Usually, Sunday is the start of my weekend, but because I started this new job last week, Sunday is the end of my weekend, like pretty much everyone else in the world.
I don’t like it.
I still have everything to do! I took time off during my 4 day weekend and enjoyed myself… can you believe it? I had Thanksgiving dinner, decorated for the holidays, and took one day to do pretty much nothing. So today, I have to do everything! I have to go grocery shopping :(, cook for the week, do my laundry, pay my bills, and go hiking. I think it’s going to be a busy day.
I’m not a fan of new. I like all my old friends and don’t feel the need to make new ones (unless I’m living somewhere new; then I make an effort). I really didn’t want to take a new job. I’m sort of dreading starting back and working the full week next week. I just keep reminding myself that in a few weeks, it will be “old” and will be better. But it’s hard. I liked my old coworkers, my old office. I liked my van and my clipboard. I miss the TV guy and joking around with other teams. In my new office, I have to speak in an indoor voice and make sure I don’t say anything that could be construed as sexual harassment.
So, today I do my housework, and tomorrow, I go back to the office.
How do you deal with new?
Well I am dealing with a lot of new. I don’t like it I am uncomfortable and scared. I just pray to find the silver lining.
New sucks. I just figure if I tell myself it’s okay enough times, I’ll believe it.
aww… we will just have to plan something every month so the separation doesn’t suck so bad!
(also no pulling swiss army knives out on the new coworkers and saying “I will go swiss army on your ass!”)
Lol. I only did that once. And it was someone who knew me… wasn’t it?
