Today is my last day at work. I can’t believe that it’s already been a year. In ten days I’m starting working with adults like I did before and I really look forward to it. All though I never found my calling working in the school system, I have still learnt a lot. And I have also been very happy with the people I’ve met here. They have always been nice and comfortable to be around.
We had lunch together for the last time today. I brought two cakes I struggled with yesterday. To my surprise, my leader had made a cake also, and I almost started to cry. She held a speech where she said so many nice things about me, so I really feel like they are satisfied with the work I’ve done here. The rest of the day has been full of hugs and nice conversions, and this evening some of us will go out and have a drink to say properly goodbye.
It has become a Christmas tradition to write a blog post to say merry Christmas to my readers. This year it wrote far too late; Just ten minutes before the day is over.
How has your evening been? For some Christmas is a filled with love and joy, for some it means feeling lonely.
No matter what, today is another day. Christmas is just one of many days, and what matters most is that we try our best to make every moment count.
I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to my readers. For some, Christmas can be tough, a time where we are reminded of losses. For others it means being together with loved ones and feeling happy. I am celebrating Christmas with my sister, brother and father. My two half-siblings will come later in the evening. We will eat good food and then open Christmas gifts.
I have been nervous for weeks now. My job hunt started two months ago, and since then I have written for applications, been on four interviews, gotten two rejections and waited for the two last one. The last interview was in Bergen on Thursday. I was one of 46 applicants for 5 positions, and one of 14 people who got an interview. Yesterday everything felt a bit hopeless. I thought I had to start the job search process again, and even wrote to my supervisor to see if somebody had called him as a reference (nobody had). So mentally I prepared for swallowing the disappointment and start all over again.
I left work at 15:30 and went to the supermarket to buy some food. I had just bought the groceries when the phone rang. It didn`t even hit me that it could be a job offer, as it was after work for me and I thought I would get a call at the normal work hours. When she presented herself as the woman who interviewed me on Thursday, I wanted to shout out in happiness. I got the job! Even better: It is in Bergen, where I studied to become a psychologist. I have hoped, for years now, that I could go back there. I am not sure if it will be forever, since I have a job here that I might go back to, but I need to take one year with children to become a psychologist specialist, and there is no better place to do it than in Bergen. The job was also the one I wanted the most: They have a huge group of people working there, with many activities after work to bond and create a good atmosphere. I also liked the fact that four new psychologist will start at the same time as me, because it will make it easier to start when I have others who have to learn as much as me. I also have a lot of friends in Bergen, and it will be so good to see them again. I can also do more of what I love to do: Take singing and piano lessons (I haven`t been able to do that the last three months since I moved home after selling my apartment) and work together with musicians to make my own song. There are simply more opportunities in Bergen, and I know it will be good to begin a new phase in my life.
