It's been so weird during these past weeks I've been back to work. So much has changed and still, nothing has changed. It's an odd feeling. So how does it feel to be back at work after being away for almost one year and eight months?

The atmosphere is slightly better
You know how I've been dealing with the atmosphere at the work during the previous posts I've been writing about my job and I'm very pleased to say the atmosphere has turned into better. It's not what it used to be, but I can work with this until the day I graduate from school.

It wasn't as weird as I thought it would be
Ok, I was added to a WhatsApp group which includes everyone from our department plus boss so that shit was weird. I don't think I've ever sent anything there. But you know when you've been away for so long you start to overthink, what if they've forgotten me? And not just that, what if they don't like me? I dealt a lot with that kind of thoughts. Also, I was thinking a lot whether or not I was going to fit in as I knew there were going to be so many new people, especially around my own desk. But everything went so well and I'm happy about that.

I don't feel like I'm stuck over there as I already know where my life is heading
The biggest turn off for me used to be that I had no clue where my life would go. I did entrance exams and wrote essays once a year, stressed a lot and after each turn down I lost a piece of my own belief in myself. So as I had no clue where my life was heading and when something would happen, I felt like I'm stuck out there for the rest of my life. After getting into the school I feel like this huge chunk of stress lifted away from my shoulders and I'm feeling a lot more positive now, as I know I will get on with my life. And while I get on, my CV has filled itself with 8 years of work experience at the same place. I've heard long-term working relationships looks good on your CV.

My school starts on Monday, so here's to the new beginnings right!? Have you ever felt that you're stuck with your life somewhere you keep fighting your way out but you keep failing each time?



  1. I'm so glad it's gone well so far. Returning to work after so long can be such a strange, daunting thing, but I'm glad the environment is nicer, that can make the world of difference. Good luck with school on Monday, you'll be amazing đź’›

  2. Good for you, girl! I would be really nervous, too. (I'm quite shy around new faces.) But you're past the hardest part already. Onward and upward!!

  3. Ah I'm so glad your return to work has gone well! I can't imagine how intimidating it must be to come back after such a long time off. I'm glad you're feeling much more confident about your future too, that must be such a relief! Good luck with going back to school, I'm sure it'll be great!

  4. Ah I'm so glad your return went well! Hopefully getting back to school does too! :)

  5. Super pleased that return to work hasn't been too much of a bummer! It's always hard going back after a prolonged period of time away but sometimes the time away can give you perspective :-)
