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.



The Next Chapter is Starting

No sooner did I finish writing up my previous post today about Big Bear did I get some fantastic news!   After about 2 months of interviews and stressful waiting, I finally got the word from PwC (Price Waterhouse Cooper) that I got the job!!!!  I am so thankful and relieved and excited and psyched!

This first morning of (f)unemployment was a bit nuts for me as I realized that I still didn’t have a clear idea of what I was going to do now even if my $$ situation wasn’t dire.  I had resolved to get into a rhythm of doing online learning and making sure I was being productive, only allowing myself to game or such as a reward later in the day.  I’d done some work on Udemy and then did the pictures post as my reward when I saw on the side of my site that my Missy Elliott/Under Construction post was in my ‘popular posts’ section.  I clicked through and immediately knew I wanted to watch the linked “Gossip Folks” video.  It was about halfway through the video and right when Ludacris begins his rap when my phone rang….and the rest is history.  It’s such a fucking relief…..and here’s to 2015 continuing in this vein.  “Gossip Folks” definitely went from a favorite song to a “lucky” song!
