This post is related to “A lot has happened with me since October 3, 2017.”
The block quote below is my edited journal entry dated October 3, 2017. After receiving a 30-day review, I was emotional. This was how it all began when I decided to pursue a career in nursing.
I worked with the investigative firm for over five years. The reviews began when I screwed up on a approximately 31-page report. And, to be honest, it was not intentional. What could I gain from desiring to screw up the finished product? I reviewed the report I QAed that the client received. What I read disconcerted me! My heart sank. There were many grammatical and spelling mistakes! Somewhere along the QA process something went awry. I did not save my work? I must’ve done a collective undo and did not realize it might have affected my previous edits. I don’t know. I’ll ever know. But, there it was. This bothered me and I ruined my entire weekend thinking about this.
The following week, my boss initiated a 60-day review. I hoped I would pass the review with good results, then things would go back to normal again. But, that did not happen…
I had another review, which I think is so fucking stupid!
My boss could not make this review. He assigned someone else to review me, which annoyed me. I preferred that my boss review me because he cared, he’s experienced, and was trustworthy. He had a way of not making you feel bad. He would point out the good he saw in you. He motivated you to do better.
Now the issue was that I still make a few mistakes on my reports. For example, I overlooked an assigned objective from the referral on one of them. I’m at my goal, but per the reviewer, they still see a few mistakes (spelling, punctuation, etc.).
So, they’re going to audit my work for the next 30 days. Then, we would meet again on November 7 or 8.
Right now, I am so pissed. It’s not worth it any more. Especially, at the rate I’m making per hour.
Right now, I am feeling emotional about this.
I need to look at other career options now.
Be an insurance adjuster.
I don’t want to work for someone else any more. It’s time I work for my self.
So, I conducted my search. First, about being a freelance writer, entry-level freelance writers, earn money as an entry-level freelance writer, content mills, pros and cons of being a freelance writer, and read a dozen blog posts, etc.
I did not bother searching about being an insurance adjuster. I wasn’t interested.
My gut feeling says I should look for employment elsewhere. I know I will find a better job, a better paying job.
I love money. Money is my best friend. Money makes me happy and I want to make more of it, so I don’t have to worry about it.
I am done with being a quality assurance specialist. How about all the documents I QAed that were good? It’s like all they want to see is the mistakes.
The wise thing to do is get another job. Work freelancing, if it’s something I want.
After the review today, I do not feel like going to work anymore. Am I being too emotional about this? I mean, all I have to do is QA fast and with care. It should be an easy task right?
I was expecting to have a good review, not another 60-dayer, and yet, I got another review, but this time it’s a 30-dayer. A shorter one now, which means if this doesn’t not go well, then they would end my employment. I do not want it to go there.
Now, I’m looking at nursing. I’m not so keen on freelancing because I would be working by myself. No income plus no medical insurance for a while. So, its not practical.
I conducted my search on everything about nursing.
Does the career suite my personality?
How much money would I make?
What a nurse does.
Schools. Training programs, etc.
Nursing sounds interesting and the best choice seems to be a registered nurse (RN). I have the personality for it. But, I have to make sure I am working at the same time.
I will ask Kim how she went about it.
Guess I have to be more focused than before.
What does this all mean? What is Source telling me? Where do I want to go with this?
For one, I would like to keep this job. To finance me while I am changing careers. Is this a heads up so that I can be more serious about my career and income?
It all comes down to money. I want to keep money coming in.
My goal is to keep this job. I have to keep this job. This is pushing me out of my comfort zone. So, completely focus and QA fast. I know what to do.
I need your help Universe/Source with the things I cannot control.
Before October 3, I never thought of changing my career and becoming a registered nurse.
