I haven't done a personal post all year. I don't know why - I guess I haven't felt much like talking about myself. It's weird tho, I've had a bunch of stuff going on. Does anybody even read this thing & care about my exploits anymore? Let's see...where to begin...
The Job - well, I'm still there. I interviewed for a laboratory equipment sales position a few months ago, but I pulled out of the process because it didn't feel right. If you're keeping count, that's 2 hiring processes that I've pulled out of since I've been in this job. I'm so afraid to walk into another bad or less-than-stellar situation that I have really paid attention to my intuition. So far, my intuition has told me to not to leap. But at the same time, I'm not happy. I don't enjoy what I do anymore & it has severely affected my productivity. I need to find some type of way to get my enthusiasm up. I'm going to start my days with meditation & see if that helps my moods.
The Business - I had my first speaking engagements! I gave two presentations at my alma mater to a student group & they went great. I really enjoyed doing them & I know I'm making the right move with the business. Launching my career blog is going to take a little longer than I expected, but that's ok. In the meantime I'm working on the paperwork side of my business & getting that site set up.
The Race - In case you forgot, I'm doing the Green Bay Half-marathon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Have you checked out my fundraising page? Click here! I've been training hard & my body is definitely changing. I'm getting faster & my fitness/endurance has gone up, which is great. I am 62% of the way towards my fundraising goal & I've got 7 weeks left. If you haven't donated yet & would like to, please check out the click or the widget at the bottom of this page. Every donation is greatly appreciated!
The Personal Life - this part of my life has gone through the most changes in 2012. I started the year by having a party at my place, and at the end of the night I was drunk but coherent enough that I was sending a drunk text to...the Vegas dude. What did it say? "I still love you", sent precisely at midnight his time. His response? "I don't know what to say". Yeah...the next morning as I nursed a hangover, I also nursed some hurt feelings at his response. After 2 weeks of no communication, we finally had a heart to heart...and realized that we wanted to be together. And now I'm a happy woman :-) He's great & so is our relationship.
Everything is great. Family is good, tho I miss them. I haven't been home since Christmas. Minneapolis is still awesome, and thanks to the mild winter I was very social. The only less-than bright spot in my life is the job part...but I'm sure that will sort itself out soon enough.
What's new with you?
