Recommended Posts

fortune favors the brave

Going with that meaning.  It’s what John Wick’s tat says.  Wait, you nerds know that already 😆.

 

I am not brave.  I want to be.  I think I’m broken.  I don’t want to be.  But how to put humpty dumpy back together?

 

Goal.

 

Yes you read that correctly.  
 

Goal.

 

Walk.  5 days a week.  Unless I get a job, then things will change.  I am looking, sort of.  Benefits would be nice.. Have an interview tomorrow.  We’ll see what we see.  Sadly, since I only have a Mrs. degree (🤪), I’m not qualified for much.  No one counts raising your children as work experience.  

 

Weight has held steady (ish) at about 132.4.  Which is surprising since who has a f#*@ to give about calories.

 

Will still be minimal. Stop by if you want to chat.  I’ll likely only be lurking in other threads.

Because they have no idea the  amount of organizing, creating, accounting, counseling, and badassness that the job requires.

 

Glad you are sticking with it.

Interview was pushed back a day due to interviewer dropping the drive shaft on her car......so we bonded over car issues.  (My clutch shattered halfway to work once)

Had it today.  It went well I think.  We’ll see what happens.  If they can give me a minimum of 30/week and more than $12.25........... 🤷‍♀️

When I was interviewing for jobs, I totally used homeschooling my child as a way to show that I could prepare and deliver programming for children, make adjustment to suit the audience, adapt quickly to unexpected situations, demonstrate patience and compassion with a frustrating customer, etc.

 

Hope your interview went well!

Hi Rinna! How'd the interview go? And how is walking?

 

PS You are brave by even stepping foot into a challenge and trying :D 


walking is going. The past 2 weeks did 19.4\20.4 miles, and last week we started the 30 days of yoga with Adrienne challenge.  But right now we’re doing m/w/f since we’re old stiff farts. 
 

Interview went well, but think they haven’t called because I wanted more than they wanted to pay. And there are people who won’t challenge their offer.

You still alive out there, Rinna?  Hope all is well!


I’m still alive.  Or maybe undead.  Not sure some days.  Been a lot of......angst, anger, depression lately.  Family discord.  Feels like I’m gonna shatter some days.....And existence itself is an effort on those days.  Not suicidal or anything.  Just don’t have any f%#*s left to give.

It went alright.  But no offer thus far.  If it’s meant, it’ll happen.  We aren’t in a bind, praise the Lord.  But after so long as a mom/housewife I wanted to help, even if it was in a small way.

 

Thanks everyone.  I def don’t feel brave, or worthy,  or worth a shit.  You’re kindness slays me. (In a good way)

Damn right. It was good practice anyway, and an exercise in courage too. If you are planning to apply for more positions, ask them for feedback so you know what to work on for next time.

:( This has been the way of the world for the last little while. Especially in the US - so stressful for everyone. I feel so much pain coming out of those little sentences. Please be kind to yourself. You are not forgotten. If you ever need someone to unload on, I am a good listener.
