*blows dust off blog*
Its been a while since I updated, and a lot has happened since.
- I was burning out at work and was tail-spinning... Towards the end I was regularly having nightmares and would randomly start crying at odd times. I worried all the time about work.
- I had to do something so I talked to my bosses to see what could be done
- They agreed that things were bad for me but told me to "hang in there for one more year" and we'll hire someone to help you
- The next day, I quit my job. The one months notice I served felt sooo looong! I was actually hoping they'd tell me to clear my desk in 24 hours because I really just wanted to leave it all behind that day.
So that's basically the condensed version.
Between then and now I've been taking it easy at home and regaining my former self.
Its been really great and I feel very happy these last two months. I'm relaxed and a huge burden feels like its been lifted from my shoulders.
Since I've been on a break I've been doing all sorts of things I used to love but never did anymore. Like going to the library more often, reading, and dancing. I even did some work around the house and some arts and crafts. Oh and I also started to learn how to drive (believe or not I don't have a license)!
At the same time I've also been slowly looking for another job.
It took me a long time just to figure out what sort of job I want to do next.
At first, I was mindlessly looking out for vacancies that were similar to my last job. I applied and even got a few callbacks. But I felt really awful because I keep thinking abt how horrible it was for me before, and why would I want to do it all over again???
So recently I've been looking at other career options - jobs that might pay me less money, but also come with less stress and more happiness.
I just want to be happy and working.
Wish me luck!
So I quit my job 2 months ago
