Sugar high

Sometimes there are meetings from which i leave with booty. I hide it all in my desk drawer for rainy days.

Platon, autumn and high heels

It's been three weeks now and i'm doing a lot of work and it doesn't seem like a rocket science or brain surgery. It's just work. But i do tend to stick to the things which i do best and am a bit reluctant towards the unfamiliar numbers and budgeting topics, but getting there, getting there.... What i do best, though, is meeting people, throwing around ideas, finding solutions, organizing stuff and communicating.

Today i went to a business meeting with a guy called Platon (u know, like the famous philosopher). Little did i know before the meeting that mr Platon was something of a 25-26 year-old well-groomed playboy-looking man and I had to be presentable and charming while having the worst stomach ache, ever! It went alright though. The power of concentration!

Things like that happen to me. Like the fact that almost every day i've been wearing skirts and dresses and high heels (because i can, and i love it) and the one day i wasn't, the "big boss" from aboad happened to stop by the office. He happens to appreciate nice clothing, heels and a bit of bling. Argh...however, i think i'm getting a new chance with him. I'm going to charm the hell out of him.

Oh, and since i've been whining about the weather a lot, i'm giving it a lot of credit now. It's been a marvellous beautiful, almost warmish, colourful autumn weather. I wanted it and i got it, and i love it!

2 weeks

I can see i haven't written a word in 2 weeks. Lazy bastard. the new job is taking a lot of my time and energy and since i'm also cramming my personal life somewhere inbetween, no time is left to take care of my baby blog.
Last weekend i went to London and it was 18 degrees warm, while today it was 3 degrees here in Tallinn and it's 16 degrees in my home. Give me warm and sunny autumn with colourful leaves and mushrooms!

The pros and cons of new job

Con: there's so many new things to master that i no longer feel like i know evrything about everything.
Pro: i am learning so much, so many new things every day and hopefully i'll be good at what i do very soon.

Con: the office is no longer situated by the sea and is a bit further away from my place than the old office, but....
Pro: ...hey, they gave me a car to get to it :)

Con: no more beautiful fishtank next to my table and no sofa in the office!!!!! (must work on that).
Pro: The office is situated on 2 floors so i have to move my ass to get a coffee or glass of water from downstairs kitchen. And there are TV's in the office, including the toilets. Lately we've been watching VH1 and it's better than any radio, less repetition.

This is it, then

So, that's it, out with the old and in with the new. Yesterday was the last day at my old job. That period of my life lasted almost 6 years and was a good one. I met some of the best people during that time and i learned a lot. Most of the time it was more a family than a group of colleagues. If you ask me if i was sad to leave...of course i was but when it's time to move, then it's time. And as usually, i let the universe make that decision for me. It came knocking on my door and i answered. Good things come to me, so hopefully it's also the case this time.

Today was my first day at the new job. It was busy and hectic and interesting. But more about it very soon. Now i intend to drink a glass of wine and just relaaaax.
