I mentioned in a previous post that a friend gave me some cash as a bridal party gift to spend on an Erin Condren planner and accessories. I’ve been using it about two months now, and I cannot say how much more organized I am. I had thought that between the calendar app on my phone and the Notes app, I was organized. Holy crap, Batman. I find myself with more and more free time each week, everything gets done, and I’m not super stressed. I’ve always been a list maker and planner, but I also tend to procrastinate and end up having to do a whole lot on one day. But with this I can sit down and plan out what needs to be done each day based on my work schedule. It’s amazing.
Anyway, this post is not about planners as I’m not getting paid to talk about them. If I ever were, I would. But today is not that day.
I found an interesting pin on Pinterest; it’s called Deep Questions To Ask. I think it’s more of things to ask if you were on a date and really wanted to get to know someone, but there were a couple I really found interesting and had to really think about my answers.
Do you live to work or work to live?
Bold question. Currently I’m working to live. There have been points where I’ve lived to work, but right now I’m working to live. I get very little enjoyment out of what I’m doing. I’m constantly annoyed because I’m so underemployed and it’s hard to do this job when you have an MBA and not think, “wow, I’m so much better than this.” That sounds egotistical as all hell, but when you’re working an entry level retail job when you have this kind of education it’s hard not to have that thought. Sometimes I feel like I should at least be grateful that I have a job, but goddamn it I’m so over this BS. I spent a good chunk of today applying for jobs. I’m hoping the interview I had last week where he said he’d put me through to the next round pans out, or something pans out soon. I’m so sick and bloody tired of the job search. I just want six months where I don’t have to or want to look for a new job. I’d prefer longer, but I’m not going to get greedy.
Do you consider yourself to be an introvert or an extrovert?
I am 100% an introverted extrovert. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but in situations where it is warranted, I am an extrovert. People that know me only at work would swear that I’m a total extrovert, but in reality I would much prefer to be at home, alone (or with Mike), reading a book, crocheting, etc. We have friends (mainly some of Mike’s, but a few of mine qualify too), that spending any amount of time with them greater than ten minutes totally drains my batteries and I’m almost useless for the next 2 days. My social banks are not filled up by being around people. They’re filled up by being by myself or with a select few of my friends that either charge me up or are totally neutral in that they don’t drain or charge. I so prefer to be left alone. Working with the public there’s a lot of days that I just can’t do it if we have plans to go out. I need to be at home with my cats. At the end of the day, I really just want to be left alone most of the time. Texts are fine. Please don’t call me. And definitely don’t show up with no warning.
And lastly, What do you want your final words to be?
So long and thanks for all of the fish.
