Pretty good. I passed my licensure exam on the first try and I’m the only person I know who did that AND took the test that others avoid. I honestly just wanted my life back whether I passed or not. I studied (or thought about studying) basically every damn day for the past month or so. FREEDOM!!!

Congratulations on passing your exam first try!

Out of interest, what license was it?

Got a job offer for basically my same job +25% pay. Hoping my current place is willing to negotiate a match though because going to a bigger company would also give me less freedom to work on what I want.

Waiting to call my boss this afternoon.

It’s stressful, to say the least.

That’s actually better than most weeks prior.

I gave my boots to the local cobbler (one of two in a 30 km radius) because the sole is coming off and getting hole-y. This guy, whom I assumed would have maybe a couple repair jobs every few months, is completely overbooked and thus I’ll see my boots in maybe five weeks or so again. But, honestly, I’m glad for him that his little shop is booming (relatively speaking)

A lot of the older style trades are making a big comeback, so this isn’t that surprising. Hopefully, others will see how booked up they are and open more in the area for you

It’s going okay so far, but my area is forecast to have highs in the 100s later this week and I’m not sure how that’s gonna affect me, since I only really know how to dress in layers for work (I’m a trans woman working an office IT job where I do occasionally step outside or carry computers from one bldg to another)

Like, I’m gonna be wearing a thin cardigan over a tank top and I know I’m gonna sweat. Oh, and my hair instantly goes frizzy when I sweat. I’m dreading it.

Take a nap!

My sleeping schedule is bananas. I decided to just give up, and I’ve been slowly going to sleep at later and later times. Currently my bed time is ~5pm. A month ago it was ~4am. :s

I started therapy recently and after my session yesterday I felt really similar to how I’ve felt in the past after unloading a lot of my emotions in a giant cry session. I think that means I’ve unbottled those emotions in a healthier way this time, which is exciting!

Work is still stressful though, but I’ll keep getting by.

Turns out I might have either lupus (“it’s never lupus”, until it is) and/or Sjögren’s syndrome. Got a bunch of incredibly expensive blood tests done today (yay universal healthcare. Oh wait the conservatives effectively destroyed it so I have to use private healthcare and I’m uninsurable due to pre-existing conditions) and now I’m just waiting and experiencing nontrivial amounts of dread. Life was already barely worth living what with my existing health issues that already include autoimmune conditions, so this is just icing on the cake

Wow that sounds like a lot. I really hate the idea of privatized healthcare and I hope we do away with it eventually. I’m sending some good vibes your way, I hope your week turns around for you. ❤ We care about you

This week is okay because I took next week off…

I can’t keep doing this 8-5 y’all.

Pretty great actually! I just signed the offer letter for a new job and will turn in my notice at my current job later today. I’ve also been reconnecting with some old friends and was able connect some of them back with each other too. I stayed up a little late playing some games with them last night. It was great hearing everyone goofing around together again, it almost felt llike no time had passed at all

I took next week off from work just because I can and I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’d like to make the most of it but I can’t decide between doing something really cool and doing nothing at all; both are tempting!

Otherwise, things are going pretty great. I might be able to go full remote at work (which would mean I don’t need to quit anymore), and I’ve prepared a wonderful peach, feta & cucumber salad for lunch.

I am supremely jealous of your ability to take time and have no idea what to do. I have a 7 month old kiddo and a partner who plans our calendar months in advance. I dont think I’ll ever have a weeklong stretch of unspoked for time ever again in my whole life.

I am incredibly lucky to live in a country that strongly protects workers, to have no children and to be able to afford an apartment 10mins away from my partner’s place rather than living together and depending on each other’s calendar. I remember how lucky I am every day. I really hope the baby is doing well and that things will settle down in a year or two - obviously it’s still not going to be “unspoken for time”, but hopefully things will settle down a bit at least!
