Today was payday and that always makes Friday that much better! Anyway today was also annual review day at work. I am an admin specialist for an insurance company. I have worked for the company a year and a half now. I started out as a CSR on the phones. About 7 months ago I moved into my current position. I really enjoy my job because I get to help people get their jobs done. I also have been able to learn more about a different part of the company. So today I got to sit down with my supervisor and get feedback about my performance. Those types of meetings always put butterflys in my stomach. But I was very happy when I walked out of my supervisor’s office. I got a raise. Not a go out and be wild kind of raise but an increase is still an increase. The best part was finally have in print that I am good at my job and how I do my work is appreciated by those around me. I got probably one of the best reviews I have ever gotten. And you know what? It was nice. =)
I also received an email about a job that I would love to have and that would pay a lot more than I am making now, even with the raise. The catch? You have to have a Bachelor’s degree. And I have not yet completed my degree. So I think getting that email was the kick in the pants that I needed to finally sit down and figure out my options. Do I continue in the program at Liberty U or do I transfer to a local school? Do I stay with psychology or do I change my major to something like organizational managment? These are questions I have been asking myself for months and still can’t answer. I think part of me is a little scared to choose a path and stick with it. But if there is one thing that I have learned about myself in this past year it is that I can accomplish way more than I have ever given myself credit for.
