All Work, Some Play

Whew! The past week has been CRAAAZY for me. Like, ridiculous. I’m going to break it down for you in bullet-form since I’m pretty sure that if I wrote this as an actually post it would have no flow what-so-ever. At least bullets are nice to look at.

  • So, the first day I went back to Job #1 after the wedding there was an in-office position up for grabs in the editorial department. When did it close? Oh, just the next day! So, I sent off my resume and hoped for the best. I had to wait another week while it was posted to the public. Lame-o.
  • Last Monday after it was done running for the public, I got asked to go for an interview for the position on Wednesday. Terrified and excited, I tried not to get my hopes up.
  • Wednesday comes along, I go for my interview and come out feeling … just okay. Some people are excellent during interviews. Me, not so much. Hello, Introvert! Needless to say, I tried not to get my hopes up again.
  • Thursday I get called in for a meeting.
  • Friday I had a “quick and dirty” training session. Yep, I got the job!
  • Now I’m working full time until they find someone to replace me. So, 1/2 a day in the old department, 1/2 a day in the new department.
  • Raises are fantastic.
  • I’m still working part-time, but the raise makes up for that. And it’s one step closer in the direction I want to go in my career.
  • Tomorrow is my last shift at Job #2. Hell yes!
  • I played in a softball/slo-pitch tournament this weekend and I got my first sunburn of the year. My face feels horrible.
  • My legs are killing me.
  • I’m pretty sure I need to get my ass back in the gym.
  • I had a freaking blast playing the weekend. I really missed it!
  • Oh, and the fan went on my laptop on Thursday, so hopefully Kyle can pick it up sometime today.
That’s it. Happy Monday!
How was YOUR weekend?

  1. Congrats on the new job!!!

    My weekend was relaxing. We had all sorts of outdoor adventures planned but it rained so we went to the library instead. A weekend of books and spending time with my boys = fantastic :)


  2. I really can’t get over how perfect this is. You quit your crappy old job, just in time to get promoted in your career-related job! That, my friend, is the universe on your side. Life is good and you deserve this. :)
