One Door Closed, New One Open

I'm not going to say if this is going to be long or not because I'm tired, however sometimes I still ramble on regarless of exhaustion.

I had a message on my machine from the company I interviewed for when I came home from work last night. I was praying that it meant that I got the job, but it was too late to call back as they close at 5.

They offered me the position, which I gladly took. I'm mostly exhausted from the adrenaline that's been pumping through me since yesterday when I answered the call about my employment varification. Since then I have been off the wall, and just so much adrenaline going through me. I've gabbing all day long, so I need a nap lol.

Okay to the point.

I decided to hand over the company keys today as well as my letter of resignation. Since they started everyone on a 10-99 for payroll, we know that this is the end of us. It'll be shocking if we get our pay tomorrow or the next pay due to us in a couple of weeks.

Had to take a xanax lol since I was beyond freaking out. My insides were screaming.

I handed the letter to the "office manager" aka owner's brother, who read the letter. He was so unbelievably pissed (only because he knew they didn't get all the information they needed from me and now it's too late - otherwise, they would have said "good ridance (sp?)" ).

I said good luck, and I left. 15 minutes after I left, my friend put in her letter of resignation and walked out shortly. As far as I know from what she said, another one is walking after tonight (crappy material to work with and a 10-99 after filling out the W-4 just about 1 1/2 weeks ago). One of my bosses best and most loyal employees may be walking out on him Monday after he meets with a prospective empolyer (where my friend is now hired - his ex-business partner. She's always been amazing, and the place went to shit after she left).

Anyhow, it's done with, and I couldn't be more pleased. I heard from a former employee through my friend that the place I got hired into is an awesome company to work for, and that I have an extremely good chance to work my way to the top (with the company being as good as it is, and with my knowledge and skills).

I'm moving on to more and better opportunities. Yes, this job isn't going to be peaches n cream, however no job is. Every job has it's ups and downs, but I feel I made a very good choice. Plus I have the rest of the week off

I'm not working and wasting my time if there's a 99.9% I'm not going to get paid for it. I'm moving forward, and I feel great, and it may sound stupid, but I'm proud of myself. I didn't just up and quit without a backup, and I stood my ground, and I didn't let this place bring me down. It did, but I didn't allow it to break me, and I honestly feel that I'm a stronger person because of it.

One door closed, but a new one has opened. I strongly believe that things happen for a reason, and I know that my time at this job has not been wasted.

1) This job got me on my feet, and out on my own. It certainly has changed my outlook on life. I can't run to mommy and daddy anymore - well, not for everything, but I'm starting to understand things better, and I'm starting to grow more as a person.

2) I wouldn't have my kitten that I adore perhaps too much. I know, she's a damn cat, but sometimes I feel she's all I have, and she brightens my mood when I'm feeling down. There's never a time where I can look at her and not smile.

3) I've created some bonds, and one very special friendship. She looks out for me, and I sure as hell will look out for her. I'm 21, she's 52. I love her to death, and I'm so thankful to have her in my life. I trust her, and I trust her opinion whether she's telling me something I want to hear or don't want to hear. She tells me as it is, and she gives me new perspectives. She's in my life for a reason, and I feel I'm in her life for a reason as well.

4) I feel that I've become a stronger and more confident person. Not saying that I'm 100% stronger, and 100% confident, but I do have more confidence, and I am starting to be able to stand up for myself and stand my ground. Not always, but I have made some major improvements, and I've had quite a few people comment on the positive change.

Ha! See, exhaustion has nothing to do with my ability to ramble and write a novel

Good for you!!

Way to go. Everything you said is absolutely true. You proved it. You are a stronger person for what you went through and how you handled it.

You should be very proud of yourself. You found yourself in a very trying situation but you were able to handle it in a logical and advantageous way.
