So I quit and have received mixed reactions at work. My supervisors are surprized, they thought I was doing fine and had no clue that this job was not for me. I’ve had people thanking me for the time I spent with them trying to figure this job out and then I’ve had other comments made that kinda pissed me off. Someone told me that they agreed this wasn’t the place for me and that it was a good decision. I just stood there staring at them like, ‘Did you actually just say that?’ I am hoping it was a failed attempt at a compliment or an agreement, but it felt mean to me. Maybe I’m just too sensitive.

Anyhoo, end of the month I am only a Cantor at Church making what my organist says is ‘Way less than I am worth’. Which is why I thought about many different things to bide my time waiting for that unattainable position in a Public School. Now I am simply floating in a sea of possiblities waiting for the storm to pass, lighting up the way God really has planned for me. I just know in my heart of hearts this was not it.

I’ll keep the updates coming, I am amazed that anyone actually cares. It makes me feel better knowing I am not the only one out here that feels dissapointed with their job. So thank you everyone for the words of validation and support!! It means a lot ot me when constructive comments are made, you are all very kind to help keep me sane right now. 🙂 🙂 Please let me know if I can ever return the favor.
