News Revealed!

It's Friday y'all!!!
Let's begin, shall we?
Dear Chicago: You decided to finally get the most snow we've seen all year. Not only did you delay everyone and their momma this morning, but all your slush is ruining my pretty Steve Madden boots. Stop it.
Dear Body: Stop acting so weird. I've been to the doctor 3 times this week and have gotten a ridiculous amount of blood drawn and still no answer as to what's going on. Let's just say seeing a Rheumatologist for a possible autoimmune disorder is not how I wanted to spend my Friday morning.
Dear Justin Timberlake: WHY DID YOU NOW DECIDE TO GO ON TOUR THIS YEAR!?!?!?!? I more than likely will not be able to see your fine self and this breaks my heart. Jay-Z will also be co-headlining but I've already seen Jigga quite a few times in the past. Quite frankly, I prefer to see him when he performs with Kanye, but that's just me.
Dear Gym: You and I are going to become really good friends the next month. Be good to me.
Dear McDonald's: You were delicious today. It's Friday, it's cheat day, don't judge me. In my defense, I did order some oatmeal and a hashbrown.
Dear Mr. Firefighter: I miss your handsome self. Date night soon, please? Thanks.
And now for the news that I have been promising for quite some time now:
I have officially been hired by an Illinois Police Department!
(i will keep the department's name secret for safety purposes) 
I will start the police academy in April and will be in a 12 week training course.
For all of you who follow me, you know how long I've been working my ass off for this. It's been one hell of a waiting game and I am beyond excited and freakin nervous to begin this next part of my life :)
I will also not have a life for a very long time but let's not focus on that.
I have already notified my current employer and they have been quite great about it. Kind of. My boss knew it was going to happen at some point, I just don't think any of us expected it to be this soon. I've been working at this law firm for over 5 years, since I was 20 years old. That's a long time for someone in their twenties. I was fortunate enough to get the job when I was a junior in college and they hired me on full time after I graduated. I have learned an immense amount of knowledge of civil processes, law suits, statutes, etc. BUT it's not the side of the law I wanted to work for.
Here's to hoping everything works out!
I hope everyone has a fabulous and safe weekend! Keep it classy, just a little bit nasty, but never trashy.
