As Yet Unsorted

Writing to get where I hope to be.

The Next Chapter

My coworker brought me flowers this morning to officially welcome me to the department. Tomorrow I join the staff of the United Way of Lancaster County, where I’ve been temping since April.

The past year didn’t quite go as planned — perhaps because it was lacking a concrete plan — but I don’t regret leaving my old situation and taking time to try to figure out a new one. A new office job wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but it appeared before me, and sometimes it makes sense to seize that sort of opportunity.

I feel a certain sense of failure for not making a go of going it alone, but the attempt itself was worthwhile. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have taken that marvelous solo drive to Taos and back, and that was worth the price of admission. 

So wish me well in the world of Resource Development; I have a feeling it’s going to push at the edges of some comfort zones.
