How do I describe this blog?
A line from the movie "Old School" with a small tweak.
"My friends, this is a safe place. A place where we can feel free sharing our feelings. Think of my blog as a nest in a tree of trust and understanding. We can say anything here."

Back to Normal
For the past two months, I have been a little stressed out. It was part of the reason I took a break from the blog at the end of the year. And I am sorry if you had me becoming an alpaca farmer on the Mr. Shife mid-life crisis bingo card but it was just stress that drove me away.
The main reason I have been little unhinged is that I have been looking for a new job. And I know this is really going to shock you … it’s not a lot of fun trying to find a new place to park your butt for 40 hours a week. A few examples of the highs and lows I experienced while looking for a new gig:
·Why haven’t they called me back?
·Did my phone just ring?
·Did I give them the right number?
·Does this skirt make me look fat?
·Should I be wearing a skirt to interviews?
·OMG. Is that a typo in the thank you letter I just sent?
·Hitting refresh every 12 seconds on my email account.
·We can make it if I’m an Uber driver, right?
·Working on your spy skills as you hope your current employer doesn’t find out you are looking for a new job.
·Consider relocating to Alabama.
·That interview went really well. One day later: I probably shouldn’t have said that during the interview. One week later: That interview went really bad. One month later: I’m never getting another job.
All of that coupled with the usual stress of the holiday season and I was at maximum capacity.
Well, my stress levels returned to mostly normal last Friday as I got the call I have been waiting for. It was my doctor telling me that I didn’t test positive for Australian bat lyssavirus. I also heard from my new employer as they offered me a job. Yay!! It was definitely good news and hearing that I didn’t have rabies was pretty swell too.
At the end of the month, I will be starting my new gig. I’m pretty excited and glad I can now focus on something else to stress me out like why my urine smells like marshmallows.
Thanks for stopping by. I will talk to you soon.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
