Why I Left My Job + What's Next For Me
So it's been some time now since I began to elude to a change in my personal life! Things have been up and down since the beginning of January! And so now with the waiting game beginning again, I've decided to open up about why I had to leave my job and what I'm hoping for next! Scroll Down to Real More!
So Let's go back almost seven years! I hadn't even applied to university yet but I had just moved back in with my mom and sibling and new I needed a job! Mom and I walked into the new gym up the road from us and did a fitness evaluation...then I found out they just so happened to be looking for a front desk girl! I had always been a lover of working out and did it at home, and very rarely visited a gym, so I was excited at the idea!
Went in for an interview and days later got the job!! Six and a half years later I had to leave my beloved job! I had never had a job so long, learned a lot about myself and how to do deal with costumers, test drove new positions and more!
On December 28th 2016 it was decided that I was no longer making enough hours to sensibly continue working at my beloved job! And to be fair I had started to notice the dip in my hours and the desire to do and have more!
----------------------------------------- Fast Forward to January 2017 -------------------------------------
It was a weird time not working and I realized it was time to look into other opportunities! So I applied for a short course to better take on an offer that came up previously but I stubbornly ignored. This opportunity was one that came up before but I was not ready to leave my job and it wasn't really presented to me in the best of ways so ...I said no...not realizing that not one but TWO of my siblings already work in this field and both are doing very well!
So I dove in and spent two weeks in Downtown Toronto learning all about this new venture (for me) and studied and read and prepared for a big exam. I planned to crush this exam on the first go....and I didn't.
Failing my first exam ever (since high school), and by ONLY 6 points...for me (the recovering perfectionist) was C R U S H I N G!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cried for most of that day until my baba came to my side! So upon getting that news and wallowing in self pity for a little while I..being me, decided that the fail was not the end! So I've been studying steadily and took my re-write exam on Wednesday and...
I JUST GOT WORD I PASSED BY 80%!!!!
What's Next For Me?
Once I get my official passing grade and my official certification I have a job opportunity already lined up and I intend to start it asap!
Then after working a decent paying job for at least two months I plan for my baba and I to finally get our own apartment! And the rest of the year will be about learning more about my business, gaining more independence and living more in the way that I want to rather than have been dreaming about!
What I want for the rest of 2017:
-Getting an Apartment
-Creating a home for us
-Get Passport and save to travel
-Invest in a New Camera
-Create my Diva Den
-Start my Youtube Channel
So 2017 is a BIG year for us and a lot of transitions that are both scary and exhilarating!
