The new job
Ok, sorry for not updating right away - I am trying to be a good girl with the internet. :)

New job ROCKS. A kitchen full of food/drink, an office full of crazy people, an easier job I than I had before, a bigger paycheck and a flex-schedule! It just doesn't get any better than that...

I'm a little lonely for my old friends, but its just a matter of time before I warm the hearts here. Hehe. (evil laugh)

There are only 2 sucky things about it. My chair makes a "farting" noise everytime I sit in it, and I sit in a cubicle. Not a good combo. But other than that, I'm pretty happy.

I'm freaking out. I can't even type anymore. In fact, I can't do anything anymore. Especially think and spell. I had to go in an extra day after my official last day at work to do some training - and THAT was the day I had the realization that I just left a job I have spent 10 years at - my comfort zone, my home, my internet play box, my JOB. I am now going into the unknown where I may have to actually BLOG AT HOME. The horror. Maybe. I have been pacing and not eating and acting like someone who is perma-caffeinated. Which is probably true anyway.

I don't know why I'm tweaking so much NOW, but I am. I have a case of the what-ifs. What if I suck at my new job? What if I hate my new job? What if they hate me?

Did I not warn you?

OK. It has been an interesting week. My boss said to me on Friday looking at my EMPTY office: "Wow. You sure are anxious to start your new job." Yes, its true. About 5 minutes after I gave my two weeks notice, I started cleaning out my office. Hee. A co-worker also told me I seemed "happy" and "relaxed". (As opposed to angry and stressed out.) Apparently, I was unhappy there. I thought it was going to be an emotional and stressful week, but nope. Just want to get the hell outta there. I just keep thinking about the concept of a life. and its satisfying. People keep asking me if I'm "going to the meeting", and I keep replying "Nah." Nothing has ever given me more delight.

For Mrs. Divaquest: I work for a medical device manufacturing company. I control all procedures and engineering drawings - and make sure all goings-on comply with international and FDA regulations. I also do audits. Hold back all enthusiasm. I know I do. My official title is "Regulatory Affairs Specialist", but my unofficial title is "Goddess of everything". I'm pretty much going to be doing the same thing at the new company, but for more $$ and less annoying assholes. (I've met everyone and they are great.) I know no company is 'perfect', but seriously folks, I work at a tomb. Most people there are so boring and arrogant it makes me want to hurl.

I'm very excited to start my new job. I hear they are quite the "pranksters". I'll fit in well. It will also be exciting to have a whole new office of people I can make fun of.

Somebody googled "captain crunch frappuccino recipes" and my site came up. Not only is that a tad bizzare, but CAPTAIN CRUNCH FRAPPUCCINO? Must. Find. Now.

Hell is frozen and pigs are flying.
Drumroll pleez....I did it!! I did it!! I QUIT MY DAY JOB. I have been there for 10 WHOLE YEARS. It is the only real job I've ever had.

Out of the blue, I got a call from this really great job across the street from where I work now. I interviewed, got an offer, and took it. Lots more $$, lots more benes, and STOCK OPTIONS. God, I feel like an adult or something. Scary. I am a little freaked out, though - this is a HUGE step for me. I will be exiting my comfort zone. I may be a little neurotic in the weeks to come. Just warning you.

I quit one of my restaurant jobs, too. I repeat: I QUIT ONE OF MY RESTAURANT JOBS. As it stands now, I will only be working a couple of hours on Friday nights at the French restaurant, just for fun. :) HOLY CRAP. A REAL LIFE. Look out world...

I start my new job the 23rd. My old job is not happy. It will be an interesting 2 weeks. A little sad, too, I've known some of my co-workers for the entire 10 years. BUT, I will just be across the street...heehee.

Great for Mondays...

Go to this site and type in your website URL (or anybody else's). Its hysterical. I have wasted most of a morning there.
Hold on to your ass, Fred!
Crazydogmama may have a new day job that will pay her enough $$ to quit all of the other jobs. Think of it! ONE JOB! What will I do? Drink more? Take more naps? Take the photography class I've been wanting to take for a year now??? Oooh, the possibilities are endless....

I am so excited I can't even sit still.
