It has been a while since my last update and there is a lot of things going on. The latest change in my life recently is that I got full-time permanent job and my most important goal was achieved. The priority right now is to keep this job ;)
I work from 9am to 6 pm but generally I can be at work from 8 to 5. I'm on training now so my schedule is a little bit hectic but I hope these working hours will change in the future and I'll be able to start earlier and finish earlier.
In our team we have around 16 people and we are divided in two offices. This team is still growing because of a lot of work to do and new projects that are planned so the company is still looking for more people to join us (and a new office or more space in the same building). As I said, I'm still learning but so far I really like it. My training is very well organized, everyone is involved so I see different points of view and find out more about everyone's experience and daily tasks. This position has "assistant" in its name but it's not like Team Assistant (we already have one) or Admin Assistant, it's more related to finances, taxes, working permits and other things that are related to my financial studies. Did I say that I like it (so far)? ;)
I'm trying to find new schedule/routine/name it. It's not only about my job, it's about menu planning, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, studying, social life and so on. My and my boyfriend were planning some holidays with our friends (long 4x4 trip) but because of my new job I don't have holidays and I don't go. There is a lot of things and preparations to do before their departure and I'm supporting them the best way I can so at this moment our conversations are related to two topics: 4x4 and my new job. So most of the time in the evenings I spend learning new things for my work or working on the garage. It's really crazy time, I tell you!
I'm very happy right now. This job is something I've been fighting for. It's not even two weeks since I started but I just can't believe I work! So it's official: Ladies and Gentelmen, I can cross out "find a job" from my goal list for 2013! :)
