A case of foreshadowing

And I didn’t even know it. Back on Feb 3 I wrote about how hard it is for me to communicate. On Feb. 6
JPD and I broke up my brand new relationship ended, largely due to … *drumroll please*… my lack of ability to communicate important information in a timely manner.
That, and my delivery positively sucked. Sweaty monkey-balls. I swear it was the worst delivery ever.
Lesson learned. The hard way. I guess I should have expanded the chit-chat to some of the more serious things I needed to talk about. C’est la vie.
I’m not trying to be flippant. I’ve had two weeks to stew and reflect and play the “what if” game and get analyzed by my friends. And I have accepted the idiocy of what I did and how I handled it. I tried to make amends, and I’m learning, very slowly, that sometimes that’s all I can do. Is try. I can’t make it right if I’m not allowed to. And Lord, how I want to make it right. I’m stubborn. But I’m also a fast-learner. So, I’m letting go.
So, that was sledgehammer #1 and the main reason why I haven’t been my usual self. On top of having to move (#2) and finding out that my contract is not going to be extended(#3) (all happening in the same week or what felt like the same 7-day span). That better be three. I’m counting it as three. If bad things happen in more than three’s, you’ll be the first to know. Because I *will* rant and rave about it right here.
And now, back to your regularly scheduled blog-reading. I will try to post more often. I have enough drafts …
Just came across this Mashable article. How timely.
