I thought I was a pessimist but I think one of my new co-workers has taken their lion share of pessimism in this world. Angry, angry, angry. I actually had to say to her, "Just take what you have and make the most of it. They aren't going to give us more, so, work with it and let it be." As I said this, I realized that the issues she is having with work are so not about work. But then again, they never are. Boundaries, people, boundaries.
with my sister last night, we got to discussing how body image is tied to self-confidence which in turn affects how people work and live. And let me tell you, there are some major body image issues going on at my new job. She may not think so but I know so. Baby, I was a fat, heavy person a while back. I just did something about it and my entire outlook on life changed. So, Maria, my sister, mentioned that I need to be careful because I report to her. Yeah, as if I was ever scared of losing my job. There are more out there. Especially for people who like to work. Like me.
I will say that for the next three weeks, I get Saturday and Sunday off. I cannot even believe it. That is so bizarre to me. The only frustration is that my new work space is not fully constructed and we are supposed to be moving in soon. Plus, I don't have computer access always which is tough when a lot of my current work has to do with computer communication. Crazy but it's the nature of where I work. It's equally frustrating and irritating. But I make do.
I am exicted about it all. Until Negative Nelly walks in the room to bring everyone down. I just smile and move on. At least, the person who hired me (who NN reports to) is a friend and much more optimistic about life. Plus she has potty mouth which I love. Ok, I have to go get ready to leave for work. My commute is a bitch. Later.
