Well people it has been a long time. And I must tell you a lot has happened. Shall we start with the good news or the bad? Okay let’s go with the bad. The most important to this blog is the fact that I am continuing to gain weight. As of this morning I weight 222lbs. But trust me I have great motivation now, but we will get into that later. At the beginning of December I was fired from my job. Never in my life has this happened to me. Every time I go to recount the story it makes my blood boil. I’ll leave it at it’s all about who you know and people who abuse power.
Okay I can’t, this heifer created this story through out my appraisal for the job I worked with her on. The normal process would have been that she and I would discuss it make changes where we don’t agree and then it goes into my file until the year end review, which is in May. No this heifer skips me and the system sends it to HR because she knows that the majority of the crap she put in would have come out if it went through me.
So, the Friday before I get back from vacation I get this email from a partner saying that I should see her at 9am, Monday morning and no matter what I have to do make the arrangements. So I knew something was wrong. Let me take a step back. The reason why I felt something was wrong was because before I had made the mistake of forwarding on an email from the heifer to the associates where she doesn’t use a nice tone of words that she was directing towards me, but it was really to them because I couldn’t force them, so I figured if they heard it from her the would move faster. Big mistake. See by doing this I am tarnishing her reputation of being a nice manager, which she is not. An associate emails me back to say that she’s done and cc’s the manager where she can read all the previous messages including her own. The manager emails me even more furious and I believe thus plots her revenge.
Small, yes, but had major consequences. I can’t think of anything else that I could have done to her to make you be, so vicious. Reputation is big in the company no matter what level, who knew? Also, on the bad side I failed another exam this time by 5 points, these people are killing me and stealing my money…lol.
So, on to the good news, well I did pass one exam and not by the skin of my teeth. Yay! Now three more to go, I will take another in a couple of weeks, and since I have the time I will pass I must. Next, today I will be accepting a position with a fragrance and skincare company. It will be in internal audit, which I didn’t want to do in the beginning, but this one sounded cool. I get to travel all over the world for a couple of weeks at least 4 or 5 times a year. Now for the biggy, drum roll please……
J and I are engaged! It happened last Saturday. We went to see a movie at this old fashioned movie theatre. During the previews the song "So High" by John Legend started playing and then my picture shows up on the screen. He created a slide show of pictures of me and him with sayings in between the pictures. After the last picture the saying said "I want to spend the rest of my life showing you how much I love you" and then there was a video of him asking me to marry him. And then he does the same thing next to me and of course I said yes. The whole thing was so sweet.
I was so surprised and boo hoo crying. I have a video and a video of my reaction. So, when I figure out the best way to share I will. It’s been fast, but it feels so right. Especially being a very careful and untrusting person that I am. I am diving head first and I’m not even afraid. He is the best guy for me he compliments me in every way as well as having things in common. I thank God.
Now you can see my new weight loss motivation.
Happy new year!
