Well I had started a post entitled “Just Blew Another Interview” but I had to discard it because the interview actually went better than expected – they called me for an in-person interview! Wah! I think I am not the greatest judge of how interviews go. This is a job for a company that provides IT Security Services and I would be a Support Services Technician. There are pluses and minuses to this idea. The pluses are that it would be very structured, and I’d get four months of training, and constant further opportunities to learn. The minuses are that I’d be on the phone all day providing support. However for my first Security job I think it might be better than the other job that is at a higher level with wayyyyy more responsibility that I don’t think I’m either ready or qualified for. So I’m going to study my ass off for tomorrow’s interview.
NOW for the title of my blog! I have had many sleepless nights lately, well, correction, I fall asleep, but I wake up in the middle of the night, and my brain starts worrying, like about jobs, or money, and it’s like a runaway train, I can’t control it, it’s so bad, you know how everything is magnified in the middle of the night? So then I can’t get back to sleep and my stress levels are through the ROOF! So I told Dr. Drugs about this, and he says “We have to get you sleeping. How about some Xanax?” To which I replied in my head “Oh goodie!” but out loud I was like, “Oh?” and he went on about how Xanax isn’t like Clonazepam, it’s not sedating, but it just cuts off the anxiety like BAM! So he prescribed me three Xanax a day PRN, and he said he wasn’t going to give me any refills, but I think Dr. Drugs is slipping a little, because he gave me three refills!!! So I am on the Xanax train, people!!! I got it filled last night, because I couldn’t take another night of being up for hours and hours, and guess what? I didn’t even need it!! The times I woke up, I was able to think happy sunbeam thoughts and get back to sleep. So YEAH!! I’m glad I have it for “just in case” though.
I feel stupid providing an update on the other job, but all I can say is they still say that ol’ start date is coming. They just need a couple more signatures….blah blah blah. All I can say is that their delays are affording me the chance to interview for this other job that might be better for me, so I’m not mad any more. I guess I will end up where I’m supposed to be, in the grand scheme of things. I am trying to trust that the Universe has a plan….
Hope you all are having a delicious week, please let me know how you are! Peach out, BPOF
