Re: Small Successes

I fully paid during my sociology lecture without falling asleep or spacing out (laughed at the cynical comments my professor made but as an act of acknowledgment due to comprehending the material) and managed to write a list of the 10+ large assignments I have due this week and attempting to take each one down, one by one.

Re: Small Successes

Just saw my med doc after not seeing him for a year. He's got me on some more meds again
/sigh
Now to stay on them. I'm great at starting meds...not so great at sticking with them (especially when I don't "feel" them helping). We'll see...at least I kept my appointment with him.

Re: Small Successes

And...all my blood tests except my a1c (diabetes) are in the normal ranges . Last time I saw my doc I had a lot of things out of whack and he thought I had some issues with my liver...but now everything is all good .
Also...though I haven't lost any weight...I haven't gained any either. So that's nice.

Oh, and there's a new program my doc is going to get me into (my insurance will cover it) to help me get this diabetes thing under control. Don't know a lot about it yet...but I'm not doing so good handling this on my own, so I'm looking forward to getting some outside help. (Also, they're going to give me a scale I get to keep that has built in wifi so it'll communicate with my phone and computer. Lol pretty neat. It also sends the data to them through my internet).

Re: Small Successes

Accepted defeat and will turn a paper in late--this is only so I can get my next assignment done and over with.

I also started journaling in a new journal because I thought I lost my old one, so I bought a new one...only to find my old one on my bedroom's window sill after having already started on the new one, so I've ultimately designated the old one as a doodle log.

I got my guys to sign their write ups and gave away the paperwork I'd been holding on to.

Monday at 2pm!
That's when I meet with the director of the Life Enrichment And Activities Department.

I keep switching between super excited, and scared! I'm SO scared I'm going to get the job, only to quit soon after.
I think if I can just make it through the first 2 or 3 weeks...get over that initial hump...I should be able to hold on.

And I'm doing a bit of research on the job, and omg...it sounds so amazing! It sounds like a lot of work and a lot of planning, but SO rewarding and SO much fun!

I was also on the place's website the other day and read everything the site had to be read hehe. There was also a 20 min youtube video they have posted there I watched, and it really got me pumped. A lot of it sounds cheesy...their values and their ideals about how they treat the people who live there, and who they hire to work there...but it really actually touched me and really has me excited. I feel like I'm going to be a perfect fit to work there. I have the same core values and beliefs that they seem to desire, and I really think if I can stick with it I'm going to shine there!

Oh my goodness Monday can NOT get here soon enough.

Gah though. I'm trying to not get too overly excited. I'm good at doing that. And then crashing when reality sinks in and things don't turn out to be quite as exciting as I had them worked up to be in my head. Than I have a hard time sticking with whatever it is.

I haven't gotten the job yet. Just an interview...but I really have a good feeling about this.

...And there's the fear again! It just came back to me. This is a pretty big deal...I sure hope I can handle this!
/gulp!

(((Hugs)))

Re: Small Successes

Taking the bull by the horns, picking myself up, dusting myself off...fighting through all my doubts, anxieties and fears...and really fighting for myself today. Falling down, standing back up, putting my chin high in the air...and fighting for something I'm very passionate about.
Not giving in.
Not letting myself settle with another failed attempt.

I'm damned proud of all that I've accomplished today. I feel as if I took a huge stride in my life today.
Even if I don't get the job I've applied for...damn I'm going to walk away feeling proud for how I handled myself throughout. The incredibly personal cover letter...and the going back after a not so great interview to really open up and fight for the position.
So proud!
I kinda sorta (self conceited) love this fighting side of me! Fighting for what's right! And I am SO the right person for this position! I can feel it in my soul!

OT, forgive me, but I have none other than four staplers from the Stone Age from my mother's "necessities" collection that are virtually repair-free AND indestructible and they each weigh a ton!

I have no successes to report. Carry on.

Re: Small Successes

lol I took out a loan a couple of years ago through my bank to buy a bike. It's all decked out too...I even bought a mount to place my phone on it, and bought a speedometer/computer dongle thingy that connects to my phone via bluetooth. In all I have about $900 into it.
I've ridden it a total of 3 times.
>.<'

It now sits in my bedroom looking cool as hell. haha
It's something I'm glad I own though. One day!

Also, outline for what? And I hope the conference call went well! I suck at talking over phones lol.
