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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
