Tomorrow is my last day at work.
I am (until tomorrow anyway) a computer programmer. I've been working for the same consulting company for eight years and for the same client for four and half of those. I liked my job, I liked the people I was working with but for a while I'd been thinking that I'd like a change of career, to do something a bit more meaningful hopefully and something I could be passionate about. So I thought about my options. What do I like?
- sewing (thought I haven't done a lot of it)
- architecture and design
I don't have any great skills in any of those things - I've only dabbled in each of them so I didn't feel that I could get a job using any of those skills and I wasn't really sure what to do next.
The unsure of what to do phase probably lasted about two years. In the end I realised that I would never know what else I might like to do unless I gave it a go - so I resigned.
That was six weeks ago. Now, from next Monday I don't have a job, don't have any responsibilities and don't have a plan! Yikes!
