Another Day One

I started a new job today. I was going to end that first sentence with an exclamation point but I find I'm too tired at the moment to be excited about it. That doesn't mean my first day was a bad day. It was a very good day. It was just a very overwhelming day. … Continue reading Another Day One

One More Day

I only have one more day left in my current job. One more day and then next week begins a brand new adventure. No... that sounds more exciting than it is. It's a new job... not an adventure. I'm nervous and have no idea what I'm doing. But I'll learn. And I'd be lying if … Continue reading One More Day

I Did a Thing…

Not sure how much I can or should actually say at the moment. But I've been offered a new job and I have accepted said job. I've given my notice to my current employers and will begin my new position in a couple of weeks. I'm nervous and excited. It's an interesting mix of feelings. … Continue reading I Did a Thing…

Summoned to the Office

A little background... I don't typically work in our office. I'm out in the community with clients throughout the vast majority of my work day. For me to go into the office is a rare thing. It means I've got a meeting with my supervisor or a staff meeting or a client needs to meet … Continue reading Summoned to the Office

I’m Not Ready for This

Tomorrow is April 1. That means tomorrow begins the A to Z Challenge. I am truly unprepared for this thing. I said I would be writing some kind of short fiction every day based on random words beginning with each day's appropriate letter. Thus far, I've received words from friends and family for A through … Continue reading I’m Not Ready for This

I Do Not Like My Life Very Much Right Now

First, let me state for the record: I am in no way in any sort of physical danger. What follows is a very un-put-together series of thoughts that basically amount to me trying to make sense of the emotional and psychological trauma that day-to-day life has had in store for me recently. Again, there is … Continue reading I Do Not Like My Life Very Much Right Now

No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…

Question of the Week #282

If you had to either change professions or move to another part of the country, which would you prefer? What new career or location first comes to mind? Is the idea of being forced into such a change appealing in any way? I really think I would be okay with either of those options. As … Continue reading Question of the Week #282

A Walk in the Park

Originally written in January of 2011… The old man could be found in the same place every day. He could be found sitting on the same park bench feeding pigeons again and again. He used to spend his lunch break throwing bread crumbs to the birds. Now he spent most of his day here. Hank … Continue reading A Walk in the Park
