I got my first permanent full-time job today. I am the queen of contracts and working part-time in 5 places. I keep my accountant and myself very busy. I can remember taking an 8 month contract somewhere and feeling a little panic. I thought that was a long term commitment. I have worked at places for as many as 9 years, but always kept it auxillary, contract or casual. That way I could come and go as a I please. If the politics got annoying, I just took a break and moved on to somewhere happier for a while.
Right now my office is a happy place. My boss is amazing. There is guide dog who is generally off duty in the office that I get to play with. I am calling my position temporarily permanent (inside voice only…don’t say that out loud at work). The only for certain in life is change. I love change. I am thrilled to be permanent until something changes.
