So, I got this new job and gasp! I have to dress like a professional. Wait, what? I am already a professional you say? Why yes, yes I am, however, my current job couldn’t give a flying leap what I wear as long as I look decent. So I don’t even have a pair of dress pants (the ones I wore to my interview were about 5 times too big). I wear jeans every day, even going as far as to wear a running jacket and running shoes on Tuesdays. This is one of many things I will miss about my job. When I went to pick up my official offer letter on Friday, my new boss told me that the dress was “business casual” and that what I wore to the interview was just fine. She did not know that what I wore to the interview was a HUGE deal for me, LOL.
So I get to go shopping. Which ordinarily would be terrific, but given that I haven’t lost a pound, it’s going to be quite depressing and really something I’m not looking forward to.
