m.i.a (missing in action) no more
Woah!! Where did the last month and a bit get to?? I cannot believe April 16th was the date of my last post. I'm sorry to have left such a giant gap between updates...but I'm back!! M.I.A no more :)
Okay. With such a huge lapse there is lots to say...so I'll try to give you the condensed dot-point version (otherwise we could be here for days!)
*yip yip yip!!* After 3 months of intensive study I am finally finished my small business management course!! And I managed to submit my business plan 2 days early. Hurrah!! It is now in the process of being approved. I should hear back within the next 2 weeks with the final verdict. I can't wait!
In amongst the final few crazy weeks of study I celebrated my 25th birthday. I love birthdays...and this one especially. I kept telling everyone that I was turning 'a quarter of a century'. It felt like a milestone to be enjoyed :)
I had a lovely study-free day (a luxury in itself!) and enjoyed the company and contact with friends and family. Almost 2 weeks later I'm still feeling very pampered and lucky in the birthday after-glow.
With the study finished and the business plan submitted...I anxiously await my business approval and acceptance onto the NEIS program. I'm so excited to be free from my computer (assignment-wise) and back into my creative endeavours. I've set about preparing for my first day at the Old Bus Depot Markets. I hope to have my maiden voyage on Sunday June 1st (about a week and a half from now)...*eep!!*
It is all coming together. I know it will take a little while to get into the swing of things and iron out the little bugs but I have a business! I have a registered business name, an ABN, an insurance quote, and a mobile EFTPOS terminal...all set!! Now I just can't wait to get started!
*squee!* I'm not sure how much information I am allowed to divulge at this stage...so I won't say too much just yet. But I wanted to share my exciting news and let you know that it looks as though I may have a teaching position coming up in the not-too-distant future. Excitement, excitement!!
I couldn't bear to post without some pics so I'll leave you with a few snaps of my packaging...almost ready for market!
