Its now official. I have been offered a new position with another area of government and have handed in my two weeks' notice to my supervisors. Although I've known about it for a few days now, I haven't really wanted to blog about it or give away too many hints in case I jinxed it or something went horribly wrong. Yes, I guess I AM superstitious but a girl's got to cover all her bases!
I'll be heading to a new office in the core of the city which has both its benefits and drawbacks. Its close to festivals in the summer, indoor shopping and walking in the winter, closer to home / little greenery, away from my friends and colleagues, its very windy (never good for a girl with faux-cheveaux). Weighing the pros and cons though really didn't matter. Due to my current workplace issues, I was going to accept whatever they offered. Luckily for me, they offered me a promotion and a raise, and the people I'll be working with seem fantastic. After flashing my lucky striped neon pink socks during the interview, I wasn't too sure if I would ever hear from them again.
Now I just wait out the next two weeks, counting down the days until I start packing up my desk and taking my plants home for the cats to destroy. And try to train someone to cover for me who will do a semi-decent job. It will be with some sadness that I leave behind a number of really great people but I will definately be keeping in touch with a few of them.
