Achievement Unlocked: New Career

Heads up, the details are going to be a bit vague. This is to stay on the safe side, sorry in advance if this annoys you.

I have three more shifts with my current job before I jump ship to my new job and the start of a new career! I have already received training such as health and safety, floorwalking and how to be a fire marshal.

To be honest, I have mixed feelings about it.


I’m nervous about starting fresh in a new environment with new co-workers. I am sure that once I settle in I will start to build a friendly rapport with them. However, I am a bit of a pessimist so I fear that I am going to mess up big time in the first couple of shifts and get off on the wrong foot.

Frankly, part of me is still in shock that I got the job in the first place. As if I am going to get a phone call any minute informing me that it was all a big misunderstanding. Despite the training and getting all the paperwork sorted. It’s like my mind can’t accept anything good happening to me, that I don’t deserve it.

I didn’t think I would feel like this, but I’m a bit sad to leave. I am good pals with two of the supervisors in my current job and I am going to miss them and our jokes so much. On my last closing shift a few days ago one of them gave me a Star Trek bookmark as a leaving present. I was so touched. Those lads made that job a blast, I knew I was going to have a good shift if I was on the same one as them.

Most importantly, I am excited to get started.

tenorI get to work with something I am passionate about. Better yet, I get to be a part of something bigger. Plus there are multiple ways for me to climb the ladder. I know that I’m finally heading in the right direction in life.

It will not always be easy, I know that, but I’m sure it will be worth it. Change isn’t an easy thing for me, being Autistic and a creature of habit. I need to move on, that means pushing myself. I plan on working hard from day one, not accepting anything but my best.

Wish me luck!

  2. I just quit my job… with no back up! I love and embrace change. I am looking for a career switch, but need some time to think about what I am switching to. I learned what I don’t like and that’s totally okay. So remember that with this new job, you will learn so much about yourself and will grow from it. Mistakes are bound to happen because it’s new to you! It would actually be very weird for a human to be perfect at something new, especially a whole new career. You will be fine šŸ™‚
