Well folks, here we are at the end of Vintage Dress Week. It's been fun. A huge thanks to Anna for allowing me to tag along...it was all her idea. This last dress is one of my go-to frocks. It's relevance not only spans decades, but seasons, climates, and weight fluctuations too. It's been a good friend to me since I saved it from a free bag many years ago. This may very well be the first time I've worn it without tights or leggings. I had planned to wear leggings, but it was just too dark for the gorgeous weather we've been having. It needed to be as light and airy as possible.
I received my Microsoft Application Certified Specialist - Excel Certificate (that was a mouthful) in the mail today. Accomplishments that result in certificates or degrees or diplomas are not my thing...so even though this is a small feat in the world of continued education, it's a rather big step for me. I'll spare you my thoughts on classroom style learning and general college education. I WILL say that if you need a degree to obtain your dream job, DO IT. Life is way too short to not do what you love.
I happened to meet with a VP at work a while back. He really liked me and encouraged me to get certified, assuring me that I have great potential for advancement if I continue to expand my skill set. I would be a fool to ignore that advice. Even if advancement isn't my top-priority right now, no doubt it will be some day. By the way...I love my job. Next test: Microsoft Outlook. Piece of cake. Makes me crave icecream.
3 day weekend!!! See you Tuesday!
