This week I found out I didn’t get a job after a phone interview and two rounds of promising in-person interviews. I’d been checking my phone obsessively for news for weeks, and while I was incredibly disappointed that day, it was a bit of a relief just to know either way.
The day before I found that out, I had a phone interview and have spent most of this week working on a proposal for another job–one that sounds right up my alley. Please send good thoughts my way!!
(Job searching is stressful. No wonder my stomach’s been bothering me.)
So I escaped to NJ for a little bit of downtime in the midst of all of this stress.
My mom and her friend had come into the city for a doctor’s appointment, so I met them for lunch and then they kidnapped me. We went to Coliseum, because it’s right by the doctor’s office, and I had a turkey burger with avocado and sweet potato fries (apparently it’s an annual check-up because I went with them July 14 last year too, and ate the same thing), and it was delicious. I could live on turkey burgers and sweet potato fries, I think.
For dinner, we went to the golf club. The food isn’t so great, but the ambiance is nice–when we sit outside. (When we sit inside, it feels like a nursing home.)
Not surprisingly, there aren’t many healthy options on the menu. I am more than fine with not eating healthy sometimes–as long as it’s because I want to, not because I don’t have any other choice. I got the chicken thighs with vegetables and (an unidentified) rice and was underwhelmed as usual.
I’m glad to have this proposal done so I can focus on some fun things coming up:
- long run with Heather tomorrow
- biking date on Sunday/friend in town
- Tina visiting Monday night!
- running with friends Tuesday morning
- Chobani event Tuesday
- Emily’s birthday Wednesday
- sprint tri next Saturday!
What fun stuff do you have coming up that you’re looking forward to? Also, what food(s) could you live on forever?
