Head spinning. Heart pounding. One more shot. One more line. Mouth running. Touch me. It’s Saturday night. And already regretting. Are you on my mind. Or is it the way you made me feel. All that time ago. One more shot. One more line. It’s Sunday morning. And I’m alone.
I spent the day walking around town, spesifcally looking for a new agenda because I’m starting my new job soon. I’ve had the Ban.do agenda on my wishlist for a while, but now that I had set out to buy it the agenda was sold out everywhere. And because shipping to Norway is fucking ridiculous buying it online is a no go.
Maybe I’ll get lucky and snag up the new one coming soon!
Do you have any other tips of cool agendas?
Take a bike ride
Eat brunch with friends
Attend an outdoor concert
Buy fresh flowers for my room
Start outdoor running again
Hang out in the park on Sundays
Sell my clothes at the market
I find myself longing for my own place. Having my own place must mean that I have grown up. Ascended into adult life. Not that I don’t love living with five other girls, having a massive room all to myself and low rent. But I am feeling the crushing pressure of supposedly being a grown up. With a grown up life. A grown up job. Grown up interests.
But me being me instead of doing anything about it I made a collage of inspiration for my fantasy grown up appartment.
Really loving leopard print at the moment.
So I got one of the jobs I applied for. I am now a Maketing Coordinator for the biggest theater production agencies in Norway. Fucking crazy.
Now I am scrabling about trying to figure out what I don’t know but need to know before I start this job.
I am so happy but so scared. Can I do this job? What if I fail? What if this isn’t the right career path for me?
I doubt I am alone in feeling this way, at my age, just stepping into the job market FOR REAL. A propper job, with propper wages, with a ton of responsibilities and talented coworkers.
Trying har to focus on the fact that they DID hire me, and that must mean that I am capable and likeable. Having career self esteem is difficult when, like me, you have been struggeling to get into the job market.
So here are a list of things that might help:
- Set up a couple of meetings with your new boss to get to know the workspace and get an overview of what you will be working on the first week.
- Try to learn a bit morw about the company and fine tune your relevant skill set.
- Get to know you co-workers. Nothing is better than someone at the office having your back.
- Buy new office stationary.
- Plan you first day outfit.
- Start your new bedtime rutine at least one week in advance so you don’t get super tired on you first day.
- Bring something personal to you workspace to make it more your own.
- Be patient, it always takes time to get the hang of a new job.
Hope this helps, and share any tips you might have!
