take a look at yourself and make a change

In less than two weeks, I start a new job.

Usually, musings of amber murphy doesn't really go there. I tend to blog about my (intermittent) questionable behavior/ my writing woes/ my grandma/ procrastination.

Occasionally, I do mention the bank, usually when I am in the mood to sucker punch either customers or coworkers in the face.

(Sometimes I get a little pissy.)

So, in two weeks I will go to work for a different bank. However, in about six weeks, the bank where I currently work will convert into to that same different bank, via a buy-out merger buy-out that has been in the works since October 2008.

Change, it is a'blowin' in like wind.

I don't much care for change (says the same gal who tried on colleges like they were shoes, attending three schools in four years.) (I graduated, and on time, thankyouverymuch.)

And here's my resume -- settle in for a hell of a paragraph -- I have worked at a nineteen screen movie theatre, Old Navy, TJ Maxx, as a baby-sitter, at a Jesus summer camp, at a conglomerate-ish coffee shop, (what was the name of that place?) at a mall Waldenbooks, Dillards, restaurants including: Rafferty's, Cracker Barrel, Garretts, The Rib Crib, and The Cooker, and at Blockbuster, and as a substitute teacher for little kids and high school students (not on the same day) and as a cafe gal in the library at the University of Kentucky, and as a telemarketer. Finally, I wound up a banker.

I wonder if I forgot any.

That's a lot of change in the span of a decade (okay, twelve years... okay, seventeen years, if you consider that I started baby-sitting at the tender age of eleven.)

For someone who claims to abhor change, it would appear that I am a glutton for punishment. Or, a workaholic. Add work to the list of my addictions.

I vow here and now not to let all this change in the workplace interfere with my blogging. That would be a crying shame, as I would die a little inside each day if I suddenly had no time to write to you.

Yeah, I know.

You're welcome.

Change is good my friend! I think I would go crazy without it, as much as it sucks when I'm having to adjust. Good luck with the new workplace! I'm sure you'll adjust just fine in no time!

I would hate to see your blogging suffer because of work. We'd miss your revelations and snide commentary too much.
carissa: thanks for the vote of confidence. i'll be heading over to your blog now to read post-its.

tina: she rerturns! *does happy dance.*

travener: i think my new handle should be "snide bride."
Good luck with the new job! I hope it works out for you. Trust me, not having blogging time is no fun. I've been home for college 2 1/2 weeks with the worse internet on Earth, well not really, but anyway I feel like I'm missing out on tons. Hopefully, you can figure out a way to work it all in.:)
