Goodbye January 2017

Goodbye January,

wow, the first month is already over and for me, it was one hell of a roller coaster ride. As some of you may know, I started a new job and what can I say, I didn’t really have a good start. I was really sick and basically left on my first day to go see a doctor, after only an hour. In total, I was on sick leave for almost two weeks and boy did I feel sorry for myself. I never get sick like this and it was no fun at all. Imagine starting a new job and being sick from the get go. I’m pretty sure that I won’t be employee of the month.

Aside from being sick, the thought of going from being unemployed for more than a year to full-time was hard to digest, as well. Sure, it was about time for me to move forward but it was so hard for me to get my head around it. Even when you’re not happy, you just get used to a certain situation and I was used to simply doing nothing. I had so much time to myself and now, it’s the exact opposite. I drove myself crazy and thought I couldn’t do it but I had to push through and now, I’m good.

I was blessed to work with some awesome people and those girls are just fabulous. Not once did someone give me a weird vibe for starting out being sick. They are super helpful and understanding and we get along, just great. I’m actually sad that sometime in the future, I will change locations because it totally makes more sense for me in terms of distance and region, but I will definitely miss most of my current co-workers. I was also able to catch up pretty fast and already wrote my first huge article for the paper and I’m really proud of it. In case you don’t know what the hell I’m even doing, I’m working in journalism and the first story for a new job is always special to me. People at work really liked it and it meant a lot to me.

So, my January included being super sick, starting a new job and not to forget, having grandma live with us for two weeks for health reasons. I love my family and all but that didn’t make adjusting to the new situation much easier. But the month is over and I’m looking forward to February, aka my birthday month. It’s supposed to get a little warmer as well and I’m so ready for spring, although I doubt that winter is over. For my taste, we definitely had enough snow but knowing from the past, it probably wasn’t the last of it.

I really hope that this month, I will fully adjust to everything and find a new rhythm. Getting up at 6 am will never be my thing though. And 10+ hour-days will always be exhausting, but I knew what I was getting myself into. I just have to find a way to get a few things done during the week, like blogging, tweeting, catching up with people etc. but currently, I can’t do more than get up, work, eat, sleep. Welcome to adult life.

Tons of love,
