Thursday I will be leaving my current job at a non-profit agency, and leaving 4 months of fun experiences behind. You have seen me vent about old people, coworkers with personal space issues, and how I was helping move the agency in the first weeks instead of learning my job. It's been a fun ride, people, but it's time for something new and exciting.
And wow, what a way to dive in...
I am taking a long 3-day weekend before starting my new job. Friday, I plan on getting up and hitting the road around 4am, on my way down to California. I'm determined to spend Father's Day weekend with my boys, and I'm not going to let another financial hiccup stop me. It's an 1,800 mile round trip, but will be well worth it.
Why am I doing this, you may ask? Because it's what I have wanted to do for years.
When I was in California, I worked at a pet food company for nearly 8 years. I sat in practically every seat, and was considered "the glue that held the company together." (My boss' words, not mine, but I loved to repeat them as often as possible) One position I never did but wanted to do was be a sales rep. Not only did they make amazing money, but it looked like a lot of fun.
So now, I'm getting my chance. Sure, if I had the job in Cali, the territory would cover 4 counties and not 4 states, but what better way to familiarize myself with the area than driving the roads and seeing the sights? I haven't blogged a lot about Wyoming or Montana yet, but will have the opportunity as I meet Idaho's whacked-out neighbors.
Most of all, I will blog. This position is going to take its toll on me at first, but writing is my passion. It's my release. If I lose this, I'll lose my sanity.
Besides, I have to keep my Idahomies entertained. It's what I do.
As the illustrious Aunt Becky would say, eye of the motherfucking tiger.
Allright chums, let's do this...
