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.

The surprise?

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!

    …in unrelated news, I saw a hotel named after Oreofe on my way back from Illorin. I think it was around Ijebu-ode… sounds silly I know, but I was a bit excited. It’s such an uncommon name! 😀

Lydz · September 2, 2013 at 5:02 pm

Praying for some miracles myself on that front:) BTW I love the way you write you crack me up ever time with your choice of words hahaha keep on being you you hear!

    admin · September 3, 2013 at 2:34 am

    Wow… then you can’t imagine what this comment means to me…
    Thanks so much Lydz! And I’m not going to pretend to be an expert or anything, but the truth is, you need people’s help. Someone has to help you at least get a foot in the door… all you need is a chance at an interview or test or exam, then the rest is up to you. I wish you all the best dear… and thanks again!!

      Lydz · September 3, 2013 at 9:24 am

      Thanks hun! I need a change not quite feeling what I am doing at the moment need to go back to what I have a passion for so will definitely take your advice on board to get back to where I belong:) Time to stop procrastinating and be pro active!

Olanrewaju · September 2, 2013 at 7:17 pm

Congrats dear.
I guess we all have something to celebrate eventually.. Today’s ma first day @ my 3rd job, pursuing my career this time.
So remember I asked for a chance, in the last post, maybe we sync and might just work around something.
Let’s do the long stretch night calls and overtime your toes curling beneath them sheets.
Just being naughty tho’ but sincerely I’d like an inch… Who knows u might eventually want me going the mile…

    admin · September 3, 2013 at 2:39 am

    LMAO!! First of all, congrats dear… that’s great news. So maybe we really are in sync…
    How was your first day?
    But how are we gonna manage the long night talks if we both have work in the morning? And how do you know YOUR toes won’t be doing some curling too? 😉

      Olanrewaju · September 3, 2013 at 2:59 am

      Well I’m quite experienced wit the Day 1 thing, just the usual silent, attentive and smiling routine… The shell eventually cracks as time goes on.
      Regarding the long nite calls, there’s something called timing and restrictions, I’m sure whatever starts from 12 shud end for 1:30…
      Well wit the toes curling, they say one good turn deserves another… *winks* what I offer u’ll appreciate, and eventually reciprocate the gesture.

lajour · September 2, 2013 at 7:21 pm
