In Love

One of my biggest complaints about my last job is that I was extremely bored. It drives me nuts to be bored. Its not that I didn’t have anything to do, but it was just slow. And I had a hard time waiting on things to get finished. I like something that’s constant with a few breaks for breathing. I also didn’t have final say on things and I wasn’t working with a team. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to meet a timeline and have something held up for review that shouldn’t of taken long to review.

I really thrive in a team environment.

It’s invigorating and something that I truly miss. The job I’ve taken is pretty much a disaster. I really can’t go into the details, but lets just say there is a lot going on and when you don’t have enough staff, things slip. I’m in love. It’s going to be a challenge and I so wanted a challenge. The office is also enjoyable too, so despite the workload, it’s not going to suck as long as it’s a good work environment.

I’m so glad I took the chance to apply to this and I’m happy that I got selected for the position.

While I really can’t talk about what I do, I may highlight some of the issues on here as they relate through environmental awareness. My career choice of moving into the regulatory realm is probably one of the best choices I’ve ever made for myself. I feel like I’m doing good when I can help clean up some form of contamination (or prevent a said contamination). I really feel I’m upholding one of the most important values of my career area: upholding public health and safety.

And that is extremely important to me.


  1. It is important to be in love with what you do, or at least like it. Slaving away in something you don’t like makes it hard to work in. I’m glad you got the position! ^^

      Yes! And while I loved the people I worked with in my last job, I missed the challenge. The lack of challenge made it really hard to be motivated to go in some days. I think the only thing I’m concerned with the new job is the potential to be overwhelmed. Something I didn’t mention is that both of my counter parts had to go on leave (one planned, one emergency). I’m on my own for two weeks and I still don’t have a computer to do anything on yet. It’s going to get vvvveerrryyyy interesting lol

    I successfully arrived and now have you bookmarked ๐Ÿ™‚ I admire you for being able to keep up a regular blog, many times I’ve tried and many times I fallen flat on my face! It’s amazing to be able to do a job you love, and one that can make a real difference in the world is an extra bonus. Je suis trรจs heureux pour toi, bravo!

      Merci ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I’ve kept an online journal for the last 16 years… I just did that math and can’t believe I’ve been doing it that long. The world has changed so much now and networking is a big thing in order not to get bored with keeping one… which gets difficult because there’s not a whole lot of online communities anymore to help with linking up =/

      I think its a great sign since I’m only two weeks into this job. If I felt any differently after two weeks, I’d be fretting about my choice lol
