Bullet points

I'm too lazy to write a real post today. Instead I bring you Bullet points! Full recap of my brother's visit coming soon!

  • At my job we are switching servers for our e-mails. It is a mess and I haven’t been able to check anything ALL day. It’s driving me crazy.
  • On top of that work is still stressing me out. So bad that my gastric reflux is back in full swing and Tums have become my new best friend.
  • Even though I hate my job, it has made me stronger and able to say “No” a lot more often in my personal life. It is finally teaching me how to put myself first in life.
  • This weekend is the first weekend in months that I don’t have a lot planned. It will be devoted to looking for jobs and sending out my resume.
  • I’m still not sure what I should do next, so I’m sure my search will be random.
  • I’m hoping to get better results this way.
  • This past weekend was a blast. I was so happy to see my brother and or little get together turned out to be a pretty big party
  • Everyone seems to like his girlfriend. I give her a lot of credit because she held her own the whole weekend. It’s one thing to meet someone’s family, quite another to meet everyone that is important in his life.
  • I think my brothers have a deeper respect for me after this weekend. Especially after showing off my beer pong skills. I lost every time, but held my own throughout the game.
  • My mother decided to try and belittle me at every moment during the party.
  • People have finally realized the hell she can put me through, and how unfair she treats me compared to my brother.
  • She still has no clue that she does this.
  • Other than that this weekend was a blast!

I really think that every job teaches us something even if it's just that we are not a good fit for that job. Learning to say "No" is definitely a good skill to have!

I'm glad the weekend went well for the most part.

yes mam, i do a lot of media buying. as the lowly assistant, i don't make the final decision on what we can buy, but i do all the research, pricing for budgets and make the recommendations on what publications to use. i love/hate it. i think i'd like it more if i wasn't an assistant and had more control over my job.

how is your job search going?

I am glad you had fun with your brother. Maybe mom just has a problem realizing that you are actually an adult. I think that happens a lot with parents and adult children.
