What? Like, it's hard?

Okay so you know the scene in Legally Blonde where Elle is getting ready for her first class at Harvard Law and she's dressed in that terrible tweed sweater thing and wearing designer glasses and she looks in the mirror and says to her reflection "I totally look the part"?? Okay I just had that moment in my bathroom. I'm all dressed in my cute little brown skirt suit with an appropriate yet fun little blouse and some really cute shoes (cause y'all know I have to have cute shoes!) and I thought to myself... "I totally look the part".

The problem is I don't FEEL the part yet. I guess that is what is scariest about starting a new job. (Also? Hi! I got a new job! I know I owe you an explanation post - stay tuned.) Mentally I am ready for this. I've worked my ass of to get here, it is the logical next step and it could end up being better than I ever dreamed. And yet emotionally I'm still kind of like... really? This is what I am growing up to be? How did THAT happen?

So anyway. Wish me luck. Orientation at the new job starts in 45 minutes. If you need me I'll be in the bathroom vomiting.
