This past week has been very busy and mentally straining. Don't get me wrong - it was a GREAT week! I started my new job with First Legacy Investors, a company that is willing to pay for my MBA, and that is about as supportive as can be. I'm very impressed, and even more excited to dig into a new job. The problem is that I have never done the work before, and I have never worked in finance, so there are challenges there.

The problem is that I don't know everything, right now! Granted, my new boss and my co workers understand and embrace that, but I hate being the person in the room who has no idea what is really happening behind the scenes. I know I'll learn, and that it will take time, but something inside me just wants to explode onto the financial scene and impress the hell out of everyone. LOL

I start my second week tomorrow, and I'm going to walk in with the same attitude I had in the beginning, and I'm going to wow myself by Friday. Refocus.

Looking for the bright side

Dating sucks. Meeting new men, sitting across the table from them, trying to get to know them and trying to believe that they aren't pigs who want to get into your pants then leave - that sucks.

It's frustrating.

And it's disheartening.

I'm past the stage of being a friend with benefits, and good riddance to it. And I'm tired of people looking at me that way. How do I make it stop?

Pet Peeves, Off The Leash

People who say 'people that . . . " You immediately sound ridiculous and not credible as a person. Ugh! People are 'whos' not 'thats'.

Misspellings on common, everyday words, such as awesome (spelled in many cases 'awsome'). To be awesome, the object must create awe or be awe inspiring for some reason or another.

Misuse of words: 'Irregardless' is not a word - 'regardless' is.

People who don't treat others with respect. Two times recently, I have been on dates and the guys have referred to me as 'bitch'. Trust me, I don't dispute the fact that I can be a bitch if I need/want to, but really? Let's think of another adjective people. And it's in passing - not that I've done anything bitchy. It's more like this: "So I said to myself, I should give this bitch a chance", or (and this is my favorite), "Whatever, biatch."

Anyone care to shed some light on this stupidity?

Work Funnies

Classic Work Day Funnies

So this customer's mom is having surgery, so he's pushing a new roof back a couple weeks.

Ran: "So, can we just nail your mother to the roof? And if you go that route, can we do the work?"
Ko: "Well that's only about a 10 year shingle there."
Ron: "But if we nailed your mother to the roof, how much rain could she stop? Compared to our product?"
Ran: "Nailing your mother to the roof is not a wise decision. You should probably go ahead and let us do your roof."
Jessie: I've got nothing, but I'm damn impressed.
