Ms. Melanie, How Are You Today?

My boss asks me that every morning, but this morning I hesitated because I just have way too much to talk about. I nodded and said, “I’m alright, just trying to keep dry”. Total lie. It’s raining outside today and it’s got my mind all over the place in every which way possible. I often put up a quiet facade at work so they don’t start asking me a bazillion questions. It’s easier that way. But here…I’m going to let it all out…

~ I’ve lost my motivation to come to my old job. The new job is lingering sweetly in my almost future and I’m craving it to no end. The boys won’t shut up lately about March Madness and it’s times like these where I’m very glad I’m leaving. Very Very glad.

~I’m embracing the joys of having me own place. I haven’t been sleeping well so I re-arranged my furniture and put all my Valentine’s Day stuff away (Gotta remember ONLY ONE holiday out at a time) and cleaned my kitchen joyously while watching True Blood Season 1 last night. I’ve never been more content with cleaning…That’s odd for my pack-rat self. I think I’m growing out of the “My Room is Messy because I’m Rebelling Phase”. Kickass!

~I want a tattoo. CJ actually has 4 tattoos of dragons and frankly I’m jealous. Hehe. I’m thinking it’ll be a butterfly because this part of my life has been all about change and I need to remember change is good…Very good. Maybe on my back down by my hip. I have to find out if I’m allergic to the dye they use…Must do this soon!!

~I’ve been going to the gym now for the past week and a half almost religiously and have barely lost any weight ON THE SCALE. It has actually gone up…BUT my Mom and everyone around me have said they can tell I’ve lost weight and my clothes are totally looser. Hmmm…I think me and that scale are going to have to have a talk! I guess I’m just losing inches, but I guess that’s a good thing?

~I’ve been scrambling to get some professional attire clothing for the new job. They said it’s mainly casual but the one girl near my age was dressed business causal so I’m going to copy her lead. Nice work pants and non-cleavage shirts. Kmart actually is having a huge $3.99 clearance event and I got some pleated pants for a steal.

~Tomorrow I’m heading in New York City for St. Patrick’s Day fun and in the next few weeks I’m heading to the Ninja Restaurant in Manhattan. I hope it’s all fun!

So much to do…So little time…Thank God for Coffee and Red Bull! =)

Tattoo's are always fun! Add words with the butterfly. maybe leaving the chrysalis behind.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I don't blame you for feeling uninspired with your old job. How exciting to be starting a new one, that is so much better, SOON!!

The St. Patty's day excitement in NYC sounds super fun and I hope you have a blast! I can't wait to hear all about it. xoxo

Pop Champagne said...

good job on going to the gym and keeping your place clean! if you do get a tattoo you have to take a pic and let us see!

Katy Mary said...

Sounds like you have so much going on Girly! I don't blame you for having no motivation for the old job, but that's so exciting that you got a new one!!!!! Have a happy st. pattys!

sarah @ design me daily said...

Your life is about to get so much better! All of this is exciting and hard to wait for! Oh, and tattoos are awesome and (be careful) addictive! And going to the gym totally makes you lose inches FAST, but your weight might go up because of muscle mass. no worries, lady, you're beautiful!

Tornadoes and Tigers said...

Let me know if you get a tatoo, i wish i was brave enough to get one!

Oh and Red Bull ... Thank God.

Dancing Branflake said...

Forget the scale! If your clothes feel looser than that's all that matters!

Krystal said...

You are gaining muscle weight!! good job :)

Jennifer said...

You're gaining because it's muscle weight and you probably are losing inches. All good.

You can't rely on a scale, ever, anyway. People get too attached to those things, anyway.

Sounds like a lot of good things are happening with you! I'm so happy!

<3

Chrissy said...

Yay, St. Patty's in NY!! Awesome! And, I have been thinking about getting a tattoo as well...not sure, yet...I'm a chicken...even though I've had a c-section and all...still freaking out about needles...
Totally understand you not wanting to goto your old job anymore...hang in there! It'll be over before you know!
Enjoy tomorrow! Hugs xxx

OneCraftyFox said...

Congrats on the new job!! Very understandable that you would have trouble focusing on the old now.

I hope you get some more sleep soon, and although I never got into True Blood, I absolutely LOVE Vampire Diaries!!

OneCraftyFox said...

PS I grabbed your blog button :)

Jen said...

I understand that feeling of not caring about an old job when the new one is going to start soon.
I may be moving within my job to another area(work in a day care). I'm super nervous about it if it comes true.
Have a great St. Patty's day!

drollgirl said...

you already have a new job?! that is AWESOME! and i bet you are ready to ditch the old one. hang in there...you will be gone soon!

*Simply Colette* said...

I hate when the scale does that! P.S I got told I look like Zoey Deschnel yesterday! Made my day :)

Heart Charlie said...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! It can be daunting phasing out of an old job, but extremely exciting to be starting a new one! Have fun in NYC! I have never been to the ninja restaurant, but it sounds really fun!

bananas. said...

You're going to Ninja New York? I went there & had so much fun!! Just to warn you, the staff hides & jumps out to shock you throughout the night lol.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Get a tattoo, do it! I have 3 and can't wait to get another one. I have a butterfly as well, for the same reasons, and I love it.

Little Ms Blogger said...

Sounds like you have a lot of fun stuff on your plate.

I'm a chicken when it comes to needles, but I think a butterfly on the hip would be cool.

Have fun in the City.

btd. said...

This is a lot to think about. And I know how it feels. Definitely the whole talk with your scale. I just had a talk with mine, it's been lying to me! :D

Kristin said...

I couldn't make through the day without coffee! I hope you're having fun in NYC!
