Well, I’m sitting in the office on my lunch hour today, twiddling my thumbs. Once again, the whole office went out to lunch together and did not bother to invite me. Guess they’re trying to send a message. I could go somewhere and eat on my own, but I don’t really have an appetite anymore.

I wish I fit in a little better around here. This new job feels so lonely. I know I’m learning my duties at an OK pace and they don’t have any criticisms there or anything; it’s just that the clique around here is kind of tight and they do things together every day — during lunch, after work, etc. — and it’s just hard to be the one person that is never, ever included or invited. Especially because I had so many friends at my last job — this is a big adjustment, and not really a lifestyle I’m looking forward to being “adjusted to.”
