Can My Day Get Any Better?

Not only have I fit into a pair of pants that I haven't been able to wear in a while, but my radio FINALLY works in the new cubicle area. I can listen to Aunt Wendy all day long and piss off Sidekick who absolutely HATES that I listen to hip-hop music at work.

Now...if I can only get my boyfriend to stop acting like a little bitch my day would be perfect. ;)

P.S.: Why are so many of the blogs I lurk around on going private?

Not to Toot My Own Horn But...

Toot, toot. This is the nicest thing anyone has ever said or written about me. It's true that we never realize how we affect people.

Conversations and feelings that may have been, OK, WERE inappropriate for work were all laid out on the floor of room 403, and if the walls had ears, my oh my, what they would say!

I truly needed to hear something like this after another battle with Sidekick, who was given another promotion. So basically not only have I been dealing with the same old BS, but now am dealing with a megalomaniac in training. Really, it doesn't get to me so much because when I leave work I don't think about it or her, but sometimes, I just want to spend the entire day in the staff bathroom and play Tetris on my cell phone to hide out from her. I know that every workplace has their own politics, but I figure that if I can deal with her, everywhere else will be a piece of cake.

My mantra is now: 2 months until Argentina. I WILL hold out for that long!

New Year

The older I get, the more comfortable I become with myself and the people around me. Weird, I know, but there is always room for improvement. Last year was really great. It is proof positive that once you set your mind on specific goals and work towards them, they are achieveable. Case and point: apartment.

So in true resolution fashion, these are some of the goals that I am working on for this year.

1. To get a better job. To clarify: I like my job and hate my boss. I would like to find something where I can learn and grow in a positive environment. I put some feelers out, so we'll see what happens. I am not in a rush though, I want to make it to my vacation first.

2. Lose weight. How am I going to compete with the amazing bodies on the beaches in Brazil? Did I mention the side trip to Brazil for Carnival during my trip to Argentina? Dancing, drinking and just crazy partying. Scary for someone semi-middle aged.

3. Spend quality time with my niece. She is too little now to appreciate it, but I want to make sure she grows up confident in herself and her style and intelligence. These are some of the things that I was embarrassed to have during the elementary and junior high school years, that developed and flourished in high school and then in college. No I don't care what people think and my life is much better for it.

I'm sure that as the list goes on, things will be added and as things are completed they will be replaced. For right now, this is all I want to handle.
