These last few days have been such a whirlwind of emotions. I’m so happy I got my job offer. I’m over the moon happy! But I’m also sad at the same time. I’m going to be leaving my hubby, my family, my friends…it’s tough, it really is.
I told one of my managers on Thursday. That was so hard! I love my job. I love the people I work with. They’re all amazing! Me and the manager had a little cry together. They were happy tears and sad tears. I’ve only been there for 5 months, but I feel like I was part of one big family. I’m going to miss them. This morning one of my supervisors pretty much let everyone know by accident, I think. Well he was just loud with saying congratulations and when he jokingly said I’ve screwed them. The last part may have been a joke, but it is a sad truth. I don’t want to sound conceited or full of myself, but I rocked at my job. And everyone knows that. I am leaving a big void and some seriously big shoes to fill.
I told my trainer yesterday. So we did a lot of low incline push ups. We did more weighted lunges. And longer planks. Oh my body is hurting! I’m so glad that they don’t do the EXPRESS test anymore at BMQ. It’s the FORCE test, which is slightly easier. If it was still the EXPRESS test I’d be screwed. I still can’t do push ups well and with the old test I would have been required to do a minimum of 9. But that’s no longer necessary. But course staff like to hand out push ups as both punishment and as rewards. Yea…I’m screwed there…lol
This afternoon I went to CHAA for their volunteer appreciation BBQ. It ended up being sort of a going away party for me. Everyone wishing me well and wishing me success. At times I did feel a bit emotional. I don’t know when I’ll see any of these people again.
Hopefully this summer I can spare some time to hit up an airshow or two. But that will all depend on where I am, what phase of my training I’m at, etc….
I think I’ve decided on using my backpacking backpack for my travels next week. I bought this backpack years ago! I’m talking when I still worked at my first job! So close to 8-10 years ago? Any ways, I bought it when I had these grandeur ideas of backpacking through Japan. This store in the mall was having an amazing sale and I got this pack for dirt cheap. It’s pretty big and has a padded back and shoulder straps. If I end up on the 13th floor at BMQ, at least this will be easier to lug up the stairs.
