We are doing a workshop tomorrow, and I am leading a section. I have done similar things, but it feels much bigger and more formal. I know I've got this, but I'm nervous!

I work alone in my department. The manager has me helping one of her new hires in a different department (Supposed to be for computer issues). I can't believe the stupid shit this lady calls me over for. She told me my customers can wait. No they come first. Her problem she couldn't get the tv on (She didn't tell me what the problem was until I got there). Power button pushed and problem solved. She claimed she tried that (she didn't) She ask me pricing on her products her scanner can tell her that, they are tagged! Instead of looking for things she walks over to have me find them. (Right where she left it) She gives me a throbbing headache. I know she's playing dumb to get out of doing her actual job. My job looks easier. I deal with a lot of money so only those with no backround can work in my department. I think she thinks I'm not doing anything so bug me all day. I hate going to work when she's there. I don't mind helping if it's a real problem. I normally like my job.

Didn't sleep at all last night so I called in sick for work. I don't feel the least bit guilty about it. If they were short staffed, too bad. Everyone else calls in with her medical issues all the time.

Fuck. I got a conditional job offer pending a background check (police communication). I answered honestly (light marijuana use- literally a handful of times in the last 10 years) and submitted it. Got the mail today and find out I failed and am no longer eligible for hire. Fuck. I was counting on that because my life is in shambles. I am so fucking depressed now. I've been a ball of stress for weeks now and it just turned into absolute despair. I am stuck. My current job does not pay a livable wage and this one is the first one I even got an in person interview for. I'm going to call to see if I'll be eligible in the future next week but fuck. I feel so hopeless now. Oh and today is the anniversary of my grandmother's death. And I have no beer or ice cream. FUCK.

In response to a confession. I'm going to talk to her. I have to. She has a lot of the paperwork I need for the project and I'll just ask her why she never followed up with these people. I am sure she'll say she was just busy, but I guess in my mind, that's not a valid excuse--if you're busy, at least communicate that to the client so they know why you're going to be slower at getting things to them.

I am so pissed at this lady I work with. I just got handed a pile of her projects. One of them was with a big client, so I emailed them to let them know I would be taking it over. They sent me all the emails they'd sent the lady who was working on them--she basically ignored all their requests and they were PISSED. So now I get to play SuperHero and save the project and make them not hate our company forever. I don't know whether or not to say anything to the coworker who was working on it though. I feel like she'd just be pissed off at me.

I think the boss I have now is essentially the same boss I had before, just at an earlier point in his career. My last boss used to literally force us to sit and listen about his fancy vacations, and the car he bought his kid, and all sorts of stuff like that. The sitting and listening about vacations, smiling and nodding, that was the worst. I will never make enough money -in my life- to take fancy vacations like that. Now, years later, I'm making THIS guy rich enough to start taking vacations to places like Cancun. I just hope when he gets back I'm not forced to sit and listen all about it. My vacation? Driving 3600 miles to visit my in-laws. Sleeping along the way in the car because motels are expensive. And being made to feel guilty for taking the time off. Whatever at least I have a nice job, right?

I start an Administrative Assistant position on July 30th. I haven't worked since March of 2017. It seems like a good company. I'll also be giving urine tests which is like doing medical work. I'm excited and scared to death!

I got the job! I'm so excited! It's only $15.00 an hour, but they offer benefits, 401k, and profit sharing. My life has begun! I can finally move forward with my divorce. Thank you all for your prayers & hugs!
