Second Orientation at Pitt

Today was my second Orientation at Pitt. I have already been through the Orientation once before, when I was a temp last summer, but since some things have changed I have to go again. I was not looking forward to seeing the one woman that I had a run in with back in November, but it was inevitable, and I planned to be nothing but kind to her.
When she opened the door to take me back to the conference room, I made sure I said, hi to her, so I said, “Hi Kristen.” She smiled and said, “Hi.” I took a seat where there was a folder, and waited for Orientation to start. I wondered who would be conducting it. Would it be the same women as last year? Or someone different?

When Christine walked in, I was happy it was her. She was my favorite person on the all temps staff, but I wondered why I haven’t really heard from her regarding any new open assignments. I had an idea why I haven’t heard, but I think I missed out on some opportunities, because of certain people. I guess I only have myself to blame for that.  The thing Pat told me, was really bugging me.  I wanted to know what I could do about it, and how I should go about dealing with this. I thought about asking her for advice, but Drew and I were texting and he said, “I would let it go babe.” I think I have said enough. He is right. After orientation was over, I went to catch the bus. I called Wendy and told her it went well. She was glad, and said she will see me on Wednesday.

When I got home, I decided not to go to the gym. I was feeling like I as getting a little sick. I thought maybe perhaps I was coming down with a cold. I just did some laundry and some cleaning. I was feeling really warm and out of it. I think it is probably just stress. I took a little nap, then went to the store. I drove to the chiropractor. He was able to squeeze me in for a 3pm appointment.

When I got to the chiropractor, I could tell Dr. Bailey was on one of his power trips, and on his soapbox with his instructions. I have lost some weight, since I started going to him, and I am going to the gym more, but my new work schedule, does have me on my feet, but I am not able to go to the gym as much as I used to be able to, anymore, but I still go. He is always telling me to stretch and it goes in one and out the other. I just want to be adjusted, so I can go home. He said my neck was out. I knew that already.
When Drew came home, he was kind of feeling the same way and headed to the gym to sit in the sauna for a while. I just wanted to stay home and watch Nashville, so that is exactly what I did.
