2 attempts to quit smoking,
and one new girlfriend later…
and I have returned!!
Hold your applause everyone, I’m not worthy.
There is no possible way that I can fill you all in on every single thing that’s been happening in my absence, but I’ll do my best at trying.
I’m still working at my same job, only now I’m hunting for either a part-time job on the side, or for a new career altogether. I’ve been promoted 3 different times with 3 different changing schedules, and it’s left me unhappy. I’m now opening up the office Monday-Thursday at 5am in the bloody morning, and working 8 hours until 1pm. I loathe this schedule completely… I’m not a morning person in the slightest and even though I’ve been in this routine for the past 3 months, I STILL haven’t adjusted to it. And on top of that, I’m feeling extremely under appreciated and overworked at my job. I’ve been spending the past couple weeks looking for other work, even though I’m very torn about it. I love what I do at my job and I love who I work with, and I love that I have a guaranteed 3-day weekend… I just hate the waking up early and lack of happiness. I’ve tried changing up my schedule so I don’t have to open, but my supervisor won’t budge on the matter.
Oh well, it’s not helping anything to rant about it, either. It is what it is. At least it’s a job, and for that I’m thankful.
And, yes, I DO have a new girlfriend.
If you recall a few of my blog posts from the past, she has been mentioned in them.
We’ve known each other for 6 months and we just celebrated our 3 month anniversary on the 16th, and I couldn’t be happier with her. She has a job (which that alone makes her an improvement over the last girlfriend I had), she has motivation and drive and passion and she’s responsible and respectful, and she has a great personality and sense of humor 🙂 plus she’s absolutely beautiful and makes my heart skip a beat, which is also a plus 😉
We’ve been arranging to move in together some time in the next few weeks when we have sufficient funds and nobody could possibly imagine how excited I am about it and how much I’m looking forward to it. It’ll be the start of something wonderful.
We’ve been to quite a few concerts together, including one of my favorite bands, Lola Black.
And, to top everything off on a positive note, I’ve successfully quit smoking! It took me a couple tries, but the 3rd time was a charm 🙂 with that on top of losing nearly 70 lbs, I’ve never felt more healthy in my life. Tomorrow marks one month without a cigarette and I’m only going on stronger from here. I regret ever starting, and I loathe and hate my ex for ever convincing me to pick up the habit.
I’m not sure what else to report on; everything above is pretty much everything that’s been happening lately in a nutshell… but I won’t slip up on my blogging again. It SHALL continue more frequently.
