I have spent the last two and a half months at home, at the dog park (oh my lordy the dog park), the grocery store and hanging with my parents. I have also spent that time sending out email after email after email searching for a job. Please tell me if anyone else just bloody hates that ALL applications are now online?
Anyway, luckily two weeks ago I received word that my search was over! Not only was it over, but it was at the company I have heard AMAZING things about so I’m really looking forward to meeting and working with everyone there. The kicker is, the excitement has built up and built up until today.
Today the nerves hit. I’m still excited but now I’m nervous as all get out as well. I got two welcome emails which have made me eager to start and yet nervous as well. I’m not just changing jobs this time, I’m completely changing careers. So the idea of walking in and having meetings immediately is both exhilarating (jumping right in) and terrifying (OMG I haven’t done this in six years!!!)
So right now I’m doing laundry, gathering all the papers I will need for tomorrow and basically getting myself set up for the next several days. And working. What a time this will be.
