I start my new job tomorrow.
It’s at Beloit, until mid-October. Basically, if everything goes through I’ll be in charge of new student orientation, clubs and organizations on campus and probably a lot of scary, adult, responsible things that I can’t remember. It’s only temporary and I hope that it gives me more time to get my feet on the ground.
It’s funny though. Last month I was in a dead panic about finding a job and generally feeling inadequate. I feel like my life is on pause at Beloit and this pause keeps getting longer and longer. When does my “real” world begin? I still have all these fears and anxieties about the real world bottled up inside of me, except now I don’t have to face them for another two months.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very excited for this opportunity. It pays well, I get an apartment and a meal plan out of it. I get to see my friends who were abroad in the spring again and I am pretty sure that this position is normally meant for people with masters’ degrees.
I can’t screw that much up in three months, right?
