Sorry, I didn’t post yesterday. I was too busy getting tearful about the fact the only interview offers I am getting are for the career path I have just veered off from.
I haven’t heard back from the supermarkets, cafes or coffee shops I’ve applied to. They are probably too suspicious to even bother reaching out to me. “Why does a woman with many years experience and professional qualifications want to just quit procurement and work as a barista part time?” Because I just f*cking want to… that’s why.
I’m scared, guys. Scared I have pigeon holed myself and I’m too far down the rabbit hole to back out now.
They say it’s never too late to make a change, that every passing moment is a chance to turn it all around… but I am not so sure.
Not everyone gets to live their dream. Not everyone gets their happy ending. Some people just have to grit their teeth and do what they have to to survive and I think I am one of those people.
Yikes, that was depressing.
