Hello my tweetiepies :)
You may have noticed I have not been not much on twitter lately. Things are not great on the job front. My place of work is having to reduce its staff by half and is in the middle of deciding on a new structure and which jobs are going to be be needed within this new structure. Everybody's jobs as they currently stand are going to disappear, and everybody will have to apply for the positions which are going to be made available. In the next months, sometime before June, we are more than likely to receive notification that we are 'going to be put at risk'. This is just basically a letter preparing ourselves for a potential redundancy situation. This is all super complicated, lots of decisions are being taken but the reality is that my job as it stands will disappear and I may or may not be chosen to have another one at my current place of work.
So I have been stressing a bit about all this, this week and not feeling chirpy enough to tweet other than gloomy tweets. All this might be an opportunity to look for another job and relocate in a bigger town as I have been feeling that I've outgrown my very little town. But this means a major upheaval, starting from scratch again: Looking for a job and a place to live simultaneously in a foreign place, on my own.
Individuals might find the prospect to look for a new job challenging but I am finding it very daunting as I have never worked in any other place before. I am already missing the affordability of my current flat and the luxury of not having to share a house with flatmates. I am petrified also at the idea of starting a new job. You know, this feeling of nervousness you presumably have when you start a new job, the first day, and you wonder what it is going to be like, what if the job is too difficult for me bla bla. I never had that either. I started from the bottom, and my current place, I started stuffing envelopes and then moved my way up. I was not nervous with my first job, because I knew that all I would have to do would be to stuff envelopes :) Anyway, I am just a bit worried about all kinds of stuff. So, you guys keep tweeting while I get a little bit perkier again and flood your timeline as before.
lots of love
