I gave notice at Verizon Wireless. I have marked eight squares on my calendar, which I’m checking off one by one. Yep, eight more days of the “call mines,” and then I’m free! I don’t know what my next job will be, and the economy looks dire. Melodie Beattie calls this “stepping out into the great unknown.” But I don’t care. At least, I won’t be at VZW, and that is cause for celebration.
What did I learn this past year on the job? That I do not like jobs with a lot of stress and negativity. That I don’t want to be on the phones anymore, trying to fix other peoples’ problems. I need a nice quiet job where I can take a fresh breath once in a while. One that doesn’t focus on people kvetching and complaining all the time.
I’ll even be able to get back to my blogging and writing. Sounds like heaven.
