And finally I started my first week of work. My career as a financial aid officer starts with a three week training course before I actually get thrown into the muck. After day one, I went to bed at 8:30. I was drop dead exhausted. I am just so not used to waking up early and focusing for a full 8 hours of boring dribble. Hmm… that didn’t sound too positive, did it LOL? Okay, so I am totally grateful to have this job, let me be real. The place is nice, the people are nice, I haven’t got much to complain about. It’s just that there is sooooooo much information that they are trying to pack into us, and my brain gets fried after a while. Once the lunch coma sets in, I am pretty much useless. The lights are on, but nobody is home. My pretty little pea brain undergoes a complete and utter shut down. After five long days, however, I got through my first week. Let me just bask in that small victory. There will be a paycheck. That’s all that matters.
So, I don’t know if your remember, but at the time of me getting this job, a car insurance company was also showing some interest in me. On Tuesday I left work a half hour early pretending that I had to go to an “emergency dentist appointment” and went for the interview (is that horrid?). I want that job. The pay is better, and if I get it and stay with it, I think I could finally become financially self sufficient. I haven’t heard from them yet, but I have a good feeling about it. Why? Okay well this is going to sound a bit silly, but I have this thing about found pennies. I consider them to be good luck. After an hour and a half interview, I was walking to the car and guess what I saw on the floor? A lucky penny!!! I think it’s a sign from the universe.
Friday had me feeling very low. It’s not worth getting into it, so I’ll spare you the drama. You guys put up with enough of my crap (and I appreciate it more than you know *kisses*). Why do I have to be so full of feelings? Why can’t it be chocolate cake instead? Damn my thunder thighs. Anyway, I was totally thrown off balance and things kind of snowballed throughout the day. We all have days like that I guess. It showed me that I still have a long way to go in my journey to being okay with myself. One day, I’m totally going to learn how to shake all the shit off and be completely fucking zen. Watch this space LOL. Sometimes, a girl needs to remember who she, adjust her crown, and eat something fattening. Feelings, like work, are also overrated. Pah! I spit on feelings LOL. Well, I have a long weekend to recuperate. Monday is the 4th of July. One of my friends has a condo on the beach and invited me over to watch the fireworks from the roof top. That’s my tentative plan. How about you, how will you be celebrating?
