The JOB

 

Hi World,

Last we spoke (six months ago -_-), I mentioned that I had just accepted a new position! Turns out it has been one of the best decisions I could have ever made. I absolutely love what I do. I could have done with not having to start at the bottom of the totem pole, but alas it keeps my ego in check.

I work for a public relations agency that specializes in enterprise technology. It’s a wonderful combination of extremely nerdy, techy subjects and the fuzzy writing, strategy and brainstorming that I enjoy. I think it suits me very well and I’m happy to report that I have zero inkling of ever wanting to do anything else 🙂 I will admit that I’ve let my life become all about my JOB. I talk about it incessantly, and yes, it’s annoying.

I’ve let this new job consume my life for a few reasons:

  • It’s a bitch of a commute so I feel like I have little time to do fun things during the week
  • It’s easier to say you have work to do than put in the effort to see friends
  • I suck at dating and am tired of meeting the same kind of guy over and over again
    • Disclaimer: I know not all men are like this, but most are so noncommittal and aloof that I literally can’t even.
      • yes, “literally can’t even” is a phrase that I use in all seriousness
  • I am lazy

After a few months of getting into the groove of work and over the hump of the holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years) I decided to be more social. I’ve been actively accepting all invites to hangout with friends and have even made some great new friends at work. AND I decided to hop back into the dating game with two feet. This is San Francisco, so of course I signed up for some dating apps. Let’s not get crazy and actually meet people IRL, who does that anymore?
