For those of you who might have missed it on Twitter or FB: guess what guys?
I got a J.O.B.
A real, honest to goodness, they will give me money in exchange for my work and brain and things FULL TIME JOB.
I think it’s going to be a good one too, not an “I’ll take whatever I can get at this point” job. It’s a senior marketing manager position at a stand up paddle board/surf board company, with some real meaty marketing work and management work, both of which I’m super excited about. My new boss is someone I think I’ll be able to learn a lot from, and I’m super excited about that too. We seem to have a pretty good rapport, so I’m all around excited on that front. (I’m also pretty excited that the office is just over 4 miles from my house, not gonna lie). EXCITED, clearly.
(And you guys are all excited that maybe I’ll finally have something else to talk about ?. I know I am).
I start in a week, which will be almost exactly one year from when my last job & I parted ways (11 days would make a year, but who’s counting?), almost exactly one year from my birthday (12 days, but who’s counting?). 36 has, legit, been the one of the hardest years of my life, of my marriage, of my career, and whooooooooooo boy will I be glad to put it in the rear view and see what 37 has to offer. I know this past year has given me (and will continue to reveal, I’m sure) a lot of good lessons and things I need to improve on and the like, but I am still glad to finally (FINALLY) be close to the light at the end of this particular tunnel. I’m excited about the prospects of what’s on the horizon, and the challenges ahead (and a paycheck, let’s be honest here), and of rebuilding a lot of what this past year has torn down.
I have a lot of big plans for this next year is what I’m saying and I’m SO EXCITED to move forward.No tags for this post.
