New Job!!!

That’s right! I have a new job and I cannot wait to start. I’m nervous and excited and a whole bunch of other emotions that I can’t seem to grasp at the moment. I am so unbelievably happy and I wouldn’t trade this feeling for anything….well, the feeling of being a new aunt is better, but this is on a different scale.

It’s just, this year started out pretty gloomy for me, what with my 2 1/2 year relationship ending. But then it looked brighter after I graduated from college and then the birth of my adorable niece was exactly what I needed. That, and reading books again. And now thatΒ  I’m a part of Booktube, I’m just really happy.

I made myself a goal after I graduated. I said, you have until July to find a full-time job WITH benefits. A career! Time to get serious!!! And after applying to tons of jobs and having those pyramid schemes rear their ugly, stupid faces everywhere I looked; I was starting to get very worried. Then by some miracle two potential positions made themselves known. I applied to both, wanting one more than the other. But the planets aligned and I managed to get an interview for that one.Β  A job where I can use both my major and minor!!! And I landed it!

This is going to be such a weird thing for me to get used to. I’ve never had a full-time job before, only three part-time jobs and classes with time for naps in between. I know I’m going to be exhausted while I grow accustomed to waking up early and getting off at 5. Crazy. But I’m ready for this next phase of my life. Evolving into a grown up!! Well, I’m heading in that direction and I’m ready to take whatever comes my way. Both the easy and the complicated.

Here’s to evolving! I’ll fill you in more about the actual job next time.
For now, just know that I am happy.

Β Thanks for reading

    I too, need to realize that it won’t always be doom and gloom forever. I’m glad that even though your relationship ended, that, you found yourself in creative outlets, and are doing better <3 Congrats on your new job!

    Congratulations on the new job! I remember when I first started working full time, it was daunting to say the least but the benefits far outweighed the cons and once you get used to your hours it will all just feel like normal! You’ll find yourself still getting up early even on your days off when you don’t have to!

    @Sarah, It is daunting. Part of me wants to fast forward to the part where I already have things down. But then I don’t want to miss out on anything. This is the next part of my life, and I should enjoy it.

    Thanks so much for reading! πŸ˜€

    Yes! Congrats on taking that first adult step! I think it’s awesome to set goals for yourself.

    Congrats on getting a full time job!

    @Rezina,
    Thanks so much!

    Making goals has always been something I’ve done, but not always something that needed to be completed in a timely manner. I’ve been pretty lenient on not obtaining certain goals. I didn’t want to let things slide when it came to job hunting. I hope this attitude stays even after I start working. XD

    @Veronica,
    Thank you, thank you. :3

    I’m ready to tackle things head on and do my best. πŸ™‚ Plus, I’ll need to pay back my school loans soon and I want to get a head start. Having this full-time job will help a lot with that. XD

    Thanks for reading!

    I’m incredibly happy for you! I know how hard it is to go through rejections and failures after trying and trying and how anxiety and worry can overcome you after not hearing from anything. I’ve had that for a while now but thankfully I recently got myself a placement so I know the feelings you feel right now πŸ˜€

    I hope you enjoy it, keep us updated! I’d love to hear more. πŸ˜€

    @Pauline, Thanks so much!!! I’m excited for you! Congrats again on the award and placement!!!

    I know anxiety will always be there, I just want to do my best at keeping it under control and not letting it affect me.

    Thanks for commenting and reading!

    Going through a breakup can be tough but now you have time to focus on you, and you are going to kick ass at your new job! Congratulations. πŸ™‚ I remember going into my first full-time job as well, it was a big step but it was definitely better than juggling studying and working three part-time jobs. Even though I felt like a huge part of all those companies I think that dedicating my time to just one was a good experience too.

    @Georgie,

    Yes, it was harder than I thought it would be, getting over it. But it was nice learning who I was again.
    I hope I can kick ass, I want to prove myself and show them that it was a mistake hiring me. And yes, I just want one job so I can focus on it and do great things.

    Thank you for reading.
