Gosh, another week has gone by already! Well the first week at the job was good. The first day, I was worried that my new boss was going to be a raging bitch. She gave me a bad impression. But as the week wore on, I got to know her a little, and that bad impression wore off. Whew! I’m glad.
I’m also glad to say that they kept me busy and I also got my exercise walking around that GIGANTIC building!! It’s a quarter mile from one end to the other. I also took a walk outside around the building during my lunch hour. The grounds are very pretty, lots of trees and grass and some marshy areas, and lots of birds, which of course I LOVE!
I’m still going to bed pretty much as soon as I get home. I ran a few errands after work a couple of days. WOW was I grateful for the short, short drive to and from work!!! But working full-time is just dang tiring for me and I need a lot of rest. I wake up pretty early and that’s fine, I like a long morning.
One thing I LOVE about the job is that I get to wear jeans and sneakers – YEAH!!! I wear a nice top (well, not a t-shirt) but some people dress so casually that I’m shocked!! T-shirts, hats, shorts…it’s like they’re going fishing or something! Whatever, it’s nice not to have to dress up. I still do my hair and makeup. I have my standards.
I’m still looking for a Security job and I sent two leads to the Workforce Center. They are “supposed” to be trying to get me an on-the-job training opportunity. I don’t know if they’re doing shit or not but I hope they are. I will look some more this weekend. There’s very little for me to apply for with my teensy bit of experience, but I’m not giving up! I can’t stay in Desktop Support! The only thing that makes it tolerable is telling myself that it’s temporary. Still, having a paycheck and money in the bank feels damned good.
My mood is steady and good, thank God!! This time of year is so much easier than Fall and Winter. I’m just so grateful for the beauty and the warmth and the long days! It makes life ever so much easier!
Well, peeps, be in touch please! I hope you’re all well. Hugs & kisses, BPOF!
