Something New

Score: +2.5

I haven’t blogged in a bit, as the stress level of life reached an all-time high last week, but things have been good. My parents moved, I had a phone interview followed by an in person interview at Petco Park, and I’m heading into my teaching days at MM. Next two days I’m teaching new hires Oracle, which is the most critical step in their education. It is the implementation of everything we do. So it’s kinda critical that they get this right. I thought the interview went good. It was totally spy gadget shit getting to the interview room, and I saw a Padres star. Left fielder Melvin Upton Jr. 

I’m here in my bed, my chest pounding with anxiety. I feel nervous and excited. I also know there’s a lot of stuff I was doing that will go largely unattended for two days in the ticketing systems I manage. Catching up on all of that will not be fun. At all. 

But really, I like the opportunity. It gives me a chance to be in front of people, and talk. Two things I enjoy. Plus it’s kinda like helping people, which I also like. I just hope it all makes sense to them. I want this promotion. I’m fighting tooth-and-nail for it. I think I’m an obvious sold choice for the job. The thought has crossed my mind that I won’t get it. I would be devastated, but continue looking for more work. My life moves forward, regardless of obstacles. 

Mentally I’ve been on a bit of a roll. I haven’t missed a day in more than two weeks. Next paycheck is going to be good. Amanda and I are both doing swell. We’re on this consistency kick, and I really dig it. We have a good thing going right now. 

I hope I get a good night’s sleep tonight.
