People at the office are finally warming up to me.  I felt like an outsider all of last week.  Crack a few jokes, bust some chops and I’m in.  I guess they just wanted to make sure I wasn’t a robot.  Things are also heating up with siren.  I don’t want to jinx it, but I see us getting together very soon.

It turns out Siren has a friend she’s talking to.  He’s her on-off boyfriend of several years.  This will be a challenge, but I think I can work this.  It’s a gray area because I think they still hook up.  I’ve done worse, so I have no qualms with making a pass here.

The toughest part is figuring out what to do.  Since this is just a hookup, I might be able to get away with dinner and a movie.  I miss those simple dates.  I’m not even sure that I’d call it that.  I think there’s a $10 minimum before hanging out becomes a date.  I’ll make my move tomorrow.  Keep your fingers crossed.  I want to see what she learned at strippercise.

I have a tendency to sabotage myself at work.  I haven’t been putting forth my best effort.  Maybe it’s my cocky ambitious nature.  I really don’t know.  I just didn’t think that I was going to have to try so hard.  Once I decided to give an honest effort, the job became easier.  Lesson learned.  Walk, then strut.

My next challenge is to make office friends.  I’m getting tired of politely saying hi to everyone.  I don’t want to come across as some sort of hermit.  I eat lunch alone every single day.  I hate it.  I’m hoping that this is just because I’m still locked in the training program.  Once I get closer to the other members of my team, things should flow a little easier.  They seem nice enough.
