New day

I started a new job today. The most stressful part of my day? Deciding what to wear. I spent 12 years wearing the same uniform to work and the last 10 months wearing the same colored scrubs to work. The idea of actually choosing an 'outfit' and a 'style' for my work clothes was exciting [...]
