I got a NEW JOB! Yeahhh!!! I had been keeping my eyes open for a new opportunity, and it finally came along!
My new job makes more sense for FI and I, location wise. We’ve been looking to buy our first home. We both commute quite a ways to work – he drives north, I drive east. As of right now, our house search is kind of constricted to the town that we’re currrently living in, which doesn’t have many options! My new job is in the same town that FI works in so I feel like it kind of broadens our horizens when it come to house hunting.
I also think the work will be a lot more interesting. I like to stay VERY busy. At my current job, it has its’ on-and-off days. Somedays fly by, and some draaag on forever. The new one will be a very fast paced corporate setting ALL the time. However…(I’m getting to the point, lol!)
Last week and this coming week are/will be very bittersweet for me…I love my current job and co-workers (with the exception of a couple of them ) It’s a very small, hometown business where we’re all very close. I’m the youngest employee, so I have several “work moms”! When I broke the news that I put in my notice, everyone cried. I felt AWFUL!
Bonus = new job pays better! My starting pay is 32% greater than what I’m making now after almost 5 years. A job change makes since in so many ways…yet I’m sad to leave all my “work moms”…
Am I just being ridiculous to have some sadness along with my excitement? Any other bees ever been in this situation?
