Good morning, good afternoon, and good night to whoever decides to read my random babblings at twelve in the morning. Not a lot has been going on lately. I am thankful I am still employed. Even though the company I work for just set in motion a massive layoff. Thankfully…. This time I am not affected. I was let go back in February but was able to land a Tech Support Analyst role. I am still getting acclimated to the role. It’s a challenge and a lot of work. I hope to meet with my supervisor next week to go over some things to help further my work. I really want to succeed in my new role and right now I feel like a failure.
The apartment complex sent me an early lease renewal notice. I thought places only sent them out within 60 days. No, not here, they sent one last week and so I now have a place to live thought October of 2024. So, I feel stable there. Having a place to live is always important. I am sure you know what I mean. Look, I had one hell of a time last year getting moved after fourteen years in one place. Granted that last place has its issue. One was the termites. OMG, I hate those little fuckers. In the summer it was always so hot. The AC worked but I also put in window units to make the place cooler. My electric bill is through the roof. Here my highest bill was about $135.00, so that wasn’t bad compared to the $250 to $300 bill I would get.
Sigh. So that brings me to me. I know that I must try and work a full week without using FMLA. If I get stressed, annoyed, or upset then I must use FML to get away from the work. I hate doing it because it’s all UNPAID. This month alone I have used 28 hours of unpaid FML time. So, my check is going to be short. I also have about 64 hours left that I can use. I earn more back as they date from last year’s role off than I get those hours back. I must use FML to keep my sanity. Which most of the time, I have little sanity. I am odd, I admit it.
Now, let’s talk about weight. I am around 178 to 183. I have started to eat badly again, so I need to stop that. I also need to get off my lazy fat ass and lose more weight so I can attract a mate before it is too late for me. Being gay, overweight, and old are all three strikes. Oh well. We’ll see what the future holds. I’m going to try and go for walks again.
Well, that is it for now. I look forward to any comments you might have.
