It's been an interesting week. I quit my job yesterday after realizing that there was no possibility of my being happy in the position. This decision came after a difficult meeting with a manager and co-worker. The job was full of negativity and disillusionment on the part of many of the people there. I've seen worse in the workplace and I've seen better. A dear friend of mine who has been in the working world for many years says there are no good workplaces; all employers are jerks. I'm sure there are some exceptions to that, but I am starting to put some stock into the theory. In any case, I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to move forward. I have some VERY good leads on jobs that I am excited about.
This was truly a great day. I slept in, met a friend for lunch, got my hair cut, and got in a great workout at the gym. It's great to feel so refreshed and excited about the future and all that is coming up. The other day, I ordered the books for my Master's program and I can't wait until they get here so I can start reading them. I know, that sounds strange, but I am so ready to dive in.
In other wonderful news, my best friend got a job!! She's been looking hard and all her effort has come to fruition in the form of teaching 6th grade. I am SO, SO excited for her and VERY, VERY proud of her. She is awesome. I talked to her last night about my job stuff, her job stuff, and general stuff. It was a good conversation with laughter and fun. Thank God for friends.
Tomorrow, I have lunch plans and I will be getting a facial. I have a lot of errands to run as well. I look forward to checking things off my list. I feel SO great right now. There's nothing like knowing I'm moving in the right direction. It's like being underwater and finally getting to come up for air. I've broken the surface!
