mama got a brand new bag!

okay not really. but mama did get a brand new job!!!!!

i barely ever blog about work, but something as big as this deserves a post dammit! i have a new position within my company. i still get to work super closely with my boss (which is a plus in my book), but i also have tons of new responsibilities and all sorts of new challenges. i can't even put into words what the past 5 weeks of my life have been like. i was juggling numerous tasks and my mind was completely consumed with all things work. it literally took over every waking moment of brain space i had. i was exhausted. beat down. emotionally and mentally drained.

but then i got to focus on this new position, and this new position alone. i heard angels sing. no really, they broke out into song. and while some weight was lifted, there wasn't full relief. there still isn't. and i think it's because i'm trying to wrap my head around everything that this new position entails.

don't get me wrong, i am SO UNBELIEVABLY excited about this opportunity. it's just that i'm nervous and scared too.... because well.. i could completely fail and fuck it all up. i won't. but i could. and i think that everyone feels that to some extent when they're starting a completely new job that they have never handled before. it's challenging and at times, completely overwhelming. but it is awesome. i know that i'll feel good about it once i truly feel like i have it all down. you know, when the tasks become second nature. i am looking forward to when it feels like that.

the best part about this job. the very bestest estest estest part about it? I GET TO FLY TO LA! even though i won't get to play most of the time, i don't care! i get to visit. breath the brown air. soak in the heat. just be there. and that is like the biggest plus ever in the whole world to this new position. first flight? this friday. can't wait! wish me luck!

Good for you. Best of luck!

Don't put too much pressure on yourself. It will take a little while to get up to speed and I'm sure they know that.

Haha. Congratulations! Although as somebody who spent the last 27 of my 28 years in So Cal (and the last 9 of 10 in LA) I don't quite share your sense of nostalgia for the LA smog, heat, traffic, and general attitude.

Jenn, congratulations! That is awesome! Sounds like you got quite the promotion, too. Does this mean you have to stay even later for the Friday George meeting? ;)

Wait a minute.

Does this new job, and the accompanying new responsibilities, mean no more photo sessions outside acting crazy with your co-workers?
