"Just" [May. 18th, 2018|08:22 pm]
Almost Famous

When I applied for this job in Northern VA, I had to convince myself to do it.  I do overthink everything.  And so I didnt want to apply for a job I wasn't at least a little bit serious about.  Then before I applying, I had to search the area for possible places to live.  I can't apply to a job in an area I would never want to be stuck in.  And lemme tell you, it was extremely hard to find a place comparable to where I live now (cause it's only up from here, and this place is amazing).  Rent is higher in NoVa; I knew...I was prepared.  The starting salary is almost 10k more than I make now which was attractive, even with the high cost of living.  But I did find a place I liked, and shortly after I applied for the job.  Last week.

Today I got an email about an interview.  I was floored.  I'm not ready.  I can't move right now! What if that place isn't available?  Also, I can't afford to move.  Also, I'm lowkey scared... But I'm ahead of myself, as per usual.  

It just so happens, I'll be in Fredericksburg for work next week.  That's 45 minutes from the interview.  I feel like that's a little bit of God's plan, right?  So I scheduled the interview.  And now I'm back to freaking out.

He wants to meet up.  Of course he wants to meet up.  I agreed on Tuesday but I wish I hadn't.  I just feel like I had a moment of weakness.  Like I want to sit across from him at dinner and hear him say all his regrets in regards to how things played out with us.  How even though he has everything he ever wanted now, the only thing that's missing is me.  And there's nothing he can do about it, because this is what he chose.  And this is what I've come to terms with in the past five or six years.  I lost count of how long it's been.  But it honestly doesn't hurt and confuse me any less.  Well, I guess I'm not confused.  I get it.  I just don't support it.

Spring Break [Apr. 20th, 2018|07:04 pm]
Almost Famous

I promise, since college, my mind goes on a mental Spring Break.  It has been rough.  Like, I can't work.  I don't want to get up for work.  I'm daydreaming in the office.  Simply put, I know it's time for a spring break and I need to be re-charged.  Academia was on to something.  Corporate America needs to hop on board with this concept.  Spring Break for all!

I made a mistake and made out with that new homie.  Who didn't see that coming? Whatever.  At least he's not married. I'm just being honest.  I want to care more than I actually do.  I'm going to blame this recent behavior on "Spring Break" too.

I just need a minute to myself.

So the horrible girl at work was low-key fired while I was on a business trip.  That was relief.  She was really really bad energy.

That Escalated Quickly [Mar. 17th, 2018|08:36 pm]

So, that guy that was supposed to be everything I desired right now...A great friend? A possible romantic interest?  Well, he's not.  I found out he has a pregnant girlfriend.  I feel some type of way because he didn't tell me. And because he was interested in me.  He's a dirty dog, and I really don't have more to add.  Glad I dodged that bullet.  I don't need a friend or anything like that cause quite frankly, been there, done that....

On a better note, I opted to not contact HR again about the internal position I applied to in January and never heard another thing about.  However, HR finally hit me up this week to inform me that the position has been put on hold, and that they'll definitely contact me should they decide to proceed with the opening again.  I really don't care what they do anymore; I'm just happy for closure.

I am still heavily bored at work.  I now work from home once a week, just for a change of scenery or something.  The horrible new girl got demoted so that's cool. She's outta my hair and I have a huge cubicle to myself for certain because HR told her my department didn't have the demand for an additional person.  Alledgely that's why she got moved.  I don't know if that's true and I don't care.  I'm just so relieved the tension has been removed.
