Ah life: promotion... weigh in with the doctor... chinese?

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Well as I live and breathe my boss handed me an expected promotion with unexpected twists today. I am really apprehensive about taking over the good once my friend moves on to a better opportunity but at least my financial woes will settle down. He's giving me a sizable raise which I sorely need to make other opportunities open up in my life. I just wonder if this is the right step towards medical school. I just wonder if this is the right step for me all the way around. It's obvious my current position would turn into a mundane boring job once the dust settled and any gains made would fizzle out. So moving on to a new mobile manager role ought to, at the very least, give me hope of something better. I am praying that's the case anyways.

I am due to see my doctor next Friday for my monthly weigh in. I am little nervous to go since I gained weight this month from stress and frankly poor stress management. I am trying to get back on track, which is going better, but I am really concerned about showing up as a dud come the 7th.

Dear Lord I need discipline. I really need to get back into the swing of my Mandarin lessons. I really want to be fluent in both Mandarin and Spanish before I apply to medical school. That will take a fair bit of studying on my part somewhere in between work and taking care of my mother. I am really not sure where to fit it in but that's probably because I am lazy. Truly lazy. If only there were a few more hours in the day or I didn't need to sleep. . .

    Hi there, don't become defeated by setbacks. We all go through challenges and I feel like with a little jumpstart by even seeing your doctor to face the dreaded possibility of disappointment maybe you will get back on the right track. I am so excited to see you participating in the holly jolly 8 week challenge. As a teammate and also overweight, I definitely have my challenges. I look forward to seeing you reach your goals!!!

  Piffle - we are all lazy to some degree. Who would not like to sit on a beach sipping mai tais rather than attend work meetings. The fact that you have such high aspirations for yourself and many projects in play shows you are not very lazy. Stress mgt is difficult, but you at least recognize it and can do something about it. Good luck on your projects and finding your path.
