I’ve talked a lot in the past month about Leo starting school. And since all is well on that front I figured I would go somewhere different with this one.
Since I have been in my new position at the bank since April I have already received a promotion of sorts to a different position within the department. I am still working in the International department but instead of mainly focusing on foreign currency, I am now helping on the trade side doing Letters of Credit and documentary collection. While this is all very fascinating (haha!) I have had A LOT to learn. I had no training in international business during my time at the bank and I didn’t take any international business classes while in school. So the past 5 months my brain has been filled to the max with new information. And it feels good! That was one of the reasons I wanted to leave my old position. Granted, not the main one but still! There is still so much to learn and it is actually a lot more difficult than I was expecting but I love being able to go to work and know that I will be learning something new. Or how to do things that I already know how to do better. (On an aside…I don’t really LOVE going to work, just that I love being able to learn new things!) So while some days I feel like there will never be enough time in my day to get all the new stuff learned it feels much better than sitting at a desk all day reading about the going-ons of celebutantes. So a win in my book!
