New beginnings

Earlier this month, I got offered a job. It’s for a school psychologist position. For obvious reasons, I can’t tell you where. But I can tell you I am excited and nervous all at once. It’s time for new beginnings.

It seems like a lovely community. When I went for the interview, I got a good vibe. The admin staff were lovely as were the students. The principal and two other executive staff who interviewed me made me feel extremely comfortable. And so, when I got offered the job, I didn’t hesitate. I accepted it.

As some of you might know, I was feeling an itch. Wanting a change. Maybe this is it. Sure, it’s not a big sea-change. But it’s a change of work place which I hope, will be a good thing. For starters, the work will be different. It’s a lot more preventative work than my current work where I provide therapy for those with chronic and complex mental health needs. As much as I love my current job, I think it was getting to a point where change in clients was minimal. Plus, the population in the area is getting more and more difficult.

I received my contract late last week and told my manager on Tuesday this week. It was bittersweet. She was surprised and said I’d be missed. It’s nice to be acknowledged. It was harder letting the rest of the team know. I’ve got some good colleagues; ones I’ve spent over 5 years with. It’ll be strange not driving there anymore in the new year. It’ll be strange not sharing my office with M and T.

Yet, I am excited. I am excited to set up a new office. I am excited to get to know new people. I am excited to not have to drive to work and to take public transport instead. I am excited to run new programs and work with a different population.

I start my new job soon after my birthday in mid-January. I finish my current one on the 7th of January. I’m taking some time off and hopefully, going some place in between the two jobs.

I can’t wait.

It’s going to be a new adventure.

    Sanch, the job sounds great. Not sure what sort of psychology work you’ve been doing but think it would be a worthwhile experience to work with young people (and in a supportive educational environment). I’m sure you’ll love it but do understand that sad feeling of having to farewell colleagues who’ve become friends.

    Looking forward to hearing how the new job goes.

    […] In November, I had finished uni for good and had handed in all my assignments. I tried NaNoWriMo but somehow, lost my mojo to write after a week. Unfortunately, this spilled over to my blog and even though I had ideas, the posts just wouldn’t come. I was also preoccupied by a job offer I got at the start of the month but waiting for all the paperwork to arrive. It finally did arrive and I was able to tell my manager about it.
