over work… moving forward

It is after contemplation that you will submit a resignation letter. Yet, shouldn’t it be after you signed a contract with another company? Well, I did both.

My first official job was with a prestigious local newspaper. I was a copy specialist of the creative team and to define that would require another paragraph—let’s just say I converted files to PDF. I enjoyed and learned a lot with my stay there. I matured as a person and learned to play in a team. I thought the hardest part of getting another job is looking for it. I was completely wrong. I forgot I my work was about advertisement and 90% of it during Sundays is job posts. Resigning for the first time is nothing… nothing easy. Though my pay was small and won’t fit in an expanding budget list with two kids in tow, I was with a company that meant much to me like a family. I stayed for almost four years.

Then I met a self publishing company. The pay is good, the work schedule and benefits are perfect for a mom with little kids and the job is even better. As an avid reader of anything with lots of pages, I found book interior designing awesome to the power of ten. It’s a dream came true. I have to hit quota, yes, but that did not prevent me to read, firsthand. I even made a book wish list for the books I wasn’t able to read but would like to someday. But at a certain point, one thing reminded me why I graduated from my much enjoyed college degree. Time reminded me of my age and my true purpose. All this time, God is unconsciously gearing me for something big. That big thing came at the right time: in the middle of amortization, tuition fees and a dream to take the teacher’s board exam.

Connectivity is an amusing word. I am with the publishing industry for six years. My first job connected to my second through its own nature of advertising service. My second job connected me to the third through the elevator, one floor down.

Resignation now comes a bit easy than the first though I am sad because I am leaving my friends and my firsthand reading activity. But I am quite forgetful. I forgot that my next job entails reading manuscripts and restructuring. Talk about firsthand reading, huh.

In two weeks time I am to work as someone I did not think I would become—an editor. I may not be that prepared but I believe in myself. I have come this far and I thank God for the love.
