Hi Good People...
Its me again, just giving you the quick n' dirty update on ya girl. Well, I'm still "jobless" but very happy. I'm not unemployed (doing temporary contract work) but as my wonderful Godfather put it, I'm in a time of "transition." Having decided that corporate America is NOT my cup of tea, I'm heading back to my education roots. There's still a lot of politics there, but at least you can self-medicate against realizing that reality by telling yourself "I'm doing this for the children (greater good, society, etc.)" Anyway, I'm waiting for a couple of offers to pan out and in the mean time, focusing on getting myself into grad school. For what, you may ask? Public Health. Yes, my roots are deeply grounded in public service and since I've always been a bit --ok, a lot--of a science nerd (ask anyone who's been around me for 5 minutes; I've probably told them the exact chemical composition of their meal, shampoo or spit by then) I figured that PH would be a great career move. With the gentle prodding of my overbearing yet well meaning mother of course.
I'm totally excited about it and can't wait to start.
Relationships... I have discovered that I don't stay single for very long. Its not like I go out looking for a man. They just seem to fall in my lap. Maybe its the universe paying me back for having to be painfully single throughout high school and a significant portion of college. Let's just say he's wonderful (so far) and I'm VERY happy. Truth be told, there could be wedding bells in the future with this one. We'll see...
All in all, I am at peace. I feel like my journey is being directed by God and therefore I am fearless. Ok, maybe not fearless, but worries about the future have stopped keeping me up at night. And that is a DEFINITE improvement from 3 months ago.
Like my Godmother said to me a long time ago "My dearest, you are destined for Greatness."
That's my new mantra these days, and boy is it powerful.
Peace and Love
