Well I am officially reentering myself back into the workforce full-time. It has been a year and a half since I took a break from the 40 hour a week 9-5 grind and began my journey as an independant contractor.
I will probably miss the days I spent working in my jammies. Hey, there was no one around so who cared? I have probably spent more time WITHOUT makeup on then WITH. (Which is seriously saying something.)
On the up side I am excited that I will get to talk and interact daily with REAL PEOPLE. I’ve always had my clients to talk to, of course, but essentially I worked alone from my home office. I talked to “Fire” the bearded dragon and a tank full of fish. Occasionally even to the dog when she decided to walk all over my paperwork, so carefully laid out on the floor. Oh, that is a thought. I guess I will have to get myself organized. No spreading paperwork all over the floor. That wouldn’t send the right message about my competence, would it?
Another thing I am just now thinking about… I better get a couple more professional outfits. Sweats don’t count. Shorts are inappropriate. Old race t-shirts probably are against dress code. Hmmm….. this could be exciting. AN EXCUSE FOR A SHOPPING TRIP!
This whole work scenario is just getting better and better. New shoes, new purse, new office supplies…
