Hello Fellow Bloggers!
As you may have noticed, I have not been as active as I normally am these last couple of weeks (posting every four days instead of every-other-day). Now that it has been announced to my team, I can finally fill you in. When I was hired into my full-time position, it was always the plan that I would be hired on temporarily, then transferred to one of our other locations. What started as a six-month position, slowly turned into a year.
Eventually, I received my own program to work on, and a promotion, and thought maybe this job would become more permanent. I began looking for my own place to live in the area. Since I didn’t know when I was going to have to move, I had been living out of suitcase between my parent’s house and my partner G’s house. This took a major toll on me mentally, since instead of feeling at “home” I felt as if I was trapped in a never-ending stay at the hotel. However, when I informed my major that I was looking for a place to call my own, her response was that it seemed like I was going to be transferred before April – it was late October when this exchange occurred.
Finally, the last week of January, I got the okay to begin to apply to other locations. The beginning of February began an onslaught of job interviews. On the 16th of February, I had finally received a new job offer, at a location I was excited to move too. Since then, I began apartment hunting, furniture shopping, trying to find time to get my runs in; and, to top it all off, my current program is about to hit a major milestone on Monday. I have been insanely busy and, unfortunately, my blog was the area that suffered.
I wanted to let you all know what is going on because the rest of March may be the same way. I am moving into my new apartment this weekend. The weekend after is my 24th Birthday on the 9th and then my last half marathon of the Winter Warrior series on the 11th. I will start my new full-time position on the 19th, however, I will be driving the hour and a half between my current office and the new location for training over the next two weeks. I ask for y’all’s forgiveness of my absence as I begin transitioning into this new and exciting period of my life. Come April, I should be back and stronger than ever.
Thank y’all and have a rockin’ weekend!
