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.
I 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!
