As of tomorrow, I’m looking for a new job.

I’m no longer happy where I am. Two weeks ago, I was given a first and final warning for something that I don’t believe warranted a first AND final warning.

After almost six years, I get one warning?

I feel as if my job is constantly in jeopardy. I did not see the warning coming. I know the big boss has been unhappy with me because I have had a bit of time off recently (all rape-related – court, counselling, etc). I think the fact that I was meant to be leaving this year to go to uni in Shepp has also pissed him off.

I just feel like they no longer want me there – or at least, he doesn’t.

It’s not the fun, great, team-oriented place to work that it used to be. Almost everyone there is stressed, unhappy, and wants to leave.

I can’t wait for them to take my job. It’s not worth the risk to me. So now that final exams are over, I will start looking elsewhere.  

It’s so disappointing. I really thought that I would be with the same company until I got my degree and moved on, happily and with no hard feelings.

Now I want to get out as quickly as possible. To find my happiness again, to feel safe and secure and to ensure that I can keep the house and keep the dogs fed.

I guess we’ll see what happens. In the meantime, I’ll keep my head down and try not to upset anyone or lose my job while I’m looking for something else.
