New Job Nerves

Happy Sunday everyone!


A lot is changing around here because I start my new job tomorrow (eeek). I think it would be weird if I wasn’t nervous, but it still doesn’t make me feel any better to think ‘oh everyone feels like this’. So here I am, writing this post with my first day outfit laid out, lunch is made and my alarm is set. Off we go.

I’ve only had proper ‘work first day’ nerves once before, when I started my job last September. It’s such a weird feeling because while feeling scared, you also feel excited. Excited to start something new, start a new challenge and to meet new people. But those exact thoughts are also the ones that scare me. What if the job is too challenging? What if no one likes me? What if I don’t like the job?

I am currently feeling all of the descriptive words you can think for worried; anxious, nervous, apprehensive. You name it, it’s there. So I thought I’d chat you through my plans for tonight and how I’m going to try to stay relaxed and in a positive mindset.

01. I’ve planned my outfit. I know exactly what I’m going to wear, it’s something I feel comfortable, pretty and confident in and I know I’m going to feel good getting dressed in the morning.

02. My bag is packed with lunch, notebooks, pens, any ID – it’s basically all prepared. As you can tell by this list, my way to stay calm is by having everything organised and ready to go so I don’t forget anything or get caught out. This is just the way I am, if I’m nervous for anything the best way I deal with it is to make sure I’m prepared as I can be.

03. It’s full on pamper mode. I’m going to have a bath, wash my hair, paint my nails and put a face mask on. I want to feel my best tomorrow and also, it really chills me out by taking time to do all these pamper things.

04. Love Island at 9, bed by 10. I’m definitely going to get an early night. There’s nothing worst than waking up feeling groggy and just thinking to yourself WHY didn’t I go to bed earlier?! So I’ll obviously still be watching Love Island, but then it’s straight to bed – to go and overthink for a few hours probably.

So I’m off to get myself ready for tomorrow and officially start my job as an assistant psychologist in the NHS. Wow. When and how did this happen?!

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. Apologies for how long it has taken for me to read this post, it’s been a busy few weeks. How is the job coming along? Are you enjoying? Were any of your fears confirmed? xx


    1. Thank you! It went well thank you – it was at the training centre so a lot of information but I start at my workplace properly tomorrow. Ahh good luck with your new job too, when do you start? xx


  2. May I first of all say congrats to you? Like it’s so amazing to hear that you’ve got that job – you should give yourself that credit ❤ I know it's not quiet the same, but I'm starting high school by the end of August, and I'm also really nervous but at the same time beyond excited! I guess what I'm trying to say is; that in less then two months it will all feel like an everyday thing. We just have to remind ourselves of that. Anyway, I hope you'll have a wonderful week and enjoy this lovely Summer!! You're strong, you're amazing and you'll make it xx

    1. Aww thank you so much! I think starting anything new is always nerve wracking so I completely understand why you’re nervous to start high school. That’s such a good thought though – in 2 months we’ll be in the swing of it and won’t be nervous anymore. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer before starting school 🙂 xx
