I got the job!

I had this whole post figured out: February blues, feeling blah(hhhhg.blogspot.com ... hehe), not feeling like writing lately ... so here's the deal. I keep opening blogger and just can't get my thoughts together to put anything down. But nevermind all that -- the insurance company I interviewed with last week and thought I didn't get the job with -- yeah, they called me back today. I got the job. I start March 28th. So I told them I'd take the job, and I put in my notice. Then if something promising comes up between now and then I'll decide which position I'd rather have. Because I know I'd rather have something in my field, but I know I'd at least like this in the meantime. It's something new and different, and that's what I'm looking for.

I've been bullied into joining TheFaceBook by a couple of people at work. If you're on it, let me know and I'll add you as a "friend." I'm amazed at how many people from high school are on that thing -- I've added tons of people (but only had to add me back in the last few minutes :D)

We went to the Diana exhibit on Sunday -- am I the only one who thinks her wedding dress was hideous and did nothing for her figure? She was beautiful, and wrapped up in all those yards of taffeta... And sequins? She could have had Swarovski crystals, diamonds ... but sequins? I won't even wear sequins. The best part of the exhibit (besides, you know, the actual exhibit, and the gems exhibit (mmmm, gems) and the Cuban Missile Crisis exhibit) was when Nana (Christen's grandmother) walks into the first room, which has the tiara in it, and everyone is hushed and reading or listening to their headphones and she the tiara, backhands Shea and exclaims, "Lookie at that! Girl, you need one of them!"

In the last week I've had some 10 searches finding me by the search "Terry Shivo," who I referenced once when they were deciding to remove the feeding tube (again) or not. But the funny thing is, I spelled her frigging name wrong! And still I get search upon search. People, her name is Schiavo. Terri Schiavo. And I don't know a thing about her, except that if I'm ever a vegetable, it better never come to a feeding tube 15 years down the road. This whole thing is ridiculous. Night all!

That whole thing certainly is ridiculous; I doubt she's opting for the feeding-tube lifestyle. Congratulations on the job.

shin shin cheri, which company? and what will you be doing? you'll have to tell me how you like it, since i don't start till the end of march. I'll be doing claims adjustments for new jersey, so watch out!

glomgold, i know -- i was telling my mother this past weekend that if she ever did that to me that i'd smite her from above once i finally got whereever i was going :D

Congrats on the new job. I have an English degree and I work in customer service for a Chinese restaurant furniture manufacturer. Go figure...

L said...

congratulations, dear :)

it seems that most of us never start working in the sort of job for which we studied, eh? I double majored in English Lit and Art History, and I am now a professional computer geek in the financial industry...

oh, and I completely agree about Terry S. -- what a sad story, and the parents are just unwilling to let her go peacefully...
