Being anal is good

Today I found out a couple of interesting and important facts. For one, sometimes it’s good to be anal. Like, for example, when you’re an editor.

Yup! Today I had my first day at my first editing job. I’m psyched because I’ve been wanting to try this out for a while and now I’m being given the opportunity. And, I’m proud to report that it seems I did great for my first day. And yes, you guessed. That is because I’m anal.

Well, it’s not actually decided yet if I’m anal or not but I do have strong attention to detail when it comes to the written word (and how your hair and nail polish looks – KIDDING!) so hopefully this position will work out well for me.

One of the other things I learned today is that being mean isn’t necessarily illegal. There are things one can do to another that are just really mean and inconsiderate and, quite frankly, screw over the other person in a most royal way, and yet, it is not illegal at all.

I do prefer not to write here exactly what I’m refering to. Some of you who know me might know. But suffice it to say that it’s best to just deal with good people to begin with because the law does not protect you from many mean possibilities people have in how they might treat you.

I know that last comment is very naive. You often do not know if you’re dealing with someone nice or not until something comes up (or not).

On a different note, a blog note, to be specific, I have been wondering why it’s been difficult for me to write here lately and I think I know why. I have so much going on in my head – as always – but most of it is too personal to write about here. But that’s what’s on my mind! So it’s hard to write about something else instead.

I must get back into it, though, because I do love writing here and seeing all you guys visiting and writing your comments!

  1. I was thinking about what you wrote, and I just can’t see how relationships between people can be so black-and-white, but that’s just my opinion.

    1. Nice to hear from you here. I’m very curious exactly what you mean though I’m guessing it has something to do with the mean/nice part of my post. Yes, things are complex when it comes to human beings. I may have made it sound simplified in this post! I’d love to understand more what you mean exactly.
