Remember when I said I was quitting my job to be a writer? Well, turns out that idleness doesn’t suit me. And I’m not the most self-motivated. (I haven’t written for this blog in…well, let’s not talk about it.) So I’m back in accounting but this time in the corporate world.
It’s somewhat different from public accounting and it’s challenging, but I like it. It’s a great place to work. We develop and manage hotels which means I get discounts all over the country. Pretty nice perk. Nothing’s perfect but here’s some high points.
- I park in a garage. I was a little leery at first because we all know parking garages can be dangerous but it seems okay. And the best part is you don’t have to wrestle your umbrella into the car when it’s raining.
- There’s good security. You have to have a security badge to make the elevator go up to the fourth floor. With all the shootings on the news, it makes me feel good that they take our safety seriously.
- The bathroom is fancy. I mean, listen, each stall is it’s own little room. It’s always spotless and there’s always enough TP. It matters to me considering where I came from you couldn’t tell if the toilets were even swished at night. But anyway…
- There’s a gym. Not that I frequent it but still it’s there if I suddenly become athletically inclined. It would be a good excuse to go shopping though.
Like I said, nothing’s perfect and there are definitely cons but I know this is where God wants me because no matter how frustrated I get or how hard it is to adapt to a new environment and new people, I’m just so happy I’m not where I was before. Change is hard, but change is good. And at the end of the day, every day, I know that change is exactly what I needed.
