Day 344: New Tires and Fake Optimism

I wanted to get into work a little early – which would have been pretty tough without a car. Thank goodness I have the best fiancé in the world who let me borrow his car and drop him off super early at work. He even picked up my car on his way home! Anyways, today we had an all-hands team meeting to review the new structure. Overall, the day was long and frustrating. Any change and uncertainty can be uncomfortable, but I’m still extremely concerned about the personalities. We’ll just have to see how this goes.

I once read an article (that I can no longer find) that the concept of “peacocking” is a real thing. Wearing distinguishable accessories or bright or bold colors can help people notice and remember you. Today I was very worried my voice would get lost in the shuffle, so I wore my brightest dress! Not sure if it actually worked, but at least I felt good!

Day 343: Carpool Life

Here’s to #carpool life. Thank goodness I have a co-worker who lives not too far away who is willing to let me crash her morning commute. Unfortunately for me, she needed to work late today, so I’m stuck hanging out at the office working on a few random things. At least I have the best fiancé in the world who not only helped coordinate getting my car towed but also went to the tire dealership to pick out tires for me. He totally has a lobster roll in his future! 

 Today I actually left home a little later than usual, so I had a little more time to try with my outfit. I love this color blue – it’s the brightest neutral I own!

Sound off: who in your life are you grateful for today?
