Happy Friday Fellow Tumblrs!
Things are starting to look up!
On the health & fitness front? Things are going well, I am on track with eating and fitness, but sadly the scale is still fairly stagnant BUT I have been talking in depth with Maria, my trainer Kris, and Liz about some tweaks in my eating. They have all said I am already way ahead of the game in what I know and understand about nutrition but what’s keeping me stagnant on the scale could be the ratio in my fat to protein to carb. I am excited about trying out what they all suggest, and am so glad I have that support!
On the work front? *sigh* I have been trying and trying, applying often, barely hear back. Couple prospects right now that I want to pursue. It’s still hard out there. Also considering taking some courses at the university to get certifications in some design programs to put me at least a few steps ahead.
On the boy front? Swoon! This very cute guy and I are…..going steady? LOL…..I don’t know how else to put it, neither of us are seeing anyone else. I have a great time with him. And guess what? He doesn’t mind my slightly calloused hands (from CrossFit) because he too works out a lot and has them also! And I confessed about how I suck at running and it tops my “Suck List”, and low and behold, he is great at running and said he’ll help me out! So far so good…
Guess who’s sticking it to the man by doing my laundry at work?
Work is a big cluster fuck today.
That explains my absence. I need a smoke bomb for my exit.
Have got to plan my exit strategy!
I’m beyond over it and frustrated here. I need a new job like a chubba kid need cake. ASAP.
Tomorrow I need balls of steel by 5 p.m.
I am planning on having a serious (economical) chat with my boss. Need the luck, the strength and the balls to do it properly.
Dust Yourself Off
I have been applying and applying for jobs in my desired industry (advertising) and the industry in which I got my bachelors degree in. I know, I know, everyone says, “It’s the economy! It’s the economy!,” like it’s the plague. I understand that, but it doesn’t negate the fact that I would love to be doing something I LOVE, for it not to feel like work.
Blah, blah, yeah yeah, I know EVERYONE wants that. I have been trying and trying, though, and it just makes me wonder, when? Or am I doing something wrong in the process?
What makes it a bit more difficult for me to actively look for a job in my field, is that I currently have a full time job so I can’t continuously go on interviews or job fairs, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I am super grateful that I HAVE a job, unlike many others in these days, but I just think it’s time I put my degree to use, and not to mention I need to make more money as well. But if it’s for something I love, I’d be willing to get paid the same (or more obviously).
