It feels like the past month or so has flown by. In the middle of April, I got offered a job as a Communications Manager for Maria Droste Counseling Center (non-profit). Since that means I will now have to live with two weeks of vacation a year (grad school spoiled me!!), I quickly took a trip to Utah to see my family and a trip to NYC to see Annalisa. In the two weeks before I started my job, I was home for only 2-3 days. In those few days I had to get my hair cut, go to the optometrist (traumatizing, as always), and buy work-appropriate attire. Needless to say, there was not a lot of time to relax before the transition from endless free time to working full time.
As of yesterday, I have been working here for two weeks. The first few days were a little overwhelming, but since then it’s been great. I’m constantly busy which I love, and I really enjoy the projects I’m working on. I feel like I am going to have the opportunity to build on my current skill set and be able to do a lot of new things which is exciting. Although it feels strange to be sitting at a desk all day instead of sitting in class and writing papers, I’m excited to be in this new phase of life and can’t wait to see what’s to come.
