I’m writing this 3 months to the day after I published my last post. I wasn’t sure I was going to start blogging again, to be honest. Not for any really specific reason – I just have a lot going on and I’m always incredibly tired after work. Almost every day, though, I think about a blog post idea or think about writing something, so here we are. Anyway, on to what’s happened in the past 3 months.
I got a new job! I won’t talk about it too much, except to say that I love it and I’m SO MUCH HAPPIER. I was definitely burnt out and working in a toxic environment so now that I’m in a different environment doing different work it’s like a breath of fresh air. It’s definitely a very tough job though – I’m a project manager now in a brand new industry and I have a lot to learn. I’m having difficulty with parts of it, but nothing that’s insurmountable. I really enjoy the challenge of it all. I’m also loving working in an office….though I definitely miss hanging out with the cats sometimes. Laurie will forever be my favorite office mate and that will never change. Really the only downside is that I’m still (I’ve been there about a month and a half) so exhausted when I get home I don’t do anything productive. I keep waiting for that to wear off, but it hasn’t yet.
Shane and I have been spending a lot of time doing stuff on the weekends – local festivals, going to the beach, we went to Charleston for a friend’s birthday, visiting friends & family, and so on. I used to not want to leave the house on the weekends, but it’s been a lot of fun. I’m hoping to keep that going all summer and beyond.
Overall, life has been getting better. Unfortunately, I haven’t been keeping in touch with my pen-pals and it’s now at the point where I get really bad anxiety thinking about it. I’m working through it, though.
I need to try to get some stuff done before I try to squeeze in an episode of Handmaid’s Tale before bed.
