Rather Labor Weekend for me. I am on call this weekend. Luckily I had a co-worker cover for me on Saturday and Sunday mornings, simply because we are busy. This meant I got to start in the afternoon and only had to put in 8 and 10 hour days on Saturday and Sunday. Today however I have been in the office for 12 hours already and these clients are not any closer to clearing to print.
After 1 year of being back here I am already wondering when exactly I will be laid off. There are changes, radical changes happening. The boss I came back for, her last day is December 1. After twenty-five or thirty years. Offices are closing, systems changing and moral low. The common gossip that I try try try to stay out of is “when is it our turn.”
I am not as scared to loose the job this time. Mostly because I survived last time and more importantly I have held other jobs since working here and I am very fortunate to have a great support system.
Needless to say, I’ve been thinking about “what” I would want to do. A question I’ve never really been able to answer. However I’m getting some clarity and although it is scary to think of this big of a change here are the two things I am looking at.
Getting a degree in nutritional science or nutrition and fitness. Looks like this will take a couple years to accomplish so I would need to stay working somewhere while I worked on this. It is also quite spendy but quite a few career paths to take it in.
The other thing is a yoga certificate. That program is less expensive, takes less time and holds no assurance I would find a position that would support me. It would be easier to find a part time gig and build from there. The two certificates I’m looking at both take 3-6 months and include a two hour class nearly every day. This would be easier to fit in to full time work.
Still looking into accreditations and costs. Also finding a yoga studio to practice in as the proficiency needed to get into the program is higher then my current practice level.
Exciting thoughts…. but for now I have more work that just landed (looks like another late night)
