Growing Up Again

May 13th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in being

Things are starting to fall together for us at home, especially with finances. I’ve never been one to worry about money, and I’m not liking that now I have to. Guh. But I suppose it’s practical and realistic. It’s kind of sucky growing up, when you have to worry about home insurance and disability insurance (just in case). It gives me a headache when I think about where our money goes (insurance is a huge scam… I can’t believe it’s “required” in so many different areas). Oh well, what can ya do.

Towing

May 3rd, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in reflection

Last month, I got my car towed at the parking lot from my last job. It was the stupidest thing ever, because for months my coworkers and I have been parking on the side next to the building because our work parking lot was always full. The final week before I left the old job, my car got towed. Of course!!! I was not happy about this. I had to take some time off work and ask a coworker to drive me to the 24 hour towing lot down the street to pick up my car. And then I had to fork over the fine in order to get my car out of the impound lot. It was a headache, and I was not amused at all. Oh well, lesson learned (though I’m not sure what lesson this was… perhaps to be more sly in my illegal parking when my work place can’t provide enough spaces for their employees?).

No More Hunting

May 3rd, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in gratitude

And I’m not just talking about hunting for animals, or eating meat (yes, I am a vegetarian), but I specifically mean hunting for stability. No more house hunting, no more job hunting. We’re stable now!!! I sure don’t miss having to update my resumes and sending them out, looking and hoping for an agency that would suit me and that I would be suited for. It’s been over 6 weeks since I’ve started my new position, and I am soooo happy in it. I’m really proud of being part of something therapeutic and innovative. And I’m furthermore proud that they treat me well as an employee. I’ve been waiting for this moment since 2002, when I first got out of university! It’s a long time to be waiting for appreciation in your job field.
