People sure have a great way of letting you know you are not where you’re supposed to be! Of course, most times they don’t even realize it–actually, I don’t think they ever do. It’s just something that you know inside and everyone keeps confirming it.
By now everyone should know that I will be going back to school–full time–this fall. If you haven’t figured it out yet that also means I’m quitting my job! Now, true, I recognized the fact that I have been in this position (this industry really) too long way before I decided to go back to school. I thought everything would be ok after that. You know, I recognized that this is not where God needs me to be, I responded, and I’m making changes! So…what else needs to be done? I don’t know, but all this week it’s been constant reminder and reminder that I do not need to be here anymore. Earlier in the week we were talking about our benefits and we were trying to figure out if I get more vacation time now or next year. I’ve been here about 4.5 years, but were trying to figure out if I could get it now since this is my fifth calendar year. Anyway, this girl was like, “you’ve been here for 5 years?! WOW!! That’s a really long time! That is so impressive! I didn’t know people stayed on jobs that long anymore.” Yeah…thanks! I know! lol, and then everyday on the phone I’d talk to someone who’s been calling at least since I first got started. It was the same story with all of them: you’re still there? You’re still answering the phones? You should be in management by now. So-in-so is the team leader now? Didn’t he get here after you? I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW! I’m glad everyone recognizes that it appears that my “career” is stagnant. I don’t really care seeing as how I’m going to school to get a new career, but I wonder why this happened all at the same time. Does it mean something? Am I supposed to leave sooner than I planned?? Definitely need to pray about this one! Thoughts?
