On March 22, 2010 I was birthed into the world of money making and careering.
On March 22, 2011, behold! Career woman!
It was rough going through seven months of job searching and then finally getting hired because I couldn’t believe the search was over. Wild fears of mistaken identity or revoked new-hire budgets plagued me and kept me awake at night in the weeks leading up to my first day.
“Are they sure they’ve hired the right person? Surely after seeing so many people there is bound to a mistaken identity every now and then.”
Even when my manager came upstairs to collect me I still wasn’t 100% convinced that I was truly the one. I hadn’t met him before because he wasn’t in my interviews, so I was like, “For all this guy knows I’m some bum off the street who happened to wander in here in need of a comfy couch.”
When he showed me around and no one seemed to object, I only had to worry about the budget being revoked and being immediately fired. First in, first out. I don’t like that saying. Well, I started liking it a lot more once I was fourth in line from the firing squad. Yeah, now I kind of like it.
Anyway, my blog also turned one! Technically that was at the end of February, but happy birthday, blog!
