You'll Get Worn Out Just Reading This!

Hey girls!

Lots and lots of news lately...

-I started my job as a producer/traffic reporter with WQDR and Triangle Traffic this week! I absolutely love it! I think its going to be a great job!
My schedule isn't bad at all!
I work usually from 6:45am-8:45am MWF, and then 4pm-6pm T/THI
Yesterday, since I am still training, I worked from 6am to 8:30am. I will admit, I was so tired at 5:15, but once I got there, and saw everyone, I was so excited to be there!
I have my own cubicle and everything!
The guy I trained with yesterday reminds me SO much of Andy from "The Office" haha! The girl I trained with last week actually went to my school, and had some of my same professors, so there have already been some great connections.
I work tomorrow and Friday, and then the next week, training is over, so I better know the ropes!
If anyone is late to work, my boss calls them and leaves the part from "Office Space" where the guy is talking to his employee about being late! It makes me want to me late, just once, so I can have that on my voice mail!
I absolutely love the work environment...there's even a Doughnut shop right by the road I work on, so I can get a bagel and a diet coke to start my wonderful!
It is a blessing for me to have this opportunity, because I now know, when I get out of school, I will love working!

- Tonight, I am going to a Valentines Cocktail with a friend of mine (just a friend) and i'm so excited! However, I am an absolute mess too, because I only had 12 hours to prepare for this thing! My friend is the only person I know, and I have most of my formal dresses at home!
Now, lets be honest, y'all know that I can't pass up a cocktail, so I decided to just wear my green dress, that I wore to my schools formal (its actually my favorite dress!)

-I am going skiing with my girlfriends this weekend, and I just couldnt be more excited. My friend D and I are planning to tube...ALOT! We are of course going to drink lots of wine, and have such a great time! There are 5 of us going, and we are leaving on Friday after class. My friend, K, has a condo in Wintergreen, and I think some of her friends from Virginia will be down, too! One guy has a party every year, and so that should be fun! Im so excited to spend time with all of them, because school gets so busy, so its always fun to do stuff on weekends when everyone has time! I can't wait!

-I am STILL waiting on my records from the breast surgeon to be sent to my doctor at home. I cannot remember if I filled y'all in, but when I saw my doctor at home, she felt a lump, so I went to another doctor in Salisbury who did an ultrasound, but didn't see anything. He wrote me an order for an MRI if I still had pain 2 weeks later...well I did, but luckily, my wonderful doctor I saw the first time called me to check up and said I should see a breast surgeon. I found a great surgeon in Raleigh, and went about 3 weeks ago. She, and her nurses were just as sweet, and professional as they could be! Loved it! However, they found 2 cysts, and so finally I realized that I wasn't crazy! She wouldn't drain them, and wants me to come back in July. However, my mother and I talked, and I wanted the records sent to her doctor, because shes great as well! Since it took 2 visits to even find a cyst, one more opinion can't hurt! It has taken 2 weeks for the surgeon to mail the records, and I am still waiting for them to arrive. My mothers sweet doctor is ready though, and since she is also a family friend, she said as soon as they come in, she will look at them. I am still in a lot of pain, and trust me, I never complain...I almost hate to even post about it! To be honest though, im scared. I can feel the cyst more and more. It has been about 12 weeks of pain now, and everyday, its painful in the same area. I can't even lay on my stomach anymore. I am hoping maybe it can be drained. Who knows, I just am so happy there are so many sweet doctors out there! Hopefully the records will come today, and I can figure all of this out.

-Lastly, I sent off my headshots and resumes to all the Soap Oprah's Casting Directors yesterday! WOO HOO! It may go somewhere, it may not! In my opinion, its all in Gods hands, and I know that whatever is supposed to happen will happen! I am also sending my resume and headshot off for Army Wives extras! My agency has been so wonderful to me, I am so excited to work with them! They are helping me get more experience every day!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

You have been one busy girl! And so exciting that you are doing what you love! My fingers are crossed for you for continuing good news both with your health and upcoming opportunities in your career!

OK, please take my advice. I think I mentioned caffeine before but forgot to mention milk products. Until you see your dr, please try cutting bot milk products and caffeine out of your diet! I know its hard but both can cause common but painful breast issues in women. Google it or ask any obgyn. That might not be your solution but it might at least help reduce your pain levels a bit. Without surgery! And keep on that dr to send those tests! You're doing the right thing by getting more opinions.

Congrats on your new job! I am actually from Raleigh (currently living in Boston), so it's exciting to read about locations that I know :)

I read the part on your cysts and I'm so sorry that you're in so much pain. I actually have the same issue in one of my breasts. It was a scary process, but everything turned out to be fine! I had them drained a couple of times and then had surgery. Both procedures were very painless and not scary at all. I feel like the scariest part is the process of finding a good doctor that you're comfortable with. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone and hopefully very shortly there will be no pain!

Good luck with everything!
