One, I’m back! Or trying to get back into some kind of blogging routine – starting with today’s post!
Two, I did it – I moved! I have been living in beautiful Colorado for a little over a week now. I’ve already experienced rain, thunderstorms, light spring snow, and a lot of sunshine.
Okay, so now with those quick updates done, now to the part where my stress level, nervousness, and uncertainty take over. I officially had my bittersweet last day at my last job about two and half weeks ago. I say bittersweet, because I did love it there – the people especially, but I just couldn’t see myself being really happy settling down there. Also, all of my coworkers were really excited for me to take this huge leap of faith while still sad to see me go.
And here I am, having been here for just over a week now. And unemployed for almost three weeks. However, I do start a contract job this Friday which they see as lasting for a few weeks, so at least I will get some kind of paycheck even though it won’t turn into a permanent job unless I decide to ‘apply’ for it. Which I don’t know that I’m going to want to do that.
Which is definitely a scary thought, but I also don’t want to settle especially considering that the job is right in the heart of downtown Denver. Which I’m not sure is the location for me considering that eventually I will need to think about where I want to live (or try to live).
I know that there are a lot of things going through my head right now that I don’t necessarily need to stress over just yet since I haven’t even started the contract job. But a part of me just can’t help it sometimes.
And this is me not even thinking about the fact that I don’t have any friends yet. But luckily I know that I won’t want to focus on that until I have the routine of a job down [and a job ;) ].
This last week and half has felt like months and it makes me nervous and scared to think about not having a job as well as getting closer to the summer months when I’m told that jobs get scarce. Eek.
All I can hope for is that I will really grow from this experience.
I know that this has been a theme in some of my posts in the last several weeks and I hope to get back to writing book related posts soon as well.
But, if you’ve been in this kind of situation or have any tips for starting a new job or doing temp jobs, I would love to hear your thoughts!
