Good morning people!!!
And HAPPY NEW MONTH!!! I started writing this yesterday but I was so depressed… and it was supposed to be a happy post so I kept it aside. I have a lot to be grateful for, but I’ve got so much shit in my head I need to deal with…
I don’t know if I am the only one who felt like throwing a party when August ended.. It’s strange, but August was simultaneously my best and worst month of the year so far. So much happened! It started out great with the outings and socializing… then I fell seriously ill and had to deal with that. I attended so many interviews that I became an expert on the process. I even considered writing a book for employers and calling it “Employees guide to lowering self-esteem: How to drive potential employees to suicide”.
August also gave me a lot of man trouble… it was crazy! For someone as single as I am, I had (and am still having) a disturbing amount of Man-trouble. No one is talking to me on the phone late at night, whispering sweet nothings in my ear… there’s no guy making my toes curl beneath the sheets… I pay my own bills (with the help of my siblings), and I take myself out to nice places whenever I can afford it. So how the hell did I end up with man-trouble?
It’s one of the shitty things I’m dealing with right now… hopefully, I’ll be good soon.
Anyway, remember how I mentioned that I have a surprise for you guys today? Before some of you start getting excited, it’s not a video of me twerking. And no, it’s not a confession… I didn’t sit on my pastor’s laps. The dude is slim… I might break his legs if I do.
Well, I’m pleased to announce that today is my very first day of work!!!
*waits for applause to die down*
Yes people… one of those many interviews and exams FINALLY resulted in something good and I am officially a “working class woman” 😀
I picked up my appointment letter on Friday and started work this morning. I was a crazy mixture of emotions… excited, happy, nervous and scared shitless.
Why was I scared? Well, even though I’ve been screaming about how I want a job, I think having a steady job takes a lotta hard work and discipline. This is not industrial training where I can show up hours late and flash my tits to my boss so that he pardons me… this is not NYSC where I can decide not to show up at all as punishment to the government for making me serve. This is real life work… I’ve always admired people who have the discipline to wake up every morning, get dressed and just go to an office to face stress.
I’ll be working as a Human Resources Analyst in a consulting firm. It sounds like a really big deal right? I love how the job title sounds so important… even though I’ve never resourcefully analyzed a human being before. Truth is, right now, I can’t even say exactly what the hell it is I’ll be doing. But I’m in a nice little office… it’s a temporary office till they clear a space for me. I don’t really want them to clear a space. I quite like being here alone. Only down side is that my fingers are frozen cos of the air conditioning. Hopefully, they thaw out before I get home…
The people here are nice to me… too nice. And they are all smiling. In fact, it’s a scary kind of niceness. I feel like I’m in that Stepford movie where everyone was pleasant and acting like a robot. Or maybe it’s just the crankiness in me… maybe by the time I work here for a while, I might start smiling all the time too.
God forbid though… we can’t afford to turn this blog into a happy blog can we?
I’m rushing this and I might not have time to read through properly so pardon the dis-jointed-ness of the post. I’m currently in the middle of my induction… it’s interesting but I’m waiting for the question and answer session at the end. Cos alls I wanna is;
Where the free lunch at?!
Have a blessed new month people!
