Who would have thought, a couple days after writing my new years resolution goals, where I wrote that I didn't have any goals for jobs or my career because I didn't know where that was going that I would have gotten a full time job. It's kind of a bittersweet feeling, on one hand I'm so happy and proud of myself for achieving this because it's the role that I'd set as my dream job, in a small company that works in the interior design industry.
I mean are you kidding me?! It's bloody awesome! But on the other hand I'm also like well there goes my freedom to do nothing anymore, but
I think this is a good thing because if I'm completely honest with you - I'm going a bit crazy not doing anything. It's scary though, next week my life as I know it will be flipped on it's head. I'll be working 9-5, 5 days a week in a really trendy area of Melbourne!
It's crazy because I didn't think I would be able to get a job this quick after graduating. You hear all the horror stories of people who graduate and six months, even a year after graduating they still can't find a suitable position - or even just a role that partly relates back to what they studied. It's been 16 days since I graduated, 16!! I've had friends asking me how I've done it and I honestly don't know. Well for the first place, I've been looking for a job since I finished university for the semester. I narrowed down what kind of role I was looking for and just applied for everything I saw, even if technically I wasn't qualified enough for the role!
I'm excited for the change, for the challenge of pushing myself to be creative again, for meeting new people, for working in a new industry
and for reaching my goals. Hopefully I will be able to share some of my journey and challenges that I face here on my blog! But in the meantime if you want to stay up to date with everything I'm posting you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram.
