I have to confess about a problem I have. I just can’t seem to get my sorry butt into bed at a decent hour.
Only twice since I’ve been back on this side of the globe have I been in bed by midnight. Even then, only barely (11:30pm the last two nights). It is definitely beginning to wear on me! I can totally relate to this picture from icanhascheezburger.com:
This last week has been especially hectic. I have a lot of people to catch up with and projects to pick back up again now that I am home.
Oh – and there’s the little matter of my being asked to re-apply for the promotion I was denied a while back. Which I found out about on Monday. I survived a crash course of three interviews on Tuesday – and felt pretty okay about them, too. Then the next bomb was dropped: If I end up getting this job – I have to leave for three weeks of training. Starting this coming Monday.
So, um, yeah. Stress? I has it.
I’m not even done unpacking from my Kenya trip. Now I have to get my life organized and prepare to leave again? Of course, it’s only if I get the job this time. Which I won’t find out until…… Friday morning.
I completed my last interview today with the sales director and now a coworker (who is my “competition”) and I just sit back and wait for 24 hrs.
I think this whole process is a test to see how flexible I can be, and how I handle myself under a lot of pressure. 🙂 The answer to that question is: A lot of chocolate. And carbs. And really corny knock-knock jokes.
