Well I’ve been on the east coast for about 4 months now. The transition has been…..interesting. Job wise, it was a roller-coaster ride. From tackling opportunities when they come about, to feeling extremely lucky to still be in the running when others around me are falling left and right, I really have no idea how I’m coping with all this. In any case, I’m standing here job in hand. Yeah I’m making a number of mistakes here and there, but it’s a real crash course on the real world I guess. The experience I’m getting from just working in an actual structured environment with responsibilities that are pretty high are something I won’t take lightly. Now is this the job I want to make a career out of? Yeah…..sorry man. I really intend to just do this for two years and move on. I’m not saying it’s a dead end job. I just don’t feel satisfied at the end of the day.
Ah a reason to talk about golf! Well let’s put it this way: even if I shank a shot in golf (or miss a putt), I don’t feel discouraged because I know to the satisfying feeling I get for hitting a dead on shot (or that perfect line on a putt). It’s like “yeah, struggles worth it yo.” *watches shot fly to the flag*
Like I (somewhat) said before, doing a good job feels a bit…..empty. When I get off, I’m just relieved to not think about work. Gah sounds like when I used to work retail. Heck even though I got paid less and did something super monotonous (woo support) I felt my Valve job was more rewarding. But this has to be apart of the process I guess? Get a job that’s meh as a step up to something that’s more rewarding. I hear that story all the time. I just gotta keep at it, maybe tackle those side projects a little harder. Fighting!
Speaking of fighting…..
Spring is kicking my ass.
