I have a new career

The reason to my long absence is a few hectic and tumultuous weeks. 
It started with a conversation with a colleague that left both of us filled with anger of a situation (not each other). I really felt that I needed to make a change, which I was working on since I study. My phone rang and a women called me for an interview for a new job, what a weird coincidence. I had sent a request to an employment to different schools in the community over a half a year ago and only went to one interview that didn’t gave me another job.

So, I went to the interview with lots of stress and a migraine that made me feel very dizzy. I don’t have many memories left from the interview other than that I thought that they were asking very nice and no  interrogating questions. I was home from work with my stiff neck and headache the day after.

I waited two weeks without a reply and called to hear if they needed some more information or references but thought they had found a registered teacher. They apologized and wanted to see me again. They offered me a temporary post since I’m not yet  registered. It will be a full time employment teaching math, chemistry, technology and natural sciences at high school.

I feel overwhelmed, excited, exhausted, stressed and happy at the same time. The pressure of my studies this semester is huge.  I’m really concerned about all the assignments that we have to achieve this time along with beginning a completely new profession.


I have also concluded that I need a new wardrobe, completely more corporate. Jackets, cardigans, trousers, flat shoes, shirts (haven’t worn shirts in ages). My body has changed from hourglass to apple the last years and all my old clothes are useless though in mint condition. Thursday night will be my first commission at my new work on a parent meeting…I really need a jacket and trousers until then.

  1. I am so happy about you, Linnea! A new job is something truly wonderful, and it will drop you closer to the life goals you want to achieve. It is normal to feel some stress about the new situation, but I am sure you will be alright as soon as you get used to it.
    I wish you very good luck on your new position!

  2. Ooh, grattis! :)
    Känner igen det där med behöver-helt-ny-garderob. Men att shoppa idag är inte skitkul när man är kräsen! Puh!
    Men det är ju ganska enkla kläder du behöver - det hittar du nog! ;)
    Några snygga leggings, skjortor och skärp kanske?

  3. Grattis!

    Vilken storlek är du nu, och vilken storlek var du innan? Om du har något fint i stl 40/42 som du knappt använt och vill bli av med (byteshandel) så give me a shout:)

  12. That's so awesome, linnea-maria! You don't think you could get away with wearing your Ewa i Walla and Gudrun Sjödén clothes though? Teacher's dress is more formal over there, I guess.

  13. Såklart kommer vi inte att tappa kontakten, vi får skärpa oss och absolut göra små utflykter. Våckelberget på vårsidan är inte så dumt :)
