I arrived home from Germany on August 14th. I had plans to start going to the gym early in the mornings, to go out every night to catch up with friends and family, and to just enjoy my week long vacation before school starts.
Well. It hasn’t exactly happened that way. Life sure does know how to throw curveballs.
On Wednesday, I received word from my supervisor that there was no need for me to return to work as they were able to cover my hours with the staff they had in office. She referred me to an HR specialist and also mentioned that she’d be in touch if she heard of any jobs within the hospital on her end. I immediately called the HR Specialist and she told me to look online to see what was available and to call her should I see any jobs in the hospital that I’d want to pursue.
Without taking a moment to process what happened, I immediately pulled up websites and started looking for and applying to jobs.
When Ma Dukes came home from work last night, she mentioned that she was going to be having back surgery and that she’d be on leave from work post surgery WITHOUT pay for an unknown amount of time.
So far, I’m surprisingly not shaken by everything that’s been going on. I remain optimistic that all will work itself out as it usually does. All I can do is pray, continue to put in applications and keep pushing forward.
I start my final year of college in a few days, I still have my health, I’m still partially employed and I even dropped a few pounds while in Germany. Things could always be worse, right? *knocks on wood*
