If you don’t follow me on Twitter, then you probably aren’t aware of my news. Well, here you go – today was the last Monday I will work at my current job.
That’s right, kids, I GOT A NEW JOB!
/smattering of applause
If you know me outside this blog at all, you know this is really huge! And also very awesome! And I’m super excited! I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.
That’s all I’m going to tell you. Because that’s all you need to know. But just know I’m really excited about the opportunity and I’m happy to be working downtown again and to be able to take public transportation to work!
In preparation of my new gig, I have already purchased a new lunch tote. I also bought a new purse. And I have wrapped up a lot of my projects at work. And now I’m a little bored, but know this is temporary.
This is only the second time in my life that I have quit a job. Seeing as this will be my sixth job since college (and fifth since starting this blog), that goes to show I get laid off quite frequently (three times!). And while I don’t prefer being laid off, I have to say, it is much easier on the nerves and stomach. Because giving notice is not fun. Even if you know you’re making the right move, or you hate your job/boss/co-workers, it isn’t fun to drop that bomb on anyone.
Add to that the fact that I am the world’s biggest people pleaser, and you can see why my stomach was in knots about just the THOUGHT of doing this. Once I had to actually do it, I almost vomited all over myself and my keyboard.
But I put on my Big Girl Panties and got it over with. And it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be (it never is). So now I just have to finish out this week and I will be on to bigger and better things.
