    It's About Time!

    I had been searching since July of 2008, when I was laid off. Finally, just when the call came saying my car was pending reposession, the phone rang again. The voice I was waiting to hear saying the words I was waiting to hear, "The position is yours if you still want...

    Today Was The First Day

    Subway Sandwich-making

    And I have only been there a day and I already hate it. Too bad I was fired from account management or I'd go back to that.  At subway they pay what is at the very bottom of minimum wage and they do not give 40 hours especially starting out so I may not be able to survive...

    Breathe. Just breathe. Take a deep breath in and let it out. You are alive and well. I tell myself this everyday.. even though I rarely believe it. Life can get a little hectic at times... and we all get nervous at some points; however, instead of getting nervous, get excited...

    An Internal Promotion

    Perhaps this position isn't as "sexy" as some have posted here, but it's still a big step. The corporation I work with was just purchased in a merger. Most of the leadership (and all the contractors) was displaced from my legacy side. For six months now, upper...

    New job = New people to get to know and to obscure myself to. It's always a battle between congruence and denial, though so far so good.  Delays with my Police Check have ensured that I've been 'back room' so I've settled myself in Reception, with occasional shadowing of...

    Tomorrow is my first day of my new job.

    I already am super nervous. I know this is not a job I am going to be in for the rest of my life. This job though is like a big deal to my family and I don't want to ruin there expectations. I haven't even started and I'm doubting I'll even like the job.
