New Opportunity

I've been avoiding writing about this until it's a done-deal...I'm moving on to another company, still in NYC, doing mostly the same thing.

It's been a trying time. Work has been insanely busy, and at the same time I was being courted by my new company. It was a difficult decision.

My previous employer decided to let me go earlier than my two-week notice, so I have a whole week to myself. (I start the new job a week from today.) I have plenty to do around the apartment, cleaning closets and catching up on filing, but it's nice to have a relaxed schedule and do whatever I want to. I do think that after a week I'll be ready to get back to work, though. It's really about balance. A little bit of stress (what some experts call eustress, or good stress) can be a good thing, but too much stress (distress) is overwhelming. I've gone from overwhelmed to nothing. So I'll enjoy the break and recuperation period, but I'm still searching for that elusive balance.

Actually, my new office is one subway stop closer on the express train. It's a great office in Union Square.

I don't look for men to date at work. I dated someone I worked with in the past, and it was great while it lasted, but horrible when it ended. I won't put myself in that position again.

Emily, I didn't mean 'at work' oh,that is a no- no- for sure! I'm glad it is a little nearer for you, I used to catch the train every morning to Liverpool to my office where I worked and then when it was home time I wished that I lived nearer as I was so tired..:o( I did like the job though so that more than made up for the travelling. :o) .A.Norma.x
