Career, car and clothes.

It's all about the C's today. It was career-day at the university, and since I haven't actually bought any clothes for about two years, I needed to start out the day buying something a little more... professional than was in my closet. And considering I'm plus-sized, that's a whole lot harder than I think it ought to be. Apparently plus-sized women don't have jobs where they need to look smart.

Then on to the career-day. Too many people for my tastes, by far. And since my education is both tiny and mostly unknown, nobody are really interested. Plus... I can smalltalk with the best of them, but low self-esteem and anxiety-issues means that making contact with complete strangers is a huge deal for me. Also... I'm very uncomfortable just hanging around, waiting for someone to have time. And given the number of people, that was pretty much all there was to do.

Lastly; car. My car is from '92, and I've had a lot of issues with it. It's cost me more in repairs over the past six years than I bought it for, 6 years ago. And now it's time for the bi-annual checkup, required by the state, and I'm not going to go through with that. What I am going to do... is try to make up my mind to buy my first-ever new car. I'm kind of keen on the new VW up!, but it's a big decision...

LOL - well, there's a difference between two big dogs and one medium-sized cat... ;-)

I need to get my over-eating conquered before I can lose weight again, and that's probably not going to happen while I'm up in the air about so many things. I need a job, a home and a therapist. Once those three things are in place, I think it'll get better. Slowly, but surely. :-)
