So the manager I interviewed for in July emailed me on Thursday. He has the same position open, and he wanted to talk salary and benefits. In July, I was ready to move on from my job. Now I’m not feeling the same. It has been 3 months since I looked for a full-time job.
Anyway, he hasn’t emailed me back yet, and I don’t think I will hear from him. I responded with basically a one sentence email saying I was still interested. He could probably tell that I wasn’t enthusiastic about the job. I just wanted to know the salary they would offer. I doubt it is as much as I make now. They are a nonprofit. That says it all.
I would love to work for a nonprofit, but they don’t offer a very valuable benefit: working from home. It’s hard to top that. Plus, it is a salaried position. I don’t like salaried work because I would work way more than 40 hours a week and not get paid ‘fairly.’ I know myself, so that’s not going to work. AND I have the part-time job that takes a lot of my time so I’m not sure I could commit to a time-consuming full-time job and still work my PT job. My PT job offers valuable experience, so I don’t want to give it up.
That’s that. It was weird to hear from him after all that time, but I kind of thought it would happen. I bet their first choice didn’t work out. Oh well.
TMI ALERT TMI! TMI! TMI!
I didn’t get my period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!%^1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Okay, so it is only this one time, and I’m only five days late, but I’m NEVER late. Never, ever, ever. I’ve never skipped a period. It looks like the stress of having two jobs is paying off in more ways than one. 😉 I didn’t get my period. I cannot stress how happy this makes me. I finally feel like the universe is looking down on me and saying, “I’ll give this girl a break.”
I think it’s stress. I’ve been working nonstop, and I haven’t been sleeping much. Who knew there would be a wonderful benefit to that? Unfortunately, I will probably get it next time. Bummer. But I’ll take what I can get.
I just want to shout to people: I DIDN’T GET MY PERIOD. But that would be strange. I wish I would never get periods again. I can’t wait until menopause hits. Unfortunately, I have a couple of decades for that. 😦
I should probably look into birth control to see if it would lessen my periods, but I’m afraid it would make the situation worse. I’ve never been on birth control. My periods have only been troublesome the past 2-3 years so I never seriously looked into trying to skip it. If I worked outside of the house, I would have been to the doctor and requested something. But since I work at home, I just deal with it.
Anyway, just wanted to share my GREAT news. 🙂
Update: I did end up getting my period 6 days late. Bummer. I’m not going to erase the above because I want to show the joy I would feel without my period.

Planner update: This week’s layout in my neutral Erin Condren planner:
Plans for the Weekend: I get my professional photo taken on Saturday morning. I’m a little nervous. The timing is the 1920s or something near that time and women wore dresses all the time back then, so I probably have to wear a dress. I LOVE wearing maxi dresses (lol), but what if the dress is too short and shows my unshaven legs???! As long as my legs aren’t in the photo, I don’t really care. They provide wardrobe and accessories. I hope I get to pick something I like.
Other than that, I’m working. I’m getting up at 5 AM on Saturday and Sunday to work full days. I gotta do what I gotta do.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend! 🙂
