So it's official. I've given notice at work, and will be finishing up in a month. It has been a great job for the last almost seven years and I've learnt a lot. So much, in fact. I've had lots of great experiences, and met lots of really interesting people. But it's time for a change and I'm really looking forward to it. My lease is also up around the same time, and I've decided not to renew so I'll be moving house too.
What's next you ask?
I have absolutely no idea. I don't have a new job yet, and haven't really applied to many jobs. I'm not even sure what I'd like to do next. I realize that's not particularly responsibly - especially since I'm not a woman of leisure who can just afford to holiday for a month in-between jobs. But at the moment, I'm just so excited with the 'being finished' part, that I'm having trouble focusing completely on the 'starting again' part.
I have dreams of taking off for a few months and traveling the world in-between this job and the next, but the funds aren't really there, so it will probably (hopefully) be a matter of finishing, taking a week or two's break to move house, and then starting a new job.
But that's okay, they say change is as good as a holiday, and I am very much in need of one!
So here's my questions for you:
a) What do you think I should do next? (honestly, any suggestion is likely to be considered. The other day I spent a happy half hour thinking about just how casual and stress-free and utopia-like it would be to work as a Sandwich artist at Subway)
b) If you've ever made any huge life changes and they've turned out good or bad, I'd love to hear them.
Four (and a half) weeks to go!!!!
