Florida, Jobs, and my Food Scale...

Monday, November 12, 2012

It's been awhile...
Too long of a while, and filled with too many excuses. So, here's the closest I can get to an explanation: there was a lot going on, and then I got depressed.

I moved to Florida in mid-September, as I mentioned in a previous post, I'm sure. I was hopeful and excited and just beside myself with joy--my bf and I drove all of our stuff down, moved into our apartment, and I spent a week and a half joyfully unpacking boxes and putting things away and doing laundry and cleaning and...
...and applying for jobs.

Long story short, I got a lot of 'no', and even more 'we've found someone with better qualifications...' Blah blah blah. I took a sales floor position at Target--great company, loads of respect for them, but not a good place for me. I come home every day with my legs in pain, exhausted, and I still only get 20 hours a week. It's just not a good fit for me, physically, and having worked for a bank for so long, I hated going back to a retail position. I thought I was going to come down here and find a new banking job and that everything would be hunky dory. Not so.
The past few weeks, I've been functioning--I love my bf, and it seemed like he was the only thing keeping me positive. He'd get up before me and go to work, and I'd barely manage to drag myself out of bed and to work in time for a shift at 3pm. I knew the signs, and I tried to counteract them, but I was just so down, so disappointed...

Today, I got a call from a bank--I have an interview on Wednesday, and they're hiring at a few branches down here... I tell ya, it was like a jolt of energy. Like a shot of adrenaline. I got up, cleaned the apartment, made a salad, and logged on to SparkPeople.
So, I'm hopeful--that this job opportunity will work out, that I'll have a job that's more my speed, that I'll lose the seven pounds I put on over the past month...

With the help of my food scale, I will do this.
Stay tuned for my next post, on how!! :-)
