Do you ever feel that you're pulling a Buffy? Because for the last few months of my life. I was totally feelin' it.
No I'm not talking about Amazing-Quip Buffy.
No, I'm not talking about Making-the-Worst-(or best)-Mistake-of-Her-Life Buffy.
I'm not even talking about Questionable-Fashion-Choice Buffy.
I'm talking Season 6, Episdoe 7 Buffy. Where she's just going through the motions.
For the past few months I have been feeling this way. I have a good and steady job. I get some weekends off. My blog has been growing.
But there was something off. I was feeling bored. I was feeling that my personal growth had stunted. I felt like I was just going through the motions. Wake up, Netflix, work, sleep, wake up, repeat.
So I decided to look for another job.
In a completely different field.
So I updated my resume to include my various work experience and started applying to jobs that were more media related or administrative related. I wasn't even sure what I wanted to do completely. I just knew that I wanted to start looking into some other options.
It was scary at first. My TV job is full time with paid vacation and health insurance. Any new job, even if they offered me those same things, would require me to learn a new set of rules, procedures, and have a trial period. I'd be starting from the bottom basically. Which you never really want to do.
Because of that I would waiver between my decision to search for a new job and stay where I was comfortable. Especially after I'd sent out a million resumes and heard nothing back. Which is totally rude, might I add. At least a rejection email is better than nothing.
But after a few months of searching...I finally got a call back! I was super nervous that I wasn't qualified for this job but I had been searching for so long and gotten so dejected that I figured I would throw my resume out to ANYONE and hope that someone would take pity on me. I mean, I have a pretty damn good resume but I've been turned down for a Barnes & Noble job even though I've worked at 3 libraries and have retail experience. The point is, you never know.
So anyway I applied and I interviewed and I got the job!
I am now the Executive Assistant to the President & CEO at a local nonprofit organization. I've already been there a week and though the beginning was a bit rough (what new job isn't?) I'm really starting to get my bearings and enjoy it.
I'm looking forward to helping out on events, getting grants, writing minutes, and uhhh...all the other things that being an executive assistant entails.
So, basically this is just a long-winded story of why I've been a little MIA on the blog lately. I'm hoping that soon I'll get on a regular schedule and you'll start seeing my posts in your feeds again.
