Good morning people!!!
Yeah, so I’m back here again today… I got to the office too early. After whining and bitching about work yesterday, I’m sitting here, already itching for the next challenge. The thing I’ve been working on for the past one week is finally done. I put everything I had into that project… it’s got my blood, sweat and cum in it. It gave me crazy days and sleepless nights but I’m proud of the work I did. And I should get results today…
Meanwhile, I had to seriously edit my last post this morning… I said some things I probably shouldn’t have, and even mentioned names I shouldn’t have. One friend warned me nicely about it, then Nkiru called and threatened to write my resignation letter herself if I didn’t change what I wrote.
I honestly meant no harm… I’m used to telling you guys almost everything! But I guess I shoulda known better. I keep forgetting that things are different now. I can’t be spewing half the nonsense I used to… my ex used to tell me that my big mouth would one day get me slapped or fired. Right now, I would rather be slapped than fired…
So what the hell would we be talking about?
Maybe I should just blog about food and love/relationships and STD cures from now on. Or maybe I should change this blog into one of those ‘Dear Ngozi’ blogs where people can talk about their problems and I can advice them…
Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m actually a bit upset… very upset with myself for being so silly and upset with all the unwritten rules of the corporate world.
And it’s more painful because I’ve been on such good behavior too… I’ve been quiet and well behaved and very hard working. I’ve told no disgusting sex jokes, I haven’t imitated anyone and even when people gbagaun, I don’t laugh in front of them. I always wait till I get home… Generally, I’ve been a good girl.
A few days after I resumed, my boss (the one who reminds me of Jesus) remembered that I have a blog. It wasn’t something I planned to ever mention… somehow, it was in my CV because my brother decided that my old CV was the reason I was so unemployable. So he edited it. By the time he was done, even I wanted to employ me… I looked so damn good on paper!! The CV-me had great interpersonal skills, she could cure cancer and she could even speak basic French. Who woulda thought that “ménage a trois” could pass as basic French?
Anyway, while trying to convince prospective employers of my great writing skills, my bro mentioned that I own a blog. This was the same brother who once told me that my blog should be rated-18 (VSNL)… smh…
So, when I went for the first interview, I went with the edited, blog-less copy. But as luck would have it, they printed out the blog-CV I had sent to their e-mail address. And every other interview or test after that, they had that copy.
Only my Jesus boss noticed it though… and like I said, a few days after I started, he remembered it. He asked, “So, what do you blog about?”
I was this close to saying, “Mostly God stuff, and the Holy spirit and the struggles I face in my Christian race to heaven.” Instead, I just said, “Nothing much sir… I no longer write so often.” Lord knows I didn’t want him here reading my crap.
It’s quiet today and I’m jobless. I think I’m going to hunt for work again. Or maybe I’ll just sit here and think of ways to “move this prestigious organization forward”… just like it says in my CV… 😉
Have a nice day people!
