Oh, how I have missed you all. I’ve been baking but I always forget to take a picture of it. Which completely kills the idea of having a food blog. I also have to consider that I actually enjoying writing and I have missed you guys a lot. It was a lot nicer to get things off my chest, not just food recipes.

A lot has happened since my last real post.

– I’m moving to a new apartment.
– My current landlord is making my life hell.
– My amazing boss is leaving us….which sucks beyond belief.
– My boyfriend is leaving to train with the armed forces.
– Did I mention my landlord is making my life hell.

Anyway, I’m glad to be back.

See you soon!

Well, hello there. I’m sorry that I have been gone for so long but that’s what happens when you start a new job and suddenly every second is precious.

So here are some highlights:

Work: It’s going well, still really stressful. I really hope that everything will click soon because right now, it hasn’t. I’m making friends, which is a huge relief. Most of the time, I feel like I am running without my head or that people think I am incredibly stupid. But it’s ok, everything takes time so I am willing to wait and go with the flow.  

 Home: My house is so dirty…holy laundry. I just don’t have the energy to clean at all. I mean seriously, who wants to come home around 7/8 and clean?! I don’t…I don’t even want to make dinner but a girl has to eat.

 So much has happened since my last post, I don’t know where to start. Ok, the work party story I mentioned before. I had a few going out parties at my old job and they were fantastic. One of my guy friends, the one who I’ve always had a great connection with, went to the party as well. As I went to leave, he hugged me. I know everyone hugs but here’s the story behind the hug. Two of my friends were standing behind me and when my friend hugged me, I’m sure they assumed it would be short and we would leave. No, this hug lasted for like ten minutes. At first I thought I was holding on too long, so I let go…but he wouldn’t. He just kept hugging me, he told me that he would miss me a lot and that he loved me. (No, not the real love but it was still sweet.) I thought that was it so I pulled away again (now the second time I’ve pulled away) and nothing, he wouldn’t let go. A few minutes later, he gives me a kiss on the cheek, said we would see each other soon and let me go. As I left the bar, I became so sad. I remember sitting on the train actually depressed, I felt that we wouldn’t see each other again. The fact that he held on so tightly meant that it was the end.

Ok, I’m being overly dramatic because I’ve seen him almost every week for drinks with a few other coworkers. It’s nice that I get to see them and have a few drinks. I don’t usually go out during the week but going out with them is just fun.

Ok, that’s enough for now. I’m finally going to read everything that I’ve missed with you all and comment.

 

I missed you guys! 

  

What a day. I have no idea what I’m doing at all. At all. Seriously, I couldn’t punch holes in paper correctly, I swear I have a mental problem. For most of the day, I had a horrible headache…mainly from reading so much and looking every word up. Thank you medical jargon. The people are nice though, which is a plus. They took me out to lunch and bought me a desk plant…very sweet.

But unless I learn how to do my job well, that will all fade. Apparently, you will succeed in six months or ultimately realize that this is not the right job. That’s not stressful at all. ha, right.

I missed working at my old company, not the work (obviously) but the people. I could go to anyone’s desk and just talk. Or go and hang out with my favorite guys (story about that later.)

It’s going to take a long time to deal with all of this. I just hope I can do it because right now, I am seriously doubting myself. Especially after fucking up punching holes in paper. Seriously?! How hard is it to create a binder? Apparently, it is really hard for me.

This will get better right? God I hope so. I hate this feeling.

I was so nervous last night that I couldn’t fall asleep at all. I stayed up the whole night thinking about my old coworkers and how I left them. Yes, it was for the best ( right?) but it made me sad. They through me a great going away party and I will post about that tomorrow, one moment has been on my mind all weekend.

Sidenote: my face is so dry and it’s cracking. Damn winter. Any good ideas to fix that? I had to go to the bathroom every hour just to reapply face cream since it looked so flaky and gross. Ugh.

I think I’m getting sick which is kind of bad if you have to start a new job on Monday.

I’m going to drink some Airborne and overdose on tea.

Sadly, we only had seven trick or treaters last night. Where did all of the kids go? I remember going to every single house to maximaze my candy total. I wanted to see fun costumes and cute little children but nope, only seven kids. So sad.

My new boss emailed me last night and showed me the proof for my new business card, how cool is that? I’m getting excited!

Wow, so I’m finally done. My last day was extremely hectic and busy, I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to everyone since my boss still had a huge list of things for me to do. Nice, right? But my last day was sweet, I realized how much people cared about me there. They bought me flowers and cake. That’s what I’m going to miss, not my horrible boss or the boring work but the people that I’ve spent that last year with, the ones that stood by me through all of the terrible things and all of the flirting and fun. But almost everything has to come to an end….sadly.

This is feeling more like a vacation but in reality, I no longer work there. I’m having mixed feelings about this whole thing, I’m excited to meet new people and to try this new job but I love being comfortable ( who doesn’t right?) so leaving my current job was hard and hopefully I won’t think it was a mistake. Who knows, maybe my new boss will be horrible or the work might be so boring, I would want to rip my hair out. But that’s the risk you take when you do new things, no one ever said it would be easy but hopefully it will be worth it.

Today, I’m going to watch every show that I’ve missed and more. Maybe organize my closet or sleep a lot.

Amen for days off 🙂 or for quitting your job.
