Working As: A PR Coordinator! The bad news is, it’s only a 3 month contract, so I’ll be back on the emotional roller coaster come August-ish. The good news is, the job rocks. It’s a fantastic opportunity with a great company, and I’m getting experience with some pretty major media that I would never get elsewhere. Also, they’re letting me play around with some social media stuff, which we all know warms the cockles of my heart. Because I’m a geek like that.
It’s pretty neat, this whole ‘employed’ thing. Let’s keep this going, shall we?
Consuming: Grower’s Pear Cider. ‘Tis very refreshing. I am not yet consuming supper, and I’m trying very hard not to think about that. Hungry.
Completing: Some design stuff I couldn’t really do on my work computer. For one, it doesn’t have photoshop. Second, it’s a laptop, which can’t really compare to my giant monitor (raised to perfect ergonomic height).
Thinking: That I never thought I’d willingly arrive at work at 7am, but it happened today. I just keep waking up before my 5:30 alarm, so why not?
Sad about: My groin, which I pulled doing side lunges at bootcamp yesterday. My knee, which is just grumpy about 3 impact-inclusive workouts in one week, for the first time in multiple years (note to self: get referral for MRI, two years late). My measurements, which I took today, and are the largest they’ve been since…ever. But I noted them down. I’ll take them again at the end of the summer, and we’ll see how it compares. I have high hopes, and I think bootcamp might just support those. Might need to hunt down my knee brace just in case.
Also, the fact that my job will likely get awesomer as time goes on, and as time goes on, I get ever closer to my contract end date of September 3rd. I just hope to heaven that I’m not spoiled after this!
Happy about: Getting to pitch international media (even if it’s just email). Being part of a team doing pretty cool things. The awesome hotel I booked for PAX. The possibility of doing an Oliver wine tasting tour later this month. The fact that Alex will be home soon to cook dinner (hungry!). Also, reading my notes.
See, I have two notes. One written to me by my cousin, maybe eight or so years ago, and one written by a classmate almost a year and a half ago. They were both written to me at times where I was being too hard on myself, and they both painted me in a much better light than I’m often able to see. I’ve only ever received two notes of this nature, and I keep both of them. I rarely pull them out to read, but when I do, I need it, and they put me back on track. So thanks to those two people.
Overall, I’m feeling pretty skippy this evening. Though that could be the Grower’s…
