Quick Life Updates

I’ve just joined Bloglovin – feel free to follow along!

Although I don’t have many life updates, the one I have now is a pretty significant one. I submitted my two weeks notice at my previous job (my last day was on Friday) and I’ll be starting a new one in a couple weeks. I’m both nervous and excited for the change.

The job I just left wasn’t my first job out of college – the first one was not really a career path for me (I would’ve had to get a Ph.D. in Economics or Statistics or similar, and that was not in the cards) so I transitioned out of it. While I did like the one I just left, I think it was just time for a change.

Even though I pushed myself into it, changes are always kind of difficult for me. I’m pretty good at adapting once the New Thing has started, but everything leading up to that is stressful. A ridiculous but true example – I would get anxious about moving from one apartment to the other. Not just the moving part (packing is probably my least favorite thing ever, because it’s basically cleaning on steroids and I hate cleaning to begin with), but my brain always processes it as a phase in my life that I am leaving forever. Very dramatic and very sentimental, that’s me. The part leading up to to transition is the worst part, but once I move into the next phase I’m off and running again.

Random list of some things I’d like to do in the two weeks between jobs:

  • Visit my friend Dylan downtown
  • Read 5 new books
  • Take the pups to the dog park
  • Horseback riding lessons
  • Decorate for fall – do people still say basic? Because I definitely am
  • Relax!!
