and it's almost Friday

Dear Red Team, 

I do apologies I am going to be a huge disappointment this week for weigh in as well...

I guess I'm just not mentally ready to drop these dreadful last 18 pounds, or else I would have by now! I'm not really sure what to do to motivate myself. 

The interview went well, it wasn't even an interview. I went in filled out the paper work and answered the questions, there was a part on the "test" where I had to write a report which was totally lame and I barely even worked at it. I wrote some stupid stuff, didn't even finish the report like I would really on a job so I laughed at myself and figured they wouldn't have hired me after that. (but it went on...)

I then met the guy who I was suppose to meet, we discuss what I had been doing and my experience. After 5 minutes he said he wanted me in for a second interview with the big guy who say's Yes or No to hiring. Within two minute another guy came down (I just want to say, holy hell I've never walked into a security company that was surrounded by all good looking people. Even Guards and people coming in for meetings were good looking! haha).

The guy asked me if I worked for G4 before because well, my boss who worked there before praised me and how good I was so this guy who used to work for G4 as well (in the office part) knew who I was he just didn't have a face to match the name until that moment. (I also think that when I lived in Ontario the Vice President of the company was the one who called my Boss, and told him I was coming out to Alberta to work and that they should take me on and find a placement for me. I'm pretty sure that's why I get a really high appreciating when it comes from his mouth.) This is why and I realize now, you never burn your bridges and in the end GOOD things DO happen to go people. I have to do a course for a week which they pay you to go to as long as you pass it. Funny thing is people are asking me "well what happens if you give your two weeks and fail?" Well if I fail that'll be my own stupidity as well then I guess I'd be screwed but I'm really not worried. 

The recruiter because he knows my Boss now, and of course with someone with my experience they want me on he's willing to work around my schedule. I told  him I wanted to give my company two weeks proper notice. So next week he's going to email me with other training dates which then I'll be able to choose from. I haven't hidden the fact that I've looked and I'm not one of those people who's going to fear saying I'm looking. It truly shouldn't be a shocker given the fact I've stressed how miserable I am about the change they made WITHOUT the explanation. (when that's all they needed to give me and the other girl and I'm sure we would have then been fine about the switch.) I'm also sure my boss will find out because well The guy who interviewed me knows him from working and contracting out the other security company.

So that's my story good things do happen to good people...eventually :)


  1. Wow... That's pretty awesome, Barbi! Maybe that's why you're having trouble focusing on the 'numbers'. You're just too focused on other things right now! Usually, I know people will say that they can do it all at once, but sometimes it feels too overwhelming when big changes are coming on. You may not have a big loss just due to stress, but I think in the end you will be fine. I just hope you get this job and can leave the unhappy place you are right now! I understand how that feels... my hubby is pretty miserable at times where he is and is trying to figure out the best way to deal or get away from it. :/

  2. Thanks Jewlz I'm really hoping too that I can leave there soon!
