Chapter XX?

Another leaf, another life. I make leaps toward a future that I bound into excitedly, but age has made me cautious. Life has made me hard. Fear has made me jaded.


The change I’ve been seeking has come; I welcome a new job next month. I am so excited to jump into a brand new day headfirst, although I am torn about what I’m leaving behind. Longer than I’ve been keeping this blog, I’ve been working for and with some of the most talented and wonderful people I’ve ever met. I have an incredible boss. My clients have been incredible. And I’m giving it up for the unknown. But it’s also so. Freaking. Exciting.

In list-related news, this job transition has also coincided with the end of my six-month volunteering venture. I probably would have continued to scoop kitty poops at PetSmart indefinitely, but it seems like an appropriate closure on this chapter as I wave goodbye to the metropolis (cough) of traffic-congested Buckhead and head on my new scooter downtown.

So that said… high time for an update!
