I despise my own hypersensitiveness, which requires so much reassurance. It is certainly abnormal to crave so much to be loved and understood.
Tuesday interview… Two in one day. Wednesday reviews of references, talks to HR. HR issues… Job description and pay different than originally thought… Thursday calls with supervisors and HR… HR called again and offer made. Still confused… Friday come into office to talk to supervisor, without person who is leaving present… Feeling a lot better about job and the responsibilities…. Accepted offer… Monday will go in for all physical etc and all that fun new work thing.. Then Tuesday I officially start my new chapter of my new career.
Wow…. Did not think in 8 months when I started this I would be running 4 5k’s, have a life changing epiphany of what I wanted to do career wise… And before the year even ends, I already have a job in that field.
Mysterious ways…. Mysterious ways…
(Disclaimer: This post might seemed disjointed and short and not very involved in its description but this week has been crazy and I just wanted to document how fast and strange it’s been before I forget. )
I should be documenting like this so I don’t forget what’s been happening.
Well with all the lay offs and people leaving, there are two positions that have opened up. At first they were going to be two coordinator jobs which would entail more responsibility and I don’t feel confident in my experience enough yet to feel that I could do it to the best of my ability. But that all changed. My supervisor made mention to me again about a position and if I was sure that I wasn’t interested. During this whole time I had been reconsidering and thought well if she brought it up again, I would talk with her about it all.
Originally I just wanted a part time job so I could go back to school and still volunteer. But opportunity knocks in interesting ways. So here I am a week later officially applying for a job. It’s been an interesting turn of events. I had met someone who works in HR who had been helping me update my resume during all this time. The timing was perfect. So over the holiday, where I should have just been relaxing, I had this weighing on me.
I will write more later because now I need to go and get tested and fingerprinted so that I can see patients…. which freaks me out because of how emotionally invested I get and all that has happened in the past. But life is a challenge that I’ve got to accept and with each new one I’m trying to open up my heart and mind and just welcome them. I can learn and grow and maybe just maybe find in myself something I didn’t realize I had.
