You Better Work…

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 youbetterwork_bradybunch_rupaulwant 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.
