This has nothing to do with water sports, sorry, I even thought about finding a graphic for that apology, but I'm at Starbucks and I think they frown on that type of graphic being sent over their particular network.
No, this post is about the fact that I've been on the road since 8:30 this morning and have not made time for a bathroom break. That tells me a couple of things (1) I need to plan better (2) I've been on the road too much (3) I need to drink more water (4) there is a good chance that most of the weight I lose is all water weight, and, after buying new skinny pants I will drink down 3-4 gallons of water and get right back to where I started....
Today was all about the job hunt. Met with a recruiter (#4 or #5) who was almost young enough to date my daughter who's not old enough to date anyone. He was nice and polished and super excited to see me and grateful that I made the drive all the way down. He was also very excited that I found metered parking on the street because parking can be really hard here, you know, it's just so expensive and then we run out of places in the garage and you can go over the street and find it cheaper but they have trouble with their gates and it's a little smelly in there and, anyway, you found a meter so it's all good. Big Breath.
He liked my resume, thought they could come up with something good for me, and asked me to get on their web page, give him some ideas, and call him back on Monday. Will do. I also stepped in to the office for University of Phoenix. My friend used to teach there and loved it, so he's been bugging me to go talk to them. Do I really want to be an evening professor for people who think that the key to happiness is a bachelor's degree from a night school that would hire people like me? Could be fun, could be awful.
I got a bit of a reality check yesterday when my insurance was declined at my dentist. WTF??? Luckily is was just a book keeping error, but it does put a bit of focus on the job hunt. Mentally I've got all the time in the world, but "all the time in the world" is almost 1/2 over. Maybe the Mayans were right. It's not the end of the world this year, just the end of mine.
Bad corporate Math moment... My gym wants all instructors to teach 2 classes per week to stay on payroll. Most of us only teach one. They are not doubling the number of classes nor are they firing 1/2 the teachers. I don't think they've done the math. Why should they, all they know is sweat. They've proving that again and again.
I'm trying to eat healthier, but the chocolate drizzled coffee cake is calling my name from the counter. I'm going to resist so I can have my salad at home, but I'm not going to be happy about it.
I could have had it but I was weak after my interview and got a snack as I left the building. In retrospect I should have waited for the chocolate drizzled coffee cake, it looks much better than a flaccid energy drink and yogurt covered pretzels.
OK, now I really have to pee.
