Time for a Cool Change

9 Dec

It’s been a long time coming, but change has finally come for me.

Yesterday I accepted a new job, and today I gave my two-weeks’ notice that I’d be leaving my current company. When I walk out the door on December 24, I will have been at the same place for seven years, three months, and 14 days (but who’s counting?).

Suffice it to say, it’s a time that’s had highs and lows.

My job has afforded me some very cool opportunities, including the chance to write articles about celebrities and to travel to fun places, and for that I’m really grateful.

I’ve also made some great friends that I know will last even though we won’t see each other every day.

Since I’ve always tried to keep this blog a work-free zone, I’m not going to be specific about where I’m going. But I can say there will be a real change to my lifestyle — for one thing, I’ll be driving to work now instead of taking the T — and that will be an adjustment.

But it’s mostly (overwhelmingly) for the better.

I won’t miss the nightly browsing of Craigslist and Media Bistro or the sending out of resumes into a seemingly endless black hole. Instead, now I can devote my time to other, more productive hobbies. Hobbies I’ll actually have time for since I’ll be working more regular hours than I have been.

I really couldn’t be more excited about the whole thing.

Alright, I’ll stop this post there. But if you know me and you want to know more, feel free to send me an email. Otherwise, it’s time to celebrate. I feel like I’ve certainly earned it.
