The last few days have kind of just blown by. Last Thursday was my last day at my job, so needless to say, it was a busy day, tying up loose ends. The whole thing has been quite a weird experience; I really loved working there so it almost feels like I'm mourning a loss. I know-- strange thing to say about your job, but it's true. I know you've probably had a "Steve Jobs" overload the last week, but the other day, I read something he said which meant a lot to me:
"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."
So (thanks to a lovely lady I know), I managed to get a four-week job contract which I started today. It's WORLDS apart from my old job-- but it's good experience, and something to keep me going. Although, I do have to dress "corporate"-- not so easy for a girl who doesn't own a single pair of sensible trousers ;)
Happy Monday-- I think this week is going to fly x
