Other Life Tidbits:
  • I am terrible at thinking on my feet when I'm asked unexpected questions. I tend to default to honesty (usually a good thing), but in some cases, it results in hurt feelings. Yesterday, I ate lunch with a few co-workers that I have worked with since the beginning. Since I am leaving next week, they invited me to lunch and we had a great time catching up and just reminiscing....I'll miss them a lot. But when I got back, another co-worker who I am not so close asked me "where everyone went for lunch" and stupid me could not think of a good answer, so I blurted out "we went out to eat." I feel bad that her feelings were hurt, but I'm also annoyed because it's not anybody's business who I eat lunch with, especially since this is my last week at the office and I was invited to lunch, I didn't organize it. *sigh* I suppose I should have invited her myself, but I confess I just wanted to hang out with the people I felt comfortable with. It's situations like this I see how socially awkward and selfish I am. *sigh* Gah, some things never change!
  • I can't believe that in a few weeks that I'll be in a different place doing something different, living a different life. Honestly, I just want to go now and feel like I am waiting impatiently for my life to just begin. It makes me happy and sad at the same time to feel this way. I'm so excited to be embarking on a new adventure, but I am saddened by how many years it took me to summon up the courage to do so. I wonder about the kind of person I'd be today if I'd been more courageous earlier.


  1. I wouldn't let it bother you that she is a bit upset. She'll get over it. We can't include everyone in everything.

    Yay for new adventures! I can't wait to hear about them.

    I feel like I'm waiting for my life to start as well.

  2. Even if you feel like you waited too long to take a chance and begin a new adventure, it's great that you are starting it now! I hope you love it!

    Last day/week of work lunches can be awkward. Sometimes you just don't want the whole office to show up. I'm sure you did the best you could.

  3. You are going to do great! Change is what keeps us thinking on our toes and all need practice time to time

  4. OOoo are you on your new adventure now? Fill us in! And the key is that you actually made the leap and now you're moving forward

  5. i definitely know what you mean about how being honest can sometimes hurt other people. but honestly, you don't have an obligation to invite anyone you do not feel comfortable inviting. and i am in a similar position as you, i am excited for my life to really begin. i wish you good luck! :D
