Today? Today is my birthday! 32 years old! Anyway, let’s move on.
I’ve been at my new job for 3 days now (had to work today). Let’s discuss the job as vaguely as I can, I’m working in a similar job that I previously had. The hours are longer (10 hours a day, 5 days a week) but the money is better. The people are incredibly nice and welcoming, random people come up and ask how I’m finding it or just general chit chatting.
But, it’s hard not to compare it to my old job. And unfortunately, they aren’t the same. I miss the people I spent 10+ years together with. I miss the sense of closeness to bosses, how many bosses shake their employee’s hands every morning and evening when you leave? I get it, I’m just whining about a time in my life I won’t get back. And yes I know that things like that will occur at a new place, everything takes time blah blah.
There’s also the time I’m missing with my family now, I’m no longer able to take my daughter to school because of the early start time. It’s so early that I can’t even wake her up to get ready like I used to. I miss spending that time with her, I loved walking her to school and running around after her. Now? I get about an hour and a half with her when I get home, then its off to bed for her.
I’m hoping things improve or…? Another job? Getting used to it all? I guess I’ll just see what happens.
