It’s now been seven full months since I’ve had to work a flight. Lots of things have changed in that time — new uniforms, a new form of onboard payment, minimum crew requirements, MRT, DRT, a hiring freeze, honey roasted peanuts, onboard Wi-Fi trials, and on and on.
Now I’m due to go back to work in six weeks. I know that’s still a long way off but I’m afraid of what might happen when I go back. Not in terms of my family, but what’s going to happen to my brain?
I feel like I came out of a creative coma since I left work. I have so many projects I want to pursue now. Not to mention the things that I’ve already accomplished. As a part time freelance writer I’ve made $2,000 since going on maternity leave. I know it’s not much in the big picture but that was part time income, with a newborn baby, and I’m just starting out. Imagine what else I could accomplish!
How can I go back to Juice or Coffee? Snack for you, sir? when my passion lies elsewhere?
