Work was fine today. I did gush to my boss a bit, but not nearly as much as I have in the past. I think my very strong feelings of adoration have certainly subsided.
I just feel meh.
My Buddy has certainly picked up her contribution to our team, and I'm not sure why. She is one that certainly keeps me guessing.
But I am slowly trying to break free from that.
I didn't come in today as hot as my thoughts from last night would have me believe. I did casually mention my boss should triage some of those meetings and next thing you know, I was forwarded one and I had to speak.
I don't know. Yesterday was a big vision day. Why does God allow me to have these Big Ideas that don't amount to anything?
One good thing that happened - I spoke to my colleague's financial advisor. And he actually kind of gave me his blessing. Not in that regard, but he offered to answer some questions and I went over my FIRE strategy - maxing out 401k, putting extra money in post tax 401k and converting to Roth and using a target date fund. He said my strategy was sound and was impressed with the in-plan conversion. Yay! It was the first time I'd really said my FIRE goal out loud - the strategy, my number, and how close I thought I was.
Of course I feel jinxed.
I checked A Purple Life's numbers and it looks like her astronomical growth has halted. So that seems like it might be a sign of things to come. Womp, womp.
Anyway...um... oh the wind out of my sails...
Well, remember the Medical Writing job that I did the writing exercise for. Well I followed up with the recruiter and I learned they're vetting out another internal candidate. Grrr. I thought I was the only one. And I have no experience, so I've lost hope in that one. Womp, womp.
It's probably better anyway. I'd already committed to stay in the Call Center Manager role just to make things easier.
