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 remember what I was doing around this time last year and it’s amazing that it seemed like yesterday!
About a year ago I was:

- Being able to nap between classes
- Walking across campus on a beautiful day
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.
Not that I believe I have a ton of dedicated readers, but I feel I should throw it out that that I am not dead, just extremely busy.
School, Scholar Day and general mayhem have pulled me away for awhile. But stayed tuned to hear about my year and a half long research study!
