Just 3 hours ago, I was speaking with a recruiter about a job. Right now, I am sitting in the airport waiting to board my flight. In the span on just 3 hours I landed a job, packed my bags, and got my butt to Logan International Airport.
Over the past two weeks, I have turned down many job offers on some cool sounding boats. Why? I honestly have not a single clue. That’s actually a little lie. I have turned down these offers because I still have to complete my board exams. Waking up this morning, I had every intent of watching my sisters, going to the gym, and then studying for my boards (this is a national exam so I can practice as a therapist). Only two of the three got accomplished. Instead of studying, I had a phone interview for a job and got it. I had no intention on leaving this quickly. In all honesty, I was supposed to be heading to a friend’s house in the Florida Keys next week. Turns out plans change, and I shouldn’t plan anything a week in advanced. That’s just too much of a commitment for my life.
I know, I should take my boards. I have heard this more times than I can actually count. The thing is, if the time comes where I want to actually practice, I will study until my eyes bleed. I will pass, and I will get a job. Until then, I will live my life. I am not the type of person who can be forced to do something. My mom always said, I went to the beat of my own drum and always had to do things my way.
I’m stepping into a new phase of my life, right this very second. A new chapter some may say. The ironic thing about it all, the name of the yacht I am flying to meet name. Oddly enough its name is, New Chapter. How much bigger of a sign can there be? Aside from the name, I found a lucky penny heads up today in the airport. If those two things aren’t good good sign, then honestly what is? If you aren’t aware I 150% believe in signs and everything happens for a reason.
I am on the airport floor typing this feeling a mix of emotions. Excitement and anxious are the two big ones. The second one is totally from being in an airport. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t still I little freaked out. At least I know what to do when shit hits the fan.
One thing is for sure, I am excited to see where this journey goes. At this point in time, it’s just a temp job. I have no idea what is ahead of me, it is one big blank slate. That is the fun this about this new chapter, I have started.
So readers of this blog, stay tuned. I just know there will be some adventures that will be sharing, if y’all of course care to read. I do have to admit to one thing, booking a flight with 3 hours of departure is a pretty awesome thrill. I highly advise you do it, go anywhere! Just go get out of your comfort zone! My next post will be from the yacht somewhere in the Hampton’s. Well, that is if my flight doesn’t get delayed, yet another time!
