I have done something truly stupid. Well, not stupid, but slightly ridiculous.
For those of you with any sort of longish work history, you’ll get this. You know those people that you work for that are just so extraordinary that if they ever called you and said they needed you to show up again you wouldn’t have to think twice about saying yes?
Well, that happened.
One minute I’m sitting in a waiting room, minding my own business, and the next minute I get a random text message from said extraordinary person and, um, 9 days later I had accepted a position with zero idea of what my salary would be or basically what my job ACTUALLY was.
And so, because I do ridiculous things sometimes (see: previous paragraph), I’m trying desperately to catch up every minute of the day and shake the cobwebs from my brain that may have accumulated by not being in this industry for a few years.
I’ve set up my home office in a way that doesn’t make me want to run screaming from the room (though I do need a really, really good chair) and I’m thinking of employing the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce strategy of a bar cart with ice bucket at the ready.
Join me in a cocktail, won’t you?
My apologies for the lack of shenanigans around these parts the past couple of weeks. Would you believe me if I said I missed it? Because I totally have. Regular posting will begin again shortly.
Until then, humor me. Have you ever been in over your head on purpose? What did you do to get back to balance?
