Chapter 1: My first real job – comes to an end

I bought a car this weekend!!

That's my baby

I’m so excited. It’s my very first BRAND NEW car. I’ve had a car before, but it was old and didn’t have that new car smell. It took two full days out of my four-day weekend, but I got it done and I will have a car for my first day at my new job.

New car, new job, new beginnings.

I got really sad today. The boyfriend sent me a meeting invite for my last day at work lunch. It made me sad because it’s the end of this chapter in my life. A chapter I am very happy to be closing, but one that I will never forget. It was here (at the office) where I met the boyfriend, where we became friends and eventually a little more. It was here where I realized that I was not happy in my previous relationship and that I had a true friend who lent me his shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen. It was here, one day after work while we were sitting in a park, where he told me he loved me.

I never expected when I started here that I would meet the love of my life. But since it happened, I never pictured our life apart. My moving on to another job does not mean our life is any less together; we just don’t get to share our lunch bags anymore, or go on our coffee breaks together. And no matter how much I will miss seeing his face all day long; this change will be good for us.

I’m looking forward to being excited to see him at the end of the day. I can’t wait to have so much to talk about because we didn’t get to talk about it at lunch or on our break. It will also be nice to be 100% open about our relationship. Not that it isn’t obvious, but I’ve felt uncomfortable discussing it at work. I’m excited that we will have two Christmas parties to attend. It’s almost like to have to convince myself that I’m excited to be away from the boyfriend when we all know that it’s impossible to get excited about something like that.

It will be a big change. I will be sad and I’m sure he will be sad.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. I met one of the most special men i’ve ever met at work and getting up to go to work everyday was a blessing simply because I got to see him … AGAIN. When I left it was hard and I realised the hardest part about it was that I was leaving him, it took a while but like you said I realised I wasn’t leaving him behind; we were just being given the opportunity to move forward.
