I apologise in advance for the way I’m about to trample in here with a lot of rattling excitement…
I landed the dream job I mentioned in my last post!
What a rush!
I’m trying not to let myself be swept up in celebration and self-congratulations. I already have about 20 hours of study material lined up to prepare myself for my new job, and there is much more I have to plan for. I have until just about the end of the month to sharpen my knowledge before I’m put in the hot seat, three weeks or so. If I study for at least an hour every work day and at least 4 hours every off day, I should be very well-educated on the fundamentals by the time I start the new job.
Of course, my girlfriend and my family are already working on pre-planning my time on my behalf! As if I will be free to travel and work to-do lists all week long, haha!
I am quick to remind them that I will likely have far less free time for at least the first 2 or 3 months. It’s looking like I will be locked away in my apartment working and studying for the foreseeable future.
But that’s a good thing!
This is what I need. No more weird shift schedule, no more nights and weekends full of mandatory overtime!
I will finally be able to wake up early, get work knocked out and use my own level of productivity to create time to do the things I want to do… Eventually.
As I said, more work is coming my way. It won’t be so intense for long, and I will get that precious quality time with loved ones that I yearn for. But I need to remain disciplined and organized in order to make that happen.
I have to throw out a thanks to the members here for being a great community of sympathy, advice, inspiration and support. Having better tools to become a better source of support to my brother has enabled me to focus on my career!
While many things in the Wreklus family remain somewhat disheveled, we are temporarily unified in pride and hope for the future in some key ways.
I endeavor to continue to be a better son, boyfriend, brother, worker and all around person.
