Shopping

I headed out to the mall today with a friend who needed to buy shoes, and while there, realized one very important thing: very shortly, I have to dress myself every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!v EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK. For the last few years, my wardrobe consists of jeans, t-shirts, the occasional dressy dress, and the appropriate club attire for those nights that I need it. Now I need suits, skirts and other office appropriate wear. Now, for most women I can imagine this would bring on feelings of excitement "ooooo shopping" not me. I am thinking "oooo too much money, too much time" yeah not so much. just thoughts though. so far I have gotten a couple of replies to my resume submissions, though right now it isn't in the "oh damn I need a job now" category. I find it interesting to think about going to work every day, doing what I do now, outside the military in a whole new world. It's a big new world, and I have been spoiled the last 5 years.

It's okay. Just take a few deep breaths.

Depending on what kind of job you get, you may not need to spring for the entire professional wardrobe in one feel swoop.

I know I recently saw a book in the Wiesbaden Bookmark whose title made the claim that all women need is three black skirts.

I have no idea if that's true or not.
