It’s hard not to feel sometimes taken for granted, or a little lost or overwhelmed. Especially with something new. And I am the first to admit that I have in recent weeks in the new job felt a little out of my depth. Although after nearly 3 months is it still a new job, is it really just the job!
Anyway after all this time I'm still finding my rhythm there, but as I've probably written it’s so much different than my last place, then again anywhere could have been a lot different and nicer than the last place of work. What has made it seem more friendly, more welcoming is when the Head of my department has asked for reports from me on something and if it hasn't been what he wanted, I haven't got back an email with 'garbage' 'busha' or sloppy and shameful and no explanation as to what is wrong. Here in my new office I've received feedback and explanation of what needs to be changed. It’s quite a turnaround to receive constructive criticism and also good positive feedback, whether in one case it was the head of my department walking past and giving me a thumbs up or walking past with a well done. After the last office and the atmosphere there, I never believed I would feel comfortable in the job, that the last place had damaged my confidence in my abilities, but while I'm still learning and definitely still a little unsure of myself. I feel more settled and it’s nice if someone is sending an email that my contributions are being noted.
Socially wise, I've actually had a nice and busy week, I was planning to be out tonight, but due to circumstances I'm staying in... Which actually sounds fantastic, so I can get an early night lol. But my weekend has been really good as have most of my evenings this past week and it was nice for a change of pace to have a Friday night with friends instead of my usual stay at home by myself. So thanks to Ronny and Dana for the invite.
Anyway, I hope you like reading and leave a comment please, please :-).
