The significance of today snuck up on me last yesterday afternoon.
Today, July 6th, is the one year anniversary of starting my “big girl job.” It’s a little crazy to think that at this point last year, I showed up to this agency with a combination of nervousness and excitement. I was amazed that I had my own office, with a window and a real door and I loved it.
On my very first day I was assigned several projects and I was amazed by the responsibility that I was given. In my internships, I wrote a total of about 5 news releases. By the time I finished my first week here (at part time) I’d already written more than that.
I’ve been getting the back to school ads and emails about buying new textbooks. It was always a bittersweet time because summer was over, but I also liked school. Text books cost a fortune, but I got some new clothes.
Now it’s just all sweet.
I accomplished the goal of graduating from college. I don’t have to go to school anymore to do what I want. My learning process is much less rushed with that BA in its nice frame.
Since I love to learn, I doubt that I’m totally done with school forever. Who knows? I may go back someday. I still keep up on industry trends and make sure that I’m up to date on important information. But it’s nice to know that I never have to suffer through a stats class again or worry about retaining scientific information.
