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?
