I penciled in a schedule last night. Today, I'm starting to put down what I do and how much time I'm actually spending on doing it. I plan on taking a good look at it and the end of the week. I can then tweek it a little, keep track again next week, and again take a look at it. I figure two weeks will give me a pretty good idea of what I'm doing, how I'm doing, and if I'm wasting time on anything. My intentions are not to micro-manage things. My intentions are to fit in more of what I need and want to do. I'm looking forward to having somewhat of a report at the end of each week. I know things will come up that will have me rearranging things, but that is to be expected. I still want to make sure I get in some time for things that really matter to me right now.

I realized this morning that I get to re-think and re-do my schedule AGAIN. Today is the perfect day to do it. I am going to take into consideration the stuff I feel I need to do every day, such as job search, skill practice, and spend time on Avon along with my everyday household chores. There are things I want to do that I really want to schedule in: read more, visit with friends, spend time doing stuff just for me. It may take me a couple hours to get a flexible schedule set, but it's time to do it. I cam across a SP quote that seems quite fitting in remembering while doing this scheduling. "Never hide behind busy work. It takes just as much time to fail as it does to succeed." ~ Og Mandino. I want to succeed this time.

I've been in a funk ever since Thursday when I got the call saying that the job wasn't working out and to not go in. I've been trying to stay busy, I've been applying to jobs, spending time running errands, doing things for myself like getting my hair cut - anything to try to keep my mind off the fact that they didn't think I could keep up with the fast pace. It's only worked a little. I imagine my mood will improve a little each day, but I'm not sure how to get my confidence back up. I went into the job with the attitude that I was going to give it my all and make it work. I also knew that it was a lot of work with odd hours and little pay ~ this doesn't make it any easier. I'll keep trying. Something eventually will have to work.

I know that I felt that I still had a lot to learn on the job that I just started last week. I know that it is a fast paced, high stress office with weird hours and little pay. I just didn't expect the phone call that I just got from the employment agency. I was told that my assignment has ended. The company told them that they didn't feel that I would be able to keep up with the fast pace. How could they tell when I only worked 7 days?
So, now I'm back to looking for work. Not a good time to be doing this, as my car is still in need of $600 worth of repairs. Needless to say, although I suspected the job wasn't right for me, I'm still bumming. All they talked about last week was giving me a chance to learn everything. I definitely have a complex now.
