:( I hope it was just a one day thing and that you feel better soon! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I hope it's just fatigue and not illness. - Spidra Webster
Sleep is best medicine. - Janet from FFHound!
thanks ffolks. Ima make some dinner and explore some Netflix for the night, then hot bath and back to bed. fingers crossed it goes away by Monday. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
up late binge watching Netflix. got showered this morning and finished the laundry. hoping to cook something edible from eggplants, watch more Netflix, then go back to bed. sent messages calling out sick to bike polo and volunteer meeting. sucks too b/c it's a gorgeous day. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Wow... uh... maybe it was... nope, I got nothin' #pumpkinfest
Lord do not let me get bated by these idiots.
Nothing worse than an apprentice bater. - Spidra Webster
They sound like master baiters to me... - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
i'm an idiot alot of the time, but i do my best to not bate/bait/bayte/baet anyone. - Big Joe Silence

One minute you're feelin pretty ok about yourself, and the next you learn how far out of your league your recent crush actually is. Dangit.
We need to turn this night back around y'all. So he's Mr Perfect, wtf ever. Ima go to the pub and convene with my own kind. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I've dated men who were "out of my league". Usually not for very long because it turns out we weren't compatible. Compatibility is more important than big leagueness. I hope you find someone who is a good fit for you. - Spidra Webster
Not to brag, but I'm rec league. - Andrew C (✔)
Thanks, Spidra. I'm just not in a super secure place lately anyhow. Andrew, word up! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
This might not have been a great idea. It's Friday night so the place is full of strangers. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

the benefit concert last night was my first big thing at the new job and it went pretty well if I do say so myself. bossman was happy, volunteers were awesome and complimentary about "pulling it off", the bands were sweethearts, and folks seemed to have a good time. maybe I can turn a corner now after getting a win under me.
there's not a whole lot of time to breathe, though, as next week is a big meeting and another event I had to pull together last minute, but I feel pretty good about things today at least. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
FFeed family: a dear friend of mine is headed west to explore opportunities in Seattle, Portland and the Bay Area. She'll be out there for a few months doing the Air BnB thing checking things out. She's an experienced web developer (primarily Ruby, but proficient in many others) not to mention an awesome person. Hit me up for the connect.
Her name is Angel Brown and is in my Linked In connections if you want to espy her creds. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
*Friday bump* she leaves for her trip on Saturday. she'll be in Seattle for a few weeks, then heading to Portland after that. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

One good thing I did today was introduce one of the bigwigs at my older job to a leading expert in the field she's trying to break into. Because I know people and I'm not at all bitter or petty or anything.
Well, hell. I just hit an emotional wall out of nowhere. I think it's just looking down the barrel of another week juggling two jobs and feeling like I can't tell if I'm getting anywhere worth going when I'm barely able to figure out what I'm doing. So 'sit here and cry' is what I'm doing now.
**hugs** Sometimes that's what you have to do, because dang, there's a lot going on. You'll sort it out eventually, but it sounds like your system needs an outlet. - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks Jennifer. I do think it's a decompression thing. It's just not helping me feel very competent unfortunately. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Yeah, that part is the pits. - Jennifer Dittrich
Courage, sister. As I recently said to someone else, sometimes the only way out is through. *hands you tissues & quietly sits nearby* - Corinne L
*hug* You know what? One week in, you can't tell if you're getting anywhere or not. That just takes more time. Can you cut yourself some slack for another week or two, and revisit the progress meter then? (and also: competent people know what they need at least some of the time. You need a good cry? Go have one!) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Ok, did some nurturing self talk and reached out to some lady friends for help. Just need to tackle one thing at a time. I know this is doable. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Thank you ladies! I swear sometimes y'all on here are my best rock. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Release of pressure is ok. - Janet from FFHound!
I'm sorry you're under so much stress. I find it's always tough when you start a new job. Stuff you'll master soon enough makes you feel like you're out of your depth, but you have to remember you'll master it. I'm glad you're calmer. - Spidra Webster
I know you're right. I am trying to give myself permission to adjust to this major change and everything that goes with it. Part of what set it off earlier was my bike has a flat and getting it to the shop is an ordeal, which then went down a doom spiral of why I don't have replacement tubes at home so I could take care of it myself, blah blah. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Oh man, thought I lost the ring I got from a Buddhist temple in Thailand but I dug through my fanny pack and found it in there. Musta come off when I was getting my wallet out. Shwew. This is why I can't wear jewelry y'all. Can't hold on to nice things.
Glad you found it! - Spidra Webster
It's been a long ass week, y'all. Mama needs a steak, then many hrs of sleep. Luckily @nationalathens got that first part covered. #athensga
For the record, I slept 15 hours last night and woke up feeling almost human again. Got the dishes and some laundry done, took a long hot shower, mended a couple things, then went to the Art Walk event. Tomorrow is volunteer work and polo. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

so yesterday was my first day at the new part-time little pay no benefits nonprofit gig and it was kind of awesome. aside from having to get used to a new routine of having to be somewhere at a certain time dressed in grown-up clothes and adjusting to a schedule switching between jobs during the week, and digging through the files and emails...
of the last three people who had this job going back to 2012 to try and get oriented, and there being no communal coffee in the office kitchen and no phones, and the first official outreach email I sent was met with consternation and terse chastening from one of our partners, and the first event I'm supposed to be supporting happens tomorrow. the rest of it was awesome, which was basically that I looked and felt fabulous for no reason. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
And that in the end is all that matters. - Steve C Team Marina
"no phones"? - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
inorite? no office phones. the org's contact number is the ED's cell. email, dropbox, Google docs, and texts is how they "do business" bc "only old people make phone calls" (actual quote). yeah, so I wonder why the dude is burning out and needs my help. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
consternation and chastening from introducing yourself? That set off some alarm bells in my head.... I'm glad the rest of it seems good though - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
No coffee??? Run away. - Laura Norvig
What Rudi said. But I'm glad you're feeling good anyway. - Spidra Webster
Now that I've got week one out of the way, I can start thinking about getting comfortable. Coffee stash, attitude adjustment strategies, earphones, y'know stuff people in offices have that I forgot about. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

And why is it beautiful people know other beautiful people almost exclusively? That's always bothered and bewildered me.

today in job transition hilarity: I have too much personal time off accrued for a half-time employee. 24 hours too much to be exact. so guess who is getting paid for 24 extra hours next week? that means my first paycheck at half-time will be higher than my regular paycheck used to be. just this once. still, that covers my ass this month.

Yay, ass coverage! - Spidra Webster

At a 24 hour Subway at 2am because life. Also not letting my friend drive home drunk. And boy drama. Sigh.
Good on ya for taking the keys. I hope you don't have to stay up too much later, though. - Spidra Webster

So so tired. I'm not in over my head, but I am definitely up to my neck with the two jobs and volunteering and not wanting to give up the pub life. It's not boring though. Also, Ima need more grown up clothes.
You're a busy woman. - Spidra Webster
Saw a wreck happen on Oglethorpe @ Health Sciences entry. My best to the man whose head hit the windshield but had to walk before 5-O came.
"5-O"... that made me smile. Hope dude is okay. - MoTO: Team Marina
A shame he could be seriously hurt by no fault of his own and not get help for fear of an unrelated issue. Hope everyone involved is ok.
