Going through Big Changes

23 Jul

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks around here. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed lately and haven’t felt like blogging much. I don’t like for blogging to feel like a chore, and, unfortunately, it has felt that way recently. I don’t know why, but it has. I am hoping that it becomes my happy place again soon because I really need one of those right about now. It’s not that I’m unhappy; things are going well, very well. Things are just a little stressful, and new things are on the horizon. I am starting a new job in a couple of weeks, and I am having a hard time dealing with the transition period. I wasn’t seeking out a new job, so it kind of caught me off guard, and I wasn’t prepared to make this transition so suddenly. It is a great opportunity though, something I really couldn’t pass up. It is at a smaller lab here in San Diego. There’s room for growth, and it’s a step up from the position I have at my current job. It is bittersweet though because I’ve been with my current company for 6 years now. I was one of the first few people in my department, and I’ve been through so much with the company and my coworkers. I will miss my coworkers a lot, but I have built lasting relationships with many of them, and I know we will keep in touch. It will be weird to be the “new girl” again because it’s been so long since I have been in those shoes.

I have been experiencing many different emotions related to this new adventure I am about to begin: anxiety, fear, excitement, pride, sadness, guilt, relief. So so many things! This next couple of weeks will be tough because I am filled with anxiety as I anticipate my first day at my new job. I am anticipating what the day-to-day duties and stress level will be like. I am worrying about how my new coworkers will be. Will they be friendly and fun to be around or will I not like them at all? There are so many unknowns as I step into this new endeavor. It’s hard to close such a big chapter in my life, but I’m excited to see what the next one has to offer.
