greener pastures


I'm officially job hunting!!!


I'm so excited!!!


and bloody scared all at the same time...


i like my comfort zone too much...


i need to cut those apron strings and then.. hell i hope a better job, that's what!

... I've done my CV for the first time in absolute years... which was surprising in itself... but then i couldn't get my damn head out of the gutter... sentences like these... in my CV... just kinda made me giggle...

"always putting the client’s satisfaction first..." mwhhhhhhhhhahahahahahaha...

so yes, I'm out there... it's very scary for me... there are so many "what if" scenarios running through my head... but i just have to do this... I've been with the same company and boss for a whopping 12 years straight... i feel like I'm betraying her for some reason... but then again~ maybe she should feel SHE'S betraying ME every time she pays my salary... ha... and that obviously doesn't bother her one bit...

wish me luck!

What a familiar feeling of " betraying". That's what I felt leaving school and quitting teaching. Fortunatelly it came and gone pretty soon

I'm sure you'll get a much better job really soon ;) Good luck!

Being Brazen said...

GOOD LUCK !!!!! :) Job hunting can be a rather annoying process...hope your hunting goes smoothly and well.

Kingcover said...

I bet you'll burst out laughing when you fill out the part in the job application where it says "What do you think you'll bring to the 'position'" Make sure you don't include the words '69, doggie or hanging off bed' ;-)

Seriously though, good luck with your hunting. Hopefully you'll find something where you are more appreciated :-)

Donnnnn said...

I love the lingo that we use on our CVs...the embellished histrionic tone of the phrasology..

all they really want to know is if you'll show up on time..sober..unarmed..and won't steal stuff from the supply room.

Kingcover said...

Is that a new position or something you should out during a passionate moment? *snicker* ;-)

Slyde said...

i may be joining you soon.. i need to get out of my current work rut.

Gill said...

Oooh good luck! Hope you find that perfect job very, very soon :-)

leez said...

Isnt it surprising how we feel guilty for wanting to move onto to bigger and better things. How we forget for a moment that we wouldnt have to leave if we were truly satisfied in the first place.

Speaking of satisfaction... rather leave that sentence out. Kinda like customer satisfacton gauranteed...

Michelle Hix said...

angel said...
