So...what would you do? The DNR supervisor who interviewed me for the position I wanted told me there would be another position opening for a limits calculator. She strongly encouraged me to apply saying I would be highly suited for the job. I applied on the state website. The website said I "didn't meet minimum qualifications" because my engineering degree isn't from an ABET-accredited school. Should I email the supervisor and let her know? She told me that they were going to be updating the website to include 4 year engineering degrees from non-ABET accredited schools. I feel like if she personally recommended me for the job, she feels like I'd be more than capable of it even though my degree doesn't match up.

My dispatch interview is today! I bought a new suit and redid my resume. I'm so nervous. 90% nervous about the interview, and 10% nervous because I'll be going directly to work from it... And my current job has a very laid back dress code so people are going to be up in my business about why I'm dressed up. My only hope is that I get time to change. I have not told my boss I'm interviewing or looking for a new job.

I'm feeling all of a sudden overwhelmed with my new job. For almost two weeks, they basically had me doing nothing and now they just threw a whole list of stuff at me and they're like "here, do it" and I really don't know where to start. I had to start contacting people and so far, I've gotten a few undeliverable requests and some replies that are totally in French. I hope I get settled into it soon. However, since I do work for one of the biggest personal hygiene product manufacturers in the world, we get SUPER nice TP in the bathrooms, free tampons/pads, and all the Kleenex we want. That's probably the best perk I've ever had at any job.

Coming back from a work event, before I exited his car after a deep conversation, and in a moment of gratitude I suddenly asked if I could give a hug. He agreed. Arms wrapped and our cheeks accidentally touched. I left light-headed. Later I apologized for crossing boundaries since all other hugs have felt platonic. He didn’t mind it and said it was genuine, natural moment that we both responded to. We met up for lunch on our break today. We both expressed a mutual connection and possibility of exploration. He says we’re doing a dance. His gaze looks and feels different now. Like it reaches deep into my soul just like our connection. Yep, he’s still moving in 3 weeks and I’m still in a LTR. Timing effin blows.

During a game of horse, I found out he played basketball all throughout HS. We both beat each other, but man I’m impressed and happen to be a bball fan.

I ran into an old CW from my old, menial job where I was stuck making not much money. She told me things were still the same they always were there--thank goodness I'm out of that place!

I work my butt off. I'm always ahead of the game. Boss lady made a mess of my work, and I still got it done ahead of time even though I had to clean up after her. Later she comes in telling me to work harder and faster. I told her to shut up. Then she gave me a bonus. Makes no sense.

Accidentally spilled water on my work laptop. I got it brand new when I started 7 months ago and now its going to cost $750 for a new rebuild due to damage on major parts. :( Can't wait to tell boss this, though I know she'll be understanding...I feel like CRAP.

I started my new job this week. No one has spent more than about an hour a day with me for training, so I've been basically being paid to drink coffee and sit there for this whole week. I was allowed to leave early today because no one was there and I had no work to do yet. I've never had a job where I get paid to basically do nothing before.
