Looks like I’ve been headhunted.

I swear, sometimes the world works in mysterious ways.

The last year or so, my dedication and energy at the job has slowly gone downhill. I’ve been here 6,5 years, learned everything I know about this industry. I was a very young, doeeyed girl, when I started here.

Last week, I was reading darlingdoll82.wordpress.com, how she was offered another job, got a raise and better terms, not imagining it’d happen to me days after. And just last week, I was annoyed with some work here, and I thought ‘God, can’t I just get out of these kinds of tasks, and just do the part I rock at?’

Tuesday I got a call. Wednesday I had an interview. And wednesday they asked me to join them – and I said yes.

I’m baffled and counting my lucky stars that I landed a new job where I can do what I do best and negotiated a 24,5% raise and a much better bonus. Excited and proud. And even though I wont become a millionaire, it’ll be a big difference for a one-income household.

I’m also scared to death. Taking the leap is nervewrecking, especially when there’s no other income at home if the unthinkable happens, and it doesnt work out. Oh, and I’m kinda afraid I wont live up to their expectations…

The whole decision and the fact that I did it, keeps emerging in my thoughts every 3 minutes, and I think to myself ‘Oh my God, what have I done?!’

But at the end of the day… I didnt get to where I am today without taking chances. Remembering to sometimes move out of the comfort zone and -always- being true to myself has always been important to me. But boy… It’s big. And exciting. And big! And I’m feeling confident, but also kinda small.

Wish me luck, guys? *in need of a smiley doing a shy smile*

The fact, that you guys out there…

… Comes here to read the ramblings I put up every now and then honestly humbles me. But some of you also make me laugh, smile or raise an eyebrow, when seeing -how- you found my little spot, here on the web. So when DarlingDoll over on http://darlingdoll82.wordpress.com/2013/05/01/weirdos-the-lot-of-ya/ posted some of her more unusual search terms hits and asked me to post mine … I thought I’d share the (almost) unedited list. Enjoy!

Sure. A man would so read that. Right after he painted his nails…

Commercial for a telephone company. Was only watching with half an eye, but basically it showed a couple sitting in a sofa, him reading, didn’t see what she was doing other than sitting in the other end of the couch.

What was he reading, you say? ‘Bake with quinoa’.

‘Bake with quinoa’!

Seriously, is this what they think will arise a desire to buy? Excuse me a second while I laugh. No man, not even in feministic society like Scandinavia, will want to identify with a man reading ‘Bake with quinoa’.

My God, I hate metrosexualism and what feminism has become.

The look in an Alpha’s eyes.

Romantic

My first encounter with an Alpha since I got divorced, happened about six months back. A friend and I were at our favourite nice bar/live music kinda place, and on my way out, an old school mate suddenly got in front of me, physically blocking my way.

Never fawn over a woman + a million other little thoughts…

Today I read Dannyfrom504’s blog entry http://dannyfrom504.wordpress.com/2013/04/04/why-you-should-avoid-9-10s/, where he comments on how it’s never a good strategy to be the schmuck who fawns over a woman. I so endlessly agree.

My laugh of the day

First day back after the holiday. My God, I’m loving this mug of coffee here in my hand.

Again, I experienced something this morning, that made me smile. It’s happened quite a lot of times actually and thought I’d share it here.

The price of having children with a beta.

I’m not here much recently. As I’ve written in the comment section somewhere, I briefly thought about shutting down the site, because I just don’t have the time or the material to write daily or close to it, but I’d rather leave it here, and come back when I have the energy again and something on my heart.

Anyway…
