I’ve been in my current position for roughly 18 months, with the same company, for almost 3 years. I’m miserable. I don’t feel like my position challenges me, unfortunately, my bosses don’t feel the same way since my quality is lacking. It’s just mindless, mind numbing work. I need a change, but have to stick it out for a few more months.
“What do you want to do?” is the question most often asked, but I don’t have an answer for that. I’m 30 years old, and I can’t fathom what I want to do for the rest of my life. I know this isn’t uncommon, but it’s still a shitty feeling. I see my friends on their career paths, finishing school with degrees they can make use of, in a field that they love. Here I am, sitting, staring at a screen, with my thumb up my butt.
When I say it out loud, I feel silly. Saying that I’m 30 years old, and I want to work in retail just sounds pathetic. In the end, all I want to do is work with people, I love meeting new people, hearing new stories. I would also like a job that makes me travel. haha My dream job, is to work customer service for an airline. Eventually I would like to work myself into a supervisory or management position, but I would rather start from the bottom, and work my way up.
So, when we get to where ever we’re going (at this point it looks like it’ll be Seattle, but a month ago, it was Myrtle Beach, so who knows), that will be my goal. To find a job in customer service, with an airline. I will apply other various places as well, but for once, I want to be happy with my job. I don’t want to dread going in.
You can hold me to this. In fact, I request that you hold me to this.
until next time,
