Last Friday I dropped off the last of the items from my former employer. After working there for a little more than a decade, we decided to go separate ways. When two humans split up you are always wondering where things went wrong. That is hardly the case in this scenario. Don’t you worry, though. I am not going to bore you with my career at my former employer or an analysis of their operations.  I will also try and keep the clichés about chapters and “excitement” to a minimum.

However, I can’t deny that making this change has been treating me well so far. As I am writing this post I still have to figure out what the next step in my career will be. But I am cautiously excited about what will happen next. I am looking forward to interesting technological challenges and projects that will test my skills. There are a lot of things out there that caught my attention which I never got to research or implement and more than a few skills I would like to develop under the wings of my next employer.

I am usually not a big fan of change, but I am genuinely excited about the change in careers and the personal changes I get to make as a result. People around me are telling me that I am already far more relaxed than I was in the past and some people are even “concerned” about me because I seem to be more calm and excited around people. I guess I’ll take that as a compliment, sister. That was a compliment, right?

Originally, this blog post was supposed to be much longer and was supposed to sound like a standard LinkedIN post. But some things just don’t change and I hate writing those sort of posts just as much as I always used to, so this “into the future” post will have to do. For now.
