IN THIS EPISODE:

I got the job! I talk about how the trip out to Boston went, how I rocked my presentation, and how I had an offer letter that next day, which I accepted. Now I just had to figure out how to tell my current boss, which I was dreading. My plan was to hold off after the New Year, and based on year-end meetings and discussions about the uncertainty of the direction of my role and the company, I did feel a lot better about my decision.

I recognize that I got sick because my nutrition and health was so bad, and so I was headed to the grocery store to do some shopping. My plan was to eat Paleo... nothing processed, and start there. That was the way I ate (Paleo-Keto) when I lost weight.

And I had waited until I got back from my trip to send a final text to my former best friend, letting him know I got the job, thanking him for his prayers (knowing he probably didn't even pray for me) and wished him well. I knew he'd understand my subtle/not-so-subtle "my life goes on with good things" implication.

Finally, I talk about my other friend who is trying so hard to get a job, but who is stuck for some reason on having a high level title like director or manager, because it means something to her. But she doesn't have the experience for those kinds of positions and isn't qualified, so she keeps getting rejected.
