Never a Chance to Rest

Things haven't really slowed down for me since we got back from our little trip at the end of last month. So, I know I talked about not getting the supervisory position, but what I didn't mention was that I've been job shifted (with choice, I wanted this). I get to learn about Air because […]

Crammed Pack and Busy

The end of May snuck up on me before I realized it. I spent it down in my fiance's neck of the woods, meeting family, friends, and doing all of the sight seeing. So, I got in Thursday evening and then Friday we hit Universal Studios in Orlando. It was amazing. We explored two of […]

A Normal Week's Stress Compressed

Last week... felt like a whole month. Monday, the government shut down for the second half of the day (as compared to my normal work schedule). However, things did not go as expected. We were provided with one set of instructions on Friday. Pretty much, plan to be furloughed. So when everyone came in Monday […]

Future Unknown

The immediate future at least. I've survived a second week of class and I am exhausted. I am trying to debate if I want to stay up to see if my home government can get their crap together. That's why I was referring to a future unknown. If we fail to pass the budget, I […]

Dear Jet Lag

You will not get the best of me. But, man, 3 hours difference from my usual time zone is really throwing me off. I feel for those that came from overseas (Europe in this case) because I would be even worse for wear. I traveled this weekend and am now at a class for the […]

Revamping Begins

I've been super quiet these last few weeks and its not like I haven't been here managing things. I just have been struggling with this spot of mine and where I envision and see it move forward towards. After some thought, I'm going to be working on revamping things and I'm going to try to […]

Trying That Plan Thing

I think one of the things I've been struggling with (especially when it comes to fulfilling my "post twice" a week goal) is a lack of proper planning. Back in the day it was super easy for me to just plan out topics for interest areas and keep going from there. I haven't really made […]

August Goals

I'm going to see if I can actually make this happen this time around. I'm still feeling like I'm in a funk, but I don't feel like grey clouds are hanging over me either, so I'm taking it as a positive sign. So just a few goals: 1. Blog twice a week. 2. Work out […]

Hopes and Dreams

This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I've also taken […]

Ready for a Break

This felt like an extremely long week. I got things accomplished, but I worry about what I didn't get accomplished. I have to remember to step away from the work desk and realize that things will get finished, when they get finished. I've noticed during weeks when we have our programmatic meetings, I'm pretty much […]
