Whether it’s RuPaul calling us all to arms with “Supermodel (You Better Work)” or Britney telling us that if we want the lux life, “(You Better) Work Bitch” – I know that I’ve got to work for the life that I want for me and Larry. Work hard. And I’m fully and completely ready to do so – but I’m so damn anxious and scared about the near future and it’s unknown status as to what life will be like at PwC. And of course, this isn’t exactly a new thing in human nature. Everyone gets nervous about a new workplace, and I’m not special. But dammit, this feels huge. HAHAHAHAHA, so to speak.
I guess it feels “bigger” to me as I know that PwC has a huge and impressive reputation. I don’t want to disappoint either the company or myself. So I’m stressing about things I can’t do anything about as I don’t even know what there is to stress out about! Man, I need to chill. Larry pointed out that I had this same kind of stress when I joined NBC, and it’s TRUE. That was another huge change and one of those transitions where I was going to a huge corporation and a well-known one and I was moving away to a brand new city (New York City!) where I knew absolutely no one. So yeah, I guess I’ve been here before. And in today’s situation, I’ve at least got the fact I’m not moving ….er, well, at least not to a new city without knowing a soul, and I’ve got Larry, and my friends, family, etc. So it’s actually not too terrible – but the “fog of war” is big right now and I’m anxious. I wouldn’t call it “scared” though, just anxious.
Once my orientation in Atlanta begins on Monday, I’m sure I’ll get into the zone. I always do. And I am ready to be uber-charming and super-Hobie as I think that is what is expected and I am ready to deliver. It’s all so exciting, scary, and new. I love it and I dread it. 🙂 You know what though, this is awesome stuff all around. And then we’re moving to a really sweet complex next month and man, I can not wait for that.
IT’S ALL HAPPENING!!!
