Big Changes!

Guys, this is my last week at my current job.  I start working as a campus operations manager at an awesome code school for adults next Monday!  I hardly know what to write about, because I really want to tell you everything!  I'm so excited!

The company I'm finishing up at has been a wonderful learning and growing experience.  Some of the girls and I have become especially fond of each other, and I truly hope the relationships I formed there don't end on Friday.  When an opportunity came for even more growth, though, and for a new environment and a new role where I could be more involved in helping people of the community, I dove head first.

I felt like I couldn't revise my resume fast enough!  I edited in my new position, jazzed it up to look a bit more modern, then sent it off to the generic "I want a job" company email address accompanied by an exorbitantly overconfident email.  Apparently, my confidence worked, because on the following Monday, I got an email back from the founder!  He asked me to come into the office that day!  When I read that, my heart went into all kinds of flutters and my pits started sweating more than I think they ever have.  I was nervous, but excited, and I plowed ahead.

If you couldn't guess, this company moves fast.  Providence would have it that I loved them, and they loved me, and by Wednesday, I'd accepted an offer.  I was so dang stoked!

So, in the next few weeks, I'll be learning the ropes of a new job at a company that moves super fast.  Woohoo!  I'm known as a quick study where I've worked for the last year and a half, but I'm thinking this new place will take some getting used to.  I'll be working with some excellent people, though, and they've all told me they're more than willing to help me when I need it.  With a work environment like that, how can you not succeed?

Keep me in your thoughts and prayers February 23rd!  It's going to be an interesting ride!
