iatetheyeti: The Calm Before the Cataclysm

Yay that your landlord responded in time! I've got all my fingers crossed for you that you get the place you want! If all goes well, how long 'til moving day?

 

Re: the job moving stress, it's natural to be nervous about a new place and new people, but remember that some of the powers that be at your current place have shown confidence in you in the past. They trust you with a lot of things, and that trust was earned because you're a hard worker and you do your job well. The powers that be at the new place will see that in you too.

Honestly, out of the two it's the job transfer that's causing me the most stress. I'm terrified of what will happen there. New place, new people, maybe even a new position with which I have no experience. In comparison moving house is just awkward...

 

The job move will be ok. It's hard finding your place with new people, but you'll settle in soon enough.

 

And if it doesn't work for you then no problem, it'll pay the bills whilst you look for something better :)

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

I'm out of this current place May 14th regardless, so it'd be nice if I had a place of my own to go to!

 

I think that's partly what's keeping me from really freaking out about this whole thing. I can do my job and I can do it well, I've basically had no choice but to learn how to do that, and on my own as well, so even if I am placed in a new department I shouldn't be worrying so much because I know I can adapt. But here I am worrying anyway. I think it's my default setting...

Here's hoping! Heh, see, now that's exactly what I'm intending. I'll stay with the company for as long as I need to, but if the opportunity arises for me to jump into a job actually relevant to the career I want to pursue then I will absolutely take it.

You can do this, you just need to relax. Tell your brain that Stress mode, isn't the only mode, your mind works so much better when you're not straining yourself

Hey, just checking in and saying hi. How are things going? Hope it's well, but if not, I'm sending positive vibes proactively!

 

Appreciated, because things really are not going well. I'm trying to stay on top of it, but there are so many things coming at me from so many directions it's just overwhelming. I don't really know what to do with it all, and it doesn't help that a good portion of it is work stuff.

 

I just really don't know, you know? I kinda wish burying my head in the sand until things quiet down was an option...

Sorry to hear things are so rough again. At least it's not long now until you go, right? 

 Sending you positive vibes and virtual hugs. Stay strong, Yeti. You got this!

Man, that sucks. But like Tank and Rhovaniel say, you'll be gone before long, just put your head down and keep on truckin', you'll get there. It's what, 3 weeks? I'll continue to send positive vibes your way, and we're all here for you if you need a vent (publicly or privately, my PM is always open). You got this, my friend, and you'll be in a new place soon!

Appreciate it, guys, thank you :) 

 

I'm just counting down the days, trying not to stress too much (and mostly failing, truth be told), and essentially trying to focus on finding somewhere to live. Apparently the transfer has gone through, I'm just waiting on instructions for my next steps there.

 

...and I think someone sent me a curse over the phone. This is the second trans-Atlantic call I've had that's resulted in a four minute long voicemail that sounds like it should end with the creepy kid from The Ring crawling out of my phone. Whether it's an expensive and really random pocket dial or an extremely dedicated scammer, it's given me something to be amused about.

 

Got a day off of work tomorrow, and I'm going to use a decent portion of it to really evaluate things and see how best to move forward.

Oh no, did you not get the flat you liked? At least the transfer thing is good news.

 

Continuing to send all the positive vibes I can, Yeti. Just a little longer, hang in there!

I'm trying to sort out what's going on with that. Yesterday I got a voicemail from the agency telling me they didn't have my landlord's reference despite the fact that they'd already confirmed they did have it. So I've sent off an email to them to find out what's going on, and hopefully I'll get a straight answer at some point soon. At this point though I think it's safe to assume that I haven't got it.

Thats a whole bucket of suck, Yeti. I remain hopeful that you have, but it doesn't sound too encouraging. Fingers crossed it'll work out. Is meditation helping at all?

If it doesn't, I'm hoping to find something I can at least take a shot at next week.

 

The meditation is helping a little, although I kind of feel like most of the help it could give me is being cancelled out by how exhausted I am. Basically I'm dozing off for ten minutes at a time right now!

After giving some consideration to just not doing a challenge, I decided that it wasn't really in my best interests to step back from the one social outlet I have, so I skipped back on over to the Rangers for this.
