Jupiter Posted November 24, 2022 Author Report Share Posted November 24, 2022 Spoiler So, setting up a new challenge thread didn't happen. A lot's been happening the last few weeks. I just finished around 5 weeks of training at my new job and honestly, I still feel totally unprepared. They gave us a ton of information, and then just sort of threw us into the work without much time to process or practice. I am technically still "in training" for the next couple of months, but I'm doing all the work on my own now, and I feel like I have no idea what I am doing and feel like I keep messing everything up. So that's been a little frustrating. Other than that, though, I do like the vibe of the place so far. The people here are so much nicer and easier to work with. The biggest problem right now is that the pay isn't great, so I've been applying to other jobs. Haven't heard anything back yet. I'm also considering doing some freelance work on the side as another option. Have also been dealing with friend drama again. I made a stupid mistake months ago that made one of my friends very, very mad and she told me that we were done and that she didn't want to speak to me ever again. Well now I've been banned from all future friend/family events, including events over the holidays, because she is "uncomfortable" being around me. I am... pretty hurt by it, and don't really understand where this animosity is coming from. I mean, my mistake was relatively minor (at least I think it was) and didn't hurt anybody. So, I guess I just don't really understand, and at this rate I may never. I was told that there is nothing I can do to fix things between us and that she is completely unwilling to reconcile, or even talk about it. Unfortunately, I'm starting to see a pattern with her, as I'm not the first person she's done this to. Still, I feel pretty awful about the whole thing, because I know if I hadn't been stupid, everything would be fine right now. And it makes me sad, because I'm not only losing a friendship that I valued, but I also have relationships with some of her family members and she's trying to cut me off from them too, as I see/interact with them mostly at said friend/family events. So, I won't get to see them anymore, either. Anyway, I have also been doing NaNo this month, which has been eating my brain. I've been able to stay mostly on track writing-wise, except for this week, which put me at around 4000 words behind. I'm hoping I can make up the words over the weekend. Pretty much all my good habits went to the wayside though. Although, at my doctor's appointment last week I found out I lost a total of 12 pounds since my last appointment. So, there is that. 1 2 Quote New Battle Log, Old Battle Log, Current Challenge 2022 Challenges: Challenge 1, Challenge 2, Challenge 3, Challenge 4 2021 Challenges: Challenge 1, Challenge 2, Challenge 3, Challenge 4, Challenge 5, Challenge 6 2020 Challenges: Challenge 1, Challenge 2, Challenge 3, Challenge 4, Challenge 5, Challenge 6, Challenge 7 Link to comment
