(Third week of May.) I’m in a slump. A rut. The pause button of my life has been pressed. Never before have I understood stood “living for the weekend” better than I do at this point in my life. I’ve been working at my new full-time job for three weeks now, and with every passing… Continue reading Fading Away
(End of April. Let’s keep up the pretense.)
Good news, people of the internet! I got a job!
Wow. I never thought those four words could ever bring me such of a feeling of dreadful joy. I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone. Shake it off.
Anyways, after four months trapped in the evil process of job-hunting, I finally got myself a real grown up job. You know, after their first pick left for a better option. A real confidence booster, isn’t it? Nothing like knowing you’re the second choice. Really makes you eager to meet everyone.
You’re picking up on the sarcasm, right?
On the upside, I got a new car! You know, I think I’m more excited about that then I am about the new job. I’ll miss Snoopy (he was a part of the family for ten years.) But, I think me and Charlie are gonna get along great.
Wish me good luck!
(Written sometime this spring.) Interviews are the worst. Seriously. Questions like “Why do you want this job?” Ummm, last time I checked, money is pretty essential to survival these days. Unless, you know of a community garden filled with money trees, cause that would work too. Wait. No. Something’s wrong. Let’s backtrack this. Yes. Okay.… Continue reading Money Is Why
You may have noticed my utter lack of presence in the blog world these past few months. If not, that’s cool. That’s cool.
Anyways, my disappearance can be blamed on both my general laziness and the semi-chaos that has been terrorizing my life these past few months.
So, if you all could pretend that these next few posts were posted many months ago, that would be great. Okay, thanks. You may continue. Nothing to see here.
Now that Valentine’s Day is over and done with, I can fully wallow in the overwhelming sadness that is my singleness. Last night, I kept tossing and turning, thinking about all of my past boyfriends. And, by boyfriends I mean the three boys with whom I was in mutual crush with during my elementary school… Continue reading Doom, Death, Despair
After a sudden and panic-prolonging change in schedule, I can finally say with relief that I made it through my interview. Or did I?
I have a really bad habit of losing my self-control when I’m in a nerve-wracking situation. I sort of go into robot mode. My words just seem to flow out without any forethought, and that can lead to some really awkward sentences with no endings. Ugh. Those are the moments that keep me up at night.
I’m trying really hard to have the “what’s done is done” attitude, but it’s not working out so great.
I can’t help but turn over every word that was spoken, wishing I could go back and change things. I wish I had prepared better in advance. I wish I hadn’t said “um” so many times. I wish I spoken slower. I wish I had chugged a huge glass of water before leaving the house. WHY DID I SAY THAT!?
Ah, well. There’s nothing to be done about it now.
Valentine’s Day is once again upon us. I have mixed feelings about this holiday. While the sight of all those heart balloons hanging up at Walmart made me a bit cross-eyed, I do enjoy binge watching cheesy romances. And, stuffing my face with chocolate without feeling guilty. My blankets were very lovey-dovey this morning. They… Continue reading Love, Life, Laughter
