Upside Down

I have just been told that one of our directors has resigned. She's not my direct superior, but I have done a number of projects for her, and she has always championed me when I've needed some back up. She's going back to consulting, which I know she loves so I'm very happy for her, but I'm not so happy for me.

She was going to back me in a bid to move out of my current position into one that's a little more fulfilling for me. Now I'm afraid I'm going to be stuck (haven't heard anything from the interview last Wednesday yet). *sigh* Just when I was feeling that if I was going to have to stay at this company, at least I would have something I liked a little better going on...

I have been telling myself since last February when I started on a search for a new job that everything that fell through did so for a reason: that I still had something to learn here, that there is a different job out there that will come to me when the time is right. It's getting harder and harder to believe myself as the few things/people I enjoy about this job are slowly stripped away.

Hi Angela Rae:)
I am glad you into'd yourself:) Your blog is nice. Sorry to hear that work is stressing you right now. Kinda know where you're coming from, as I am trying to do something more fulfilling as well. Good Luck to you:) I always knit when I'm stressed. It seems to help me work things out. Don't know why...

I'm sorry about your situation at work. I know what it's like to not be happy with what you're doing. But keep believing in yourself. You wll find something better soon.

sorry that work is shitty, but I echo my sister in that you are awesome and some job some day will recognize that. Spike also sends some bites of love. Bite bite.

I'm sorry things aren't going the way you want work-wise and totally understand your frustration! But I do believe things happen for a reason, so something will come up, I'm sure of it.
