so, i started a new job yesterday. working in a pretty sweet building in downtown denver. a mere block-ish from my favorite denver-based burrito joint. not that one, this one. although, chipotle is always a good choices.
the good news is that i get to continue making things happen in digital and social. the bad news is, well, there is no bad news. sure, i have to ride the bus to work, but hey, no more buying gas. you know, because filling up once a month was a hassle to begin with.
i’m down the street from some of my favorite people who work in the area (hello lunch dates). there are a million windows in this office. i can’t even. my last office had nary a window in sight, so this is magical. and, i get to work on a mac again. can you hear the angels singing?
okay, now i’m just bragging. but, the reality is, that sometimes one door closes in life for a reason. cliche, right? i know. but it’s true. my last job was a great experience. i was able to work for a fortune 100, on the “client side,” and can now tout some pretty cool work on my resume. but, due to reasons beyond my control, i was in the market for a new job. and, while this is day two, i’m in awe of how much i know i’ll enjoy this new chapter in my life.
if you had asked me if i would be here a year ago, i would have told you otherwise, because a year ago, i had different aspirations. but things change. people change. even in less than a year. so, yes, while things are different on this 21st day of january, it’s some of the best change i could ask for.
now, if you excuse me, i need to get back to work and figure out how to ride the bus to work tomorrow.
