Really #mnwild?!?! C’mooooooon let’s win this shoot out.
Just registered for another party at #sxswi. Uh yea, I’m excited for this conference.
I’m kind of scared to look at my bank account and see the recent damage.
HUSKIIIEEESS! RT @HuskyHockey: GOAL! Huskies score on the pp. Hanowski from Jensen and Roe at 9:21. Huskies lead 3-2 with 9:37 left in 3rd.
I’ve never had to deal with storm windows. Ever. But being that I live on “historic” Grand Ave and all these buildings are “historic” (read: ancient and OLD) I have storm windows.
I had maintenance install all the storm windows that weren’t in when I moved into my place. Because I didn’t know how the heck to get them in there. Also, because half my windows were painted shut. No joke.
Apparently it’s rather windy out there because conveniently, just as I’m falling asleep, I hear a crash that jolts me awake. The wind knocked my storm window out. I’m going to wager a guess that it wasn’t installed very well to begin with.
I tried to open my window to attempt to fix this, but remember how I said my building is old and windows were painted shut? Yeah, this window only opened half way. I did my best to get the storm window back in place, but I’m sure it will eventually come crashing down.
Oh, did I mention that this window is right next to my bed? Yep. Right next to my bed.
Yet another reason why I need a boyfriend. To put my storm windows in when they come crashing down and scare the crap outta me.
Maybe this is why my back feels so jacked up today. I’m just going to go ahead and blame the window.
A short lived rant on feeling under appreciated and wasting my time. http://post.ly/1dTgY
I’m not a fan of publicly complaining. Sure, I’ll throw out a vent or two, but they are always short lived. I greatly dislike-slash borderline hate- seeing people repeatedly complain online, especially in the Twittersphere. It’s as if nothing good ever happens for some people and they only feel the need to complain with every other tweet they send out. It’s annoying. There, I said it.
So since I don’t like to complain on a platform that hundreds of people see, I chose my blog to let out a little rant. Mostly because I can see the number of people who view my site and it’s pretty small in comparison the number that could potentially see my tweets [no, that’s not a euphemism nor is it meant to be dirty].
I digress. The point of this post is to be able to let out my current frustrations. I’m struggling to balance many things, especially workloads. It’s difficult to work a full time job that keeps me pretty busy and on my toes, and then take on side projects for past employers. It’s even more difficult when I put in all the work for them and give them all the things they ask or want or need, only to be pushed to the backburner when I ask them for a little bit of information so that I can do my job for them even better. It makes me question whether or not I made the right decision to take on extra work. Sure, it’s nice to feel appreciated and told that the work I am doing is fabulous, but the problem is that they don’t know anything else, they don’t know anything about social media and that’s why they hired me.
I keep thinking that I’m way behind in my work and that I’m totally dropping the ball. But when I sit down to get the work done, I realize that it’s not me who is dropping the ball. I asked for information but haven’t received it. I can’t help that. I did my part, I got what needed to be done asap. It’s all well and fine to get excited over the prospects of what can be done and the cool things we can try, but when I actually deliver what leads up to these cool things, only to see it fall to the wayside… well I can’t help but think that was a giant waste of my time.
Now I’m left pondering whether or not this extra income is really worth the frustrations and stress. In all reality, it really isn’t. Yea sure it helps the monthly bills but for the work I’m doing, I’m not sure if I’m being fairly compensated. Have you had a similar experience? I’d love to know how you handled it, what you did or what changed.
- Getting free passes to movies.
- Winning random things on Twitter. I mean really, it’s the simple things in life.
- Having my friends come over for my housewarming party. It was a blast. It got a little crazy. And there was a sleepover in my living room with my bed moved out there. I loved every minute of the night.
- Seeing my friends be successful in life, in their careers, in their passions.
- Getting a raise at work.
- Planning vacation with some pretty cool chicas. Baseball and the beach. And of course, beer.
- My girls. You know who you are. You are fabulous. My life would suck with out you. #ForReal
- Ruby. the family dog. she’s just so dang cute.
- Happy hours with new friends. Because who doesn’t need more friends, especially if you have common interests. Like drinking beer.
- Familia. They’re pretty cool and always make me laugh. Even if I threaten to shank my little sister for getting me sick [but no shanking on Sundays. House rule.]
- Reuniting with old friends. Especially ones that I’ve known forever.
I’m sure there’s more. And the things that make me happy change all the time, just like my life.
So do more of what makes you happy… what am I doing? Living my life. Going out with friends. Spending money when I should probably save it. Not having regrets. Making mistakes. HAVING FUN. Living the life I love.
What makes you happy? What are you doing that makes you happy?
Oh how I’ve missed the Warblers. #swoon #Glee
