My coworker Frances is a weird one, but I love her to death. She’s always full of sayings (some more outlandish than others!!), but one kind of echoes in my head. She’d rather be tired than broke. Which I can relate to, but sometimes you just gotta rest, you know?
Anyways, work has been interestingly busy with my meeting with district manager, Shannon, on Thursday and the weird buzz of information that everybody now seems to know. Casual remarks about “when I’m manager” and offhand advice on things that I’ve already learned to do. I appreciate the encouragement the leads have been giving me — Josh even called me “his girl” after dominating the juicer during BOGO today. Bahaha. The decision was between me and another coworker that was hired the same time as I was. It’s a little weird to work with him now that everybody is spreading rumors about me moving up (true as they may be). Still… this dull spotlight is making me nervous, but I’ll be fine. I’ve been noticing the eager friendliness some TMs have been directing at me lately; I have to train myself to be a litte more stern with them now. I’m not looking forward to their resistance.
School is also looming over my head again and I feel a little more confident with my ability to cope. I’m determined and feel sharper and I hope I can speed through this fall with ease. So many things have changed this year, I’ve made some amazing new friends, stumbled upon more opportunities, and yeah… I’m just really grateful.
I’ve also had give up alot of my free time, learned to live with a constant fatigue, and lost my father figure this year as well.
Just reflecting here, I guess. Hope all you are well.
