I started working at a county shelter in June, and Jan 2nd will be my last day there. It was a mutual decision – I haven’t been happy there for awhile, because I know that I’m not working up to the speed that’s required, and I’m not willing to take shortcuts that some of my coworkers do. Not all. Some are just more efficient than I am, and are able to get everything done in the time allotted. But, they need someone who can do that, and I’m not it.
I turn 40 in a few weeks. I’ve kind of been freaking out about that, feeling like I haven’t accomplished anything, especially since I’m facing unemployment until I find another job.
And for the past several days, I’ve been sick, as have my roommates. So that’s been fun.
I’m still spending most of my online time over on Google Plus, so if you’re looking for more frequent updates, look over there.
