Not with my diet. That seems to be going ok so far. This month has been super busy with a lot of stops at fast food places, so I haven't lost any weight. I have maintained my weight loss and I am proud of that. Yea for salads!

Remember that new job I posted about? Well, it's over. I got two paychecks and then decided it wasn't for me.

Long story short, my boss treated her employees like her misbehaving children. Every time she walked by and heard a conversation, she would say, "SHHH! You're not supposed to be talking!" Ugh. Every idea I came up with for increasing productivity was shot down right away. When I mentioned the concept of using macros for some of the data entry, she looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language.

I asked for a meeting with her on Thursday and told her the job wasn't working out for me. I said I needed a job with more variety and challenge. (Honestly, if I would have known there would be this much data entry, I wouldn't have accepted the job.)

She and I went down and talked to the lady in charge of he temp pool. They said once I gave my end date, they could put me back into the temp pool and try for another position. I asked my boss what she thought and then I gave Friday as my end date. The sooner the better!

I have applied for a few jobs. I am registered with 6 local temp agencies. I signed up with a new one on my day off last week. They seem to think they can give me a temp-to-hire position. Time will tell.

Right now, I am happy to be back on SP logging food and posting on my blog again. Hopefully I can keep a positive attitude and be productive with my time rather than sit around feeling sorry for myself.

    Good luck with the job hunt. I finally found something I enjoy which is really what matters the most. I hope that you also find something that has you waking up excited to get to work.

    I know I will get a job soon. It has to be better than the one I just left. It gave me satisfaction to end the job myself instead of waiting around to be fired.
