Three things that make me happy

I am positively giddy.
So many reasons, really.

First and foremost, I start a new job in two weeks.

It's not that my current job is inherently a "bad" job, exactly; it's just that I was not built to be a debt collector. Nothing against the people who like working there, but it wasn't my thing.

Also, my current job is a twenty-minute commute, give or take; I always feel the need to leave my house before 6:15 even though my shift doesn't start until 7:00.

This new job requires me to commute a full 3.7 miles from my front door (unbearable, I know)!! Plus, no freeways. Which means no trucks. And less fog frustration.

Secondly, I think I've become re-addicted to reading. I've gone through a serious reading drought, but I think I've found something to reignite the passion.

Here's where I confess that even though I earned my bachelor's degree in English, I have never read "Pride and Prejudice." I've read "Emma," but nothing else written by Jane Austen.

I know. Time to retract that degree. I should be ashamed of myself. And trust me: for that, I am ashamed. But I'm making time to quickly remedy the situation. Then, and ONLY THEN will I watch the movies (oh yeah, I've never seen the movies either).

And one last thing.

We found a series to watch. Religiously. Multiple hour-long episodes at a time. Even on weeknights. "Dollhouse." Joss Whedon. It's good stuff.
