Its been a long time, and i know i've said this before but I'm back at least once a week im going to try and post something, even if its just a funny picture to describe me week. I miss writing and reading other blogs. The blogging community can be a really fun exprience. I cant wait to get in touch with some old bloggers, and hopefully meet some new ones!
Anyway, heres a break down of my crazy life over the past 2 years!
Currently I live in the beautiful city of Calgary,AB.
June 2013, I decided enough was enough. I needed a life of my own, I needed to get a life, and get my shit together. In my home town work was slim pickens. I tried for months and months to find a new job, without taking a pay decrease. I had been at the same job for almost 5 years with no desire to grow within the company, and I hated the job so much I eventually dropped to part time then my doctor placed me on stress leave. Which turned out to be the best day, that job was sucking the life out of me I needed an escape.
Sept 2013, was my first day in calgary. To this day the 5 day drive from Ontario to Alberta was one of the most beautiful things I've seen. It was a bit of a rought start, my first job was doing outbound calls to ask if people were interested in having their furnace ducts cleans. IT WAS THE LONGEST THREE MONTHS OF MY LIFE. I couldnt do it anymore I was just as unhappy as I was at my last job so I quit. Thankfully I was able to get hired on at a dealership as a part time receptionist. That following summer I took vacation and went home for the first time in almost a year. You really truly never know how loved you are or how much you truly love someone until you spend extended time apart.
Eventually I become a full time receptionist, however a few months later I was let go from the job. At the time I was upset however, that experince combined with my call center experience lead me to my current job of 10 months. This job is everything I ever wanted in a job. It allows me to stay in touch with technology, travel the world, and still be in touch with customers.
A typical day at the office includes me taking phone calls from some of the most wonderful people I've had to deal with at dealerships who are having an issue with the software (company I work for) usually its a learning curve and the software works fine the customer just wasnt sure how it actually worked. Sometimes there are problems, at that point theres a lot of testing we try doing to either figure out why its not working, and how to correct it. The best part about the job happens outside of the office.
When a dealership purchases our software the company flies a person for each department at the dealership to train them- I'm on the parts team. So far I've been able to travel to Northbay,Ont. Vermilion,AB. Prince Rupert,BC. Next stops include Wallaceburg,ON. Later this month, Grande Prairie.AB in November and Lindsay,ON in December.
Life has been a rollercoaster these last 2 years a lot of ups and some downs. And I would love to start sharing everything again.
Until next time,
