Day 1 of unemployment…
Friday 11th August 2017 will forever now be known as the day I finally left my job. What started as a 6 week summer temp job when I was fresh out of uni turned into a pretty busy 2 years.
I got lots of lovely cards and gifts in my last few weeks and they were really unexpected so shout out the teaching staff that bought me the flowers and the goodies you really made me feel appreciated. The things that people wrote in the cards really mean a lot and I will miss the people at work very much, but I’m not going to lie I am glad to leave!
From the office, the people I work with the most got me a bag full of treats and I am all about the puns. The bag included:
Even good girls get their hands dirty
Cucumber & mint cleansing hand gel
These lips were made for kissing (and eating cake)
Peppermint lip balm
Handy compact mirror
10 pocket tissues
You’re mucky but I love you
10 handy little wet wipes
All of these items are travel size and will come in so handy for the flight as during my 36 hours travel time I’m going to need to do some freshening up!
Another present in my gift bag was some DKNY Women limited edition perfume which smells AMAZING it is so fresh and light just what I’m going to want to smell like in Aus. Unfortunately it’s a little big for my rucksack so it will going the case but it will 100% coming with!
The person I work most closely with is Chloe and like the little gem she is, she got me a lovely bracelet to match the one she got me at Christmas. They are from a brand called JOMA Jewellery and they come with a little message, this one says:
This little bracelet reminds us to see adventure awaits, life’s full of possibilities!
The message really hits home and just adds to the already brimming excitement that I am feeling!
The bracelet on the left with the envelope attached is the one Chloe gifted me on Friday and the one on the right with the flowers is the one she got me at Christmas.
Leaving work felt really surreal, as I was walking down the stairs leaving it just didn’t feel like that was the last time. I think for the first week it will just feel like I am on holiday, it will definitely be a while before it sinks in that I have left and that I am unemployed… hopefully not for too long!
Either way I plan to enjoy my time off making sure I get to see my family and friends before I go.
P.S 3 WEEKS
