My super exciting news (which some of you already knew and most of you probably guessed): I accepted a job offer! I was told I was going to receive an offer from this company about two weeks ago, but didn't want to "announce" it until I officially accepted it, which I did via phone while in Lahaina on Wednesday.
I start next Monday and couldn't be more scared and excited. It's been five whole years since I've had a first day of a new job and I don't know what to expect. But, I'm motivated and ready to start the new chapter.
And since you are probably wondering...I'll be a a Project Coordinator working for the Learning and Development team of a social networking company. The perks will be sweet (free lunches, free gym, Philz Coffee on campus), but what I am most looking forward to is being apart of a small team that seems to have a lot of fun and stays very busy. Busy makes me happy.
I'm spending the week mentally preparing myself for the new job and taking care of some loose ends around here (taxes, cleaning out closets, errands, etc.). And, of course, shopping for new clothes.
So...Hawaii last week and new job next week. Life is good, my friends.
Thanks so much for your kind emails and support as I went through this crazy career transition!
And now, tell me about your last first day of your current job. You survived, right? Please leave words of wisdom below.
