I no longer have a job. I am "in between jobs", "unemployed", "considering a career change", "in search of new and different experiences". That last one is the phrase being used at my old company. But, don't believe that entirely.
Right now, I am putting all my faith in the Lord that I will find myself a new job. I know that it is a little scary right now with the job market the way it is. I have a lot of skills and am looking for something that is a little less demanding of my time. I can handle the occasional weekend or late night, but working 6-7 days a week for 10-14 hours each is not my cup of tea anymore. I feel like I have missed out on a lot and have been aging way before my time. It's incredible.
I can tell you though, that the last couple of weeks, I have been less stressed and happier than I have been in the last 2 years I worked for that company. I learned a lot from that job and have valued the education, experience, and the people I met. There are a few people that I will miss tremendously, and others I won't miss at all. I am not saying that to be mean. There were a few people I could never really "click" with.
Also, I plan to ask a former coworker out on a date. It shouldn't be awkward because we will no longer be working together anymore. *fingers crossed*
There will be a day where I will tell you the full and true story, but right now, I am going to start the job hunt.
