Reeling With The Feeling

I’ve been pretty boring lately, don’t I know it.
Self-absorbtion is pretty boring to everyone but those who are self-absorbed. I’ve been busy in my own little world, with little time and energy to think about anything but. It’s only been a week at the fabulous new job, but already I run the risk of losing myself in work…and I do mean that in the best possible way. They’ve got me up to my ears in photography jobs and in the last four days I’ve had seven photoshoots. It’s been wonderful and terrifying at the same time. Wonderful because, dude! I’m getting paid good money to do exactly what I want to do. Terrifying because the photos I’m taking will be used in a major upcoming ad launch that I can’t yet talk about in detail only that the photos are meant to speak for themselves in the ads. If that wasn’t enough pressure to prove myself and my ability to The Big Agency, the other day I was handed a video camera, given basic instructions on how to operate it, and then given the assignment to film. Since I started the new job my head has been in a perpetual state of spinning.
I hope for your sake the novelty will wane to the point of me being able to talk about something, anything, other than work. Until then, please bear with us.
I say ‘us’ because The Husband also has exciting career news. Yesterday was his first day as a lifeguard for the Navy. “How was your day, dear?” I asked when he got home at the end of the day. “I can’t believe I’m getting paid to do that,” came his reply. By ‘that’ he means sitting in a chair and hanging out by the beach or pool, and going for an occasional swim. Addi was made for this job. He didn’t save any lives on his first day (nor did he lose any!), but he did apply a band-aid to a little girl’s foot. I couldn’t be happier for him.

    as a dad to two little girls (well, one once was…), those bandaids are pretty important, and appreciated. job well done.
    you haven’t bored us here. and what you are going through is normal for a new job that pushes your abilities and talents. that is a GOOD thing. so enjoy it, relish in diving in with both feet. and don’t worry, you’ve got your own personal lifeguard. 🙂

    Congrats to you both! Sounds great. Here’s what I tell myself when I feel occasionally overwhelmed with anything:
    “To whom much is given, much is required.” 🙂
    It’s comforting in a pragmatic sort of way.
