new beginnings on Monday

While I officially started my new job on Friday, today is my first real day.  I’m oscillating between being excited and having huge amounts of anxiety.  I’m not worried about the workload itself–that I know I can learn.  I’m worried that it won’t be a good fit or I won’t like it or their lutheran affiliation will come back to bite me in the ass somehow.

I made a tuna sandwich for lunch, with the good tuna, and my cats were really excited about it.  I’m not as excited about it because I don’t have any relish.

I have my Christmas cards ready to go, nice and early.  Every year, I take a picture of me with the cats and make it into a Christmas card.  I started it as a joke, and I continue it for mostly the same reason.  Anyway, I guess I’m a couple months early, but last year I was almost late, so I prefer this way.

What is motivation for working out?  I really need something to help get me out of bed in the morning.

that’s life

Last week’s canceled date finally happened last night.  We went for Thai and hot chocolate and it was delightful.  We’re going bouldering this Saturday.  So we’ll see if it goes anywhere or not.

I start my new job on September 30th.  My bosses told the company today that I was leaving (there’s only 12 of us).  People seemed genuinely surprised, which was surprising to me.  I have made no secret of my boredom and lack of satisfaction.

Netflix sent me an email to let me know that Season 5 of New Girl was up.  So, you know, you know that’s what I’ll be doing.
