Hey Dudes and Dolls,
I hope all is well. My apologizes yet again for my intermittent posting. Packing, moving, and preparation has gotten the best of me. I am scheduled to leave Atlanta this Saturday. I will have a one week's stay in DC, then I'm leaving in August.
Many ask, "Are you excited?". My response, "Not really." Perhaps anxiety about moving has smothered the feelings of excitement. Secondly, I'm coming to terms with the notion that I will be "The New Guy" again. I loathe the familiarity process and getting to know new work people, or them getting to know me. Idle chit chat and "helpful hints" drive me absolutely insane. Repetition and the toddler treatment get a thumbs down as well.
For those who have met me have kinda figured out that I'm a reserved extrovert. I love going to events, celebrations, parties, and galas, but I typically don't do a lot of small talk. I enjoy absorbing the energy and chatting with a select few.
So again, I'm faced with one of my personal challenges, "The familiarity period". I sort of hate it really. Can it be October already. Bleh.
Perhaps I'll feel better once the moving truck is here, gone, and I'm on that 17+ hour flight.
