Celebrate small tonight. Buy a smoothie or something - you just got some great feedback results from your boss. Celebrate for real when you get that first raise in your bank account. Nobody can answer the 2nd question though unless you post your firm. If they have a bowl, I’d post the question there as well.

When that direct deposit hits. Edit: as a people manager, I can tell you there is no real way to gauge timing etc. Depends on the org’s policies, size, priorities and how many people need to approve said promotion.

Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
