This has been a long time coming, ladies and gentlemen. A year and a half of working full time while going to school. Several part-time jobs and internships on top of that. Homework, papers, annotated bibliographies, and research. Applications. Interviews. And this announcement is the culmination of it all.
I got a new job!
Yes, you read that correctly! Eleven and a half months after starting this blog to gain discipline and force myself to write on a daily basis, I finally get to start a job in the field I’ve been working toward my entire life, even though I didn’t realize it until a year and a half ago. I will be an instructional designer/technical writer/trainer, and there is even a travel requirement! I’m ready to be challenged and to learn and to grow. I’m ready for something more.
It is going to be difficult to balance school around the new schedule, but other people do it, so I can too. I’m so ready.
Who would have that that, two weeks before ending this whirlwind of a year, I would be starting a job at a new company?
Not this girl.
Love to all of you. There is much to be thankful for.
