Be careful what you wish for. Yesterday, I finally found out what my start date will be at my new job. But now that I know I will be definitely working there, I’m suddenly overcome with anxiety. Isn’t it weird that when you’re unemployed or in-between jobs, you feel restless, scared, and confused until you get a new job? Of course, once you do have a job, you feel like groaning…”aw man, I have to go to work.” I really, really, wish sometimes, that I was one of those trust-fund kids who don’t have to work, or be the winner of the lottery. That way, you have the choice to work as little or as much as possible. Don’t get me wrong. I’m very happy I’m starting an excellent new career. Heck, I feel mighty lucky that I got this job since it’s very hard to find a job with today’s market, let alone a job that I actually wanted (out of 2 choices I had for myself). I just don’t like that feeling of anxiety when you’re starting afresh and you don’t know what to expect, you don’t know anyone, and you’re scared you might screw up. In that same vein, I am looking forward to the challenges of this new job, all the new people I will work with, and the chance to grow from this new experience.
