Another Day

I want to thank everyone for their kind words and advice. I know I’ve been a big suck. I mean, lots of people don’t have jobs, right? And my only problem is that I am way out of my comfort zone and doing something I hate, and eating too many cookies in the process. (I’m never going to fit into my wedding dress by next fall!) I guess I just don’t want to grow, which isn’t a very spiritual thing to say, is it?

We learn a lot about ourselves when we are put into situations that are difficult. For example, I know several people who are very smart, but for some reason just aren’t good at simple things. For example, quanta can’t cook or do simple home repairs even if his life depended on it. Well, this week I have discovered that I am one of those types of people too. Apparently this was actually well known to my friends and family, but no one clued me into it. *sigh* I’m not good a social interaction with strangers, or with really simple administrative tasks, like answering the phone and putting people on hold. But give me some complex problem related to my studies, or ask me about ancient history, etc. and I’m great. I guess I just have to carry on and try not to cry at work. Although so far I’ve cried every night when I’ve gotten home.

On a much happier note, today marks the one year anniversary of my engagement to quanta. :love:

  1. *grin* I’m not good at social interaction either, and I work the front desk and switchboard for North America’s largest convention/trade show contractor. I have over 40 incoming lines and we deal with clients like the Republican Party, Microsoft, Disney, NFL, Fiserv, and many many other multimillion dollar corporations.

    I guess what gets me through the day is that I work with a lot of very nice people who make things easier.
