"Didn't You JUST Start Blogging?" Where Have I Been?

I know, I know. Trust me. I'm sorry!

It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you!!

Sooooo, let me tell you what happened...

I was working at a job (insert eye roll) and they decided that they would go ahead and lay off EVERYBODY! I'm going to be honest with you... I WAS HAPPY!!

No more having to wake up at 5 am to be at work by 7 am. No more 40 minute drives to work and almost an hour coming home. No more stressful situations of people making threats about losing my job if I don't hurry back to my desk because someone saw me walk to the break room... let me talk about this one for a second.

We were expected to be in our desk by 7am with all of our systems up and currently working on a certain file. Okay. What I didn't like is when its frowned upon when I want to get up and go make my tea. I would literally have to wait for an hour before it was "okay" for my "GROWN, 30 something a@* to get out of my seat! We would also have other managers come to the office from corporate and tell the other managers that they felt like firing 20 people on that particular day. Just out of the blue! So YES, I was happy and ready to get away from there!

But that happiness soon turned to fear because I have a little boy to raise and the bills did not care about my situation.


Two days before I was let go, I received a call from a recruiter letting me know about a job that is DOWN THE STREET from my home, like literally 6-7 minutes. I set up my interview for the following week and I got the job! And let me tell you: this job compared to my last one.. its like night and day. No strict set time for taking breaks, no threats, no more making me feel stress and on the verge of tears. They want you to succeed! They welcome ideas and make you feel like you're someone special.

So, that's what I've been up to! I'm still in my training phase at work, but I am BACK TO BLOGGING! I missed ya'll!!!

Take care everyone!!
