Short and Sweet…okay somewhat sweet

I’m still here people….

I began my new job on Monday of last week, it was to say a very rocky first two days.  This is because here in my new position I need to be independent and a “self-starter” something I couldn’t be in my previous department.  As you all know I was micromanaged to death which included the request to re-write my letter of resignation.  Yes, that’s right I was asked to edit/re-write my resignation letter.  Okay I’m getting off track here.  Anyway, I had really had it with my supervisor, although a very nice lady, after she got preggers, the micromanagement began.  My new boss, is telling me to be myself and take control of my position, and that I don’t have to run everything by her.  She’s a goddamned Vice President, and she’s telling me I DON’T have to run everything by her?!?!?!

By the way, let me just add that she is the most kick ass older white lady I have ever met.  She’s cutthroat and she does not bullshit around.  She holds her own in a room full of male VP’s and demands that she be respected because she’s earned it.  She has a lot of experience and she’s telling me that she hired me because I came across as confident and astute when she interviewed me.  Something I was not during my time with my old job, and something I struggled with the first two days on the job last week.

New Coworker meme

Everyone here is so nice and laid back it’s scary to think about.  One thing that does perteb me is this, this is THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT, and all the other executives dress like they’re going to work-out or shopping for groceries.  I’ve been told by several VP’s and my boss that I dress the part for my job, in which my boss decided to let the man himself (President) that everyone should dress professionally.  Granted most of the staff and student’s aren’t on campus because of the COVID thing, but they are slowly being phased back in.  And now, the other “Huntress” (there are two of us with the same name but technically there is only one Huntress, y’all know that) told me that her boss, another VP mentioned that she needs to dress more business casual.  So, in short, I have already (maybe) alienated some of my new co-workers.  But then again, they work in the most important office on campus, they need to reflect it, no?

Wonder Woman meme

I’ve been busy non-stop since I began last week, I have not posted anything in almost over two weeks, because I now work 8-5 (which I hate, but what can I say?) and when I get home the first thing I do is run.  Then after I make my lunch, put a couple of loads of laundry in and do what I need to for the next day.  I haven’t even had a chance to catch up on the blogs that I follow (apologies to all my fellow bloggers) and I think I need to come up with a rhythm in order to make sense of all the chaos in my life since I began my new job.

And it has been chaotic, meeting after meeting, report reviews, fiscal budgeting, fires, hires…..oh that’s because my boss is “the” boss for all the clinics so every hire and fire goes through her.  Policy reviews, emails, scheduling, phone calls and such that when I leave my office I’m mentally spent, and running helps me forget the business day.   Oh did I forget to mention that my previous department emailed me last week over a small calculator I forgot to turn in? No? Well they did, I got an email from my former supervisor about a fucking $6 dollar calculator! I didn’t respond to her I just took the fucking thing to my old office and left it with the girl at the front desk and asked her if she could email my former boss to let her know that I had dropped off the damned thing.

Done with Shit gif

I’m so done with that place, lucky for me I don’t really have to deal with them in a professional capacity.  I’m more on the fiscal side of things now, instead of the proposal/funding, dealing with idiot faculty members and such.  I’ve already come up with pet names for some of my new coworkers, but that’s a new post entirely.  For now, this is The Huntress, over and out.

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. I’m sure it will take you a little time to settle in and find your way. But hey, having a kick ass woman boss should be a good fit for your kick ass style. And I doubt you’ve alienated anyone with the dress code thing. Just go with the flow…. and keep us posted with the pet names!

  2. YES! Bring on the nicknames! When I was in the Navy I transferred off a ship to shore duty. Life at sea was very busy and hectic. Not so much on shore duty. The first couple of weeks I was bouncing off the walls and constantly asking people should I be doing something else right after I finished a task. My supervisor finally pulled me aside and told me to bring in breakfast and a newspaper in the morning and read it cover to cover before I asked what was on the agenda for the day. It took me a bit but I finally found the middle ground between getting the job done and enjoying the work.

  3. I was so hoping for nicknames already but I guess we’ll just have to wait. Lol. I know someone is going to rub you wrong and get a hilarious nickname eventually! I’m glad you have an outlet that helps you unwind from the job every day. I wish I cold run…walking would be nice as well. :/ Anyway, I’m glad your new job is working out!! ❤

    1. Me too my friend. I think I found a sound rhythm this week. I got some snarky asshole email me back with attitude. Once he found out who my boss was he was all like “Oh Ms. Huntress let me send you what you need”, blah, blah, blah. It’s nice to work with someone who has POWER! lmao
      I won’t let it go to my head of course, because you know I’m down to earth and shit. Haha!

  4. Love it, Huntress! Any new position requires a few days or weeks to get into the swing of things. I’m so glad you’re in a much better position now. Can’t wait to hear the new pet names you’ve come up with. Asshole bitches and their stupid cheap calculator. So glad you don’t have to be subjected to them on a daily basis anymore. Mona

  5. Oh wow I hadn’t realised you changed jobs, good luck and it sounds like you’ve found a huntress in crime but seriously – to re-write a letter of resignation and return a calculator? What did you change from “I quit” to “I fucking quit! lol.

    Shove the calculator where the sun doesn’t shine 😀

  6. Fantastic–it sounds like everything is going really well for you. Having worked under supervisors who were total micromanagers (one was a micromanager because she literally didn’t have anything else to do) I know how great the feeling of sweet release can be.
    It still sounds like you’re running all day, though, so I can imagine how good that real daily run must feel.

  7. So happy things are better than the other place! Don’t worry about us–we’ll still be here when you finally get into a new routine. In the meantime, I can’t wait to hear those new nicknames!

  8. I’m so excited for you!! It sounds like it’s going exactly how other new jobs go—chaotic and mentally taxing. It will calm and you will naturally find your rhythm. Just keep getting through each day and soon enough you’ll realize you finally have it all under control.
