I figured I'd write a little bit about my new job. Firstly, I love it! I love where I work and the people I work with. I've always loved working in smaller offices because I've found people's personalities to be so much better (and maybe it is due to less stress, pressure, drama and gossip that bigger offices have) I just feel so right there, like I'm meant to be there (and I know after how I got the job that I am really am) I'm learning so many things and I must say, I am proud of myself because my brain is not fried like I thought it would be. I still can learn at a quick pace and teach myself how to use all the new programs and do all the new work I have. I still enjoy teaching myself things too. I do some admin stuff but I also do a lot more (and will be doing a lot more) of the insolvency side of things and again, I love it. I love having that variety and learning new things. The more I can learn now the better it will be when I go back to school to get my counseling license. It is a very small company (only 4 of us plus a guy who rents out a room for his accounting business) but there is still a lot of room for me to grow and learn all about insolvency.
It may not have been what I had in mind when I was looking for a job, but now that I am there I do not intend on leaving (if ever) well, okay, let's be real. In 4 1/2 months I will be temporarily leaving and don't even get me started with the guilt on that one....I'm making sure to take good notes and write everything up so whoever takes my place temporarily will have notes and I can do a good job at training them so I won't feel as bad (I'm sure I still will thought) I was hoping to not announce this pregnancy until after my 3 month probation but the fact of the matter is, if I waited 3 months from when I began I'd be 6 months and I'm already showing at 13 weeks...there's no hiding this baby for much longer. I still want time to prove myself though. I still need that time to show them they made the right decision and that I made the right decision. I just really like it there. It's very laid back and no one gets stressed, my office has a ton of big windows so I get to look outside (which I love!!!) I'm really enjoying my first week there, though my body is finding it tres exhausting but I suspect that will change over time.
I don't know if I mentioned it before but I accepted the job before I knew what I was even going to be compensated with. Turns out, it is more then I was making before, the benefits are better and I don't pay for parking. Plus there are some other great perks that I look forward too. I know I took a risk accepting it and having to announce my pregnancy before my 3 months is up and having to tell them about the boys will be hard too but I just could not let such a good opportunity pass me by and I hope they feel the same way because I really do love it there. I say that now and maybe in a few months I won't but I really don't think that will be the case. Plus, I get to learn how to manage my money well to avoid getting into debt. I think we are pretty good at that given everything we have been through and we have come out not owning a bunch of people a lot of money. We are at the bottom but now that we are getting back on our feet and we both have good jobs it will start to turn around, it has to. I think the next few years will hold some great accomplishments for Stephen and I and I can't wait to share them all! #1......bringing home a living, breathing, healthy child. Here's to hoping that can happen soon!
