Life, Work

Wherein I stand up for myself at work

February 20, 2004

All too often, I tend to focus on good situations that end up turning out poorly. But looking back on this week, I realized that the very opposite happened. It started out very stressy. Lots of work. Some conflict. Big deadlines. More than once I had to screw my courage to the sticking place and stand up for what I believed in, and what I wanted. And I did. And I liked how it felt.

Today I felt more positive about myself and my situation than I had in a very long time. I still worked an hour past quitting time, but there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel.

And if it’s an oncoming train…well, I’ll have to get an engineer’s license so I can learn how to drive it.

So it’s another Friday night that would nauseate the Kim of 10 years ago. My Friday night was spent at a Pampered Chef party, where I got away with spending less than $50 and NOT booking a party. (Purchased a pizza stone, stone rack, stone scraper, and a batter bowl)

Now I’m surfing the web in bed. Thor snoozes next to me (a treat I don’t get to indulge in often, thanks to conflicting schedules). Max is curled up into a ball of dog. And my eyes are droopy.

Tomorrow: New glasses@LenCrafters. Some dAOC, then a trip to Philly to watch the Wings game!
