where is the L.O.V.E.

So yesterday became a grand day after this arrived early in the afternoon :)

Well, I was having a blaw day and was kinda tired and bored, really not wanting to be at work because it was so nice outside and to be honest I just wanted to be anywhere else, but work!!! But that all changed when my special guests arrived at my work place. The company and gift they brought made me wake up, but more importantly I felt loved.

Thank you Allison, Selena, Sam and made my day for sure!!!!!!!

By the way, I ate a few cookies beforehand by the time I took this have to give me credit for waiting atleast 20 mins after you all left, but it didnt stay a full bucket for long. I was really rumbly in my tummy and so were a few of my co-workers hahahaha. There are only a few more cookies left.

For the rest of the day I had the cookies sitting on my desk and everyone kept asking me about it and a ton asked me why it was addressed to "Bicky." For those of you who may not know, which I am sure that all that read my blog know this fact...but sweet little Sam calls me Bicky instead of Becky and I think it is the cutest thing!!! He sometimes will say Becky, but Bicky is used a ton more :) but the bucket started a trend and now everyone at work calls me Bicky :) it is only going to be shortlived for another week with my co-workers, but the name will still live on with the Barry family and especially Sam. You can tell that I was very happy and a little protective of my cookies at work!!!

I love all of you for your thoughtfullness and kindness!!! (wow I sound so korny...but it is true and I meant every word) Only one more week and we can party it up. I can't wait!!!
