A Quarter of a Century… For This.

Hello! I come to you on a Thursday morning, tired as usual, struggling to stay hydrated, 13 tabs open in my mental browser and confused as to why the person Iโ€™m emailing and receiving voicemails from is a bit on the hostile side.

This weekend I turn the age… of a quarter of a century. And this is my life.


I woke up yesterday not feeling that great but I think itโ€™s just because of my lack of good and consistent sleep. That or Iโ€™m just getting old… either or.

I also woke up with relief that my manager would be back from vacation and I wouldnโ€™t feel as confused all the time during work.

During the day yesterday, I was notified of the worsening of the weather over the coming weekend. What I had planned to be a celebratory weekend… is basically cancelled.

No caption… ๐Ÿ˜›

Because of that, I think Iโ€™m just postponing my birthday to my half birthday which is in August! Iโ€™m not feeling the icy weather. Snow is fine, but not the ice and temps below freezing for days (possibly over a week!!).


In other news…

I did do okay while my manager was off work for three days. She was still available of course when needed, but, as Iโ€™ve mentioned, I feel like I should just know things already. So Iโ€™m pretty hard on myself.

I led a short department meeting. Minimal, almost pointless updates by me and some small talk. Let me know if you need anything, kind of meeting.

Later, I had Change Champions which included, as usual, a small speaking exercise. It was fun! I actually feel very comfortable in my class and Iโ€™m excited to be able to attend. I get nervous thinking about it maybe the day before for like 5 minutes, but then I remember how I enjoy my team in there and Iโ€™m fine. This week weโ€™ll be reading Who Moved My Cheese. Have you read that before?


To end, Iโ€™ve included a selection of recent memes… this is what 25 years has led up to. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2007 was the year of a huge ice storm in this area ๐Ÿ™ƒ
They ended up winning 5-3!
Half birthdays for the win…
