My thoughts are heavy today. I didn’t get the technical coordinator position at my full-time job, which I figured. I like the one who got it and she knows her stuff. My manager recommended trying for analyst again. I told her, “I’m an English major, not a financial analyst and I would suck at that job.” Her response, “but you like Excel and Office.” So? English majors aren’t financial analysts, they are word and report analysts. I’m not a good fit for that… I would have been a better technical coordinator.
What I did was probably insubordination, I’m throwing away my high paying potential, but I believe that what I truly want to do, while it might not make a millionaire, I can make decent money. Money isn’t the only thing that matters; while I know all careers aren’t rainbows and unicorns, I want more better days than bad days. I want to feel a belonging and I want to feel a match, I also want to grow with someone that aligns with me. Milennial thinking? Mayhaps. However, friends have said just like my parents and Nan used to say, I can be anything I want to be. My life, my terms. I’m grateful for friends today.
I’m thankful that my post about Birds of Prey made it into @MovieReviewsByUs’s blog. I loved the movie and at a later date I might make a more in depth entry and I do want to see it a few more times, I’m grateful that I was recognized.
Anna’s in town this weekend for a Horror Sideshow Art Show at Merchant Square in Allentown, PA. I saw her last summer for the first time in ten years and I don’t want to wait another ten years, so I ordered my Greyhound ticket and I’m going to visit her stand this weekend. I can’t wait to see her, show support, and also explore Allentown for a bit. I’m thankful for her friendship and it’s the least I can do.
What are you thankful for?
