First, just a prayer for all of those lost and left behind on September 11, 2001. I will never forget that day, I was still in highschool, in the music room and remember just sitting in a group, all holding hands, watching the television in the corner as the towers came down. I can't believe it's been 6 years. God bless every one of the people hurt by the worst tragedy of my lifetime.
Well, I know there's really no excuse for not posting for 10 whole days, but last week was sooooo crazy, stressful, emotionally draining... But it all ended in a good way! I have a new job! The whole reason I started going to school to become a health information coding specialist was because my best friend's mom showed me a picture of one of her AHIMA magazines of a young woman sitting on her bed in her pajamas with a coffee cup in her hand and a laptop in front of her. She told me, "Girly! If you're interested, there will be a multitude of opportunities waiting for you!" And boy, was she right!
I was certified in April, and it only took me 4 months to have 3 job offers that I didn't even go looking for. It was a hard ordeal, just because I really love the small hospital that I work for, but the opportunities are as small as the hospital. I will now be working for a national outsourcing company that has over 650 hospitals all around the US as clients. They send me my work through the internet every morning and I have until mid-night to finish it. How cool is that??? I am totally excited, and am already thinking of how I will decorate my new home-office!
This is a pic of Heather Bailey's studio and I love the colors and vibe. I think instead of the aqua, tho, I'm leaning towards brown in it's place. Yes, pinks and creams and browns... Like a big neopolitan ice-cream sandwich.
I've been playing with some of the sheet music from the New york Public Library's Digital Gallery... My favorite one is below. I have about 8 different ones so far. I think I'd blow them up to 8 x 10 and frame them all in the same frame and hang them over my desk, which I think I might get from IKEA on the 29th of this month. Now to find just the right color of pink for the walls!
