New job jitters


Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram, will have already have heard the news that I’ve got a new job. It’s been the cause of a lot of upheaval and left me feeling like I haven’t known where my head is most of the time.. So I guess it goes without saying that it’s impacted my writing.

I had my first day today, and while I knew I was excited for new challenges, I had forgotten how nerve-racking first days can be. As I went into the building, I realised I didn’t know anyone and I was starting again. And in a a job that I didn’t know inside out. Then childish thoughts started to creep in: ‘what if no one likes me’, ‘what if I’m alone at lunch time’. It’s funny how new chapters can bring about so much anxiety. 

Once I’d gotten inside (and over my initial hiccups) though, I was welcomed in by the team and of course all of my fears seemed completely irrational. Although I built a little family at my last job, I felt like I’d been given an amazing opportunity with this new role and I’d be an idiot to turn it down. It’s sent me in a different direction for the moment, but who knows what’s next.

Change is good, but it’s definitely a little disruptive.

It’s also left me in need of a whole new wardrobe. I’ve gone from a very relaxed agency environment to a much more corporate one. Back to searching for the perfect work wear then I guess..

    Awwwwwwww I can so sympathise with this! I was terrified when I started work up here, you feel like you're about 11 starting High School again! It now feels like I've been there for ages though and I'm sure you'll settle really quickly x

    Congratulations on your new job, Hannah! The first day is definitely, definitely always scary but most often things do work out. Although having to put together a new corporate wardrobe is always a challenge. Good luck finding pieces you love that are still office appropriate – it looks like you're off to a good start 🙂
