I know I’ve been a little on the gloom and doom side of things lately but I have to say this whole relocating across the country with about a month worth of notice was HARD! It’s an amazing adventure and I’m so glad we did it but there was a lot of ups and downs on this roller coaster of relocation. I feel like the final piece finally fell into place when I started my new job last Monday.
I was able to find a great place in a firm that specializes in education design, very similar to what I was doing in St. Louis. It’s a small office and everyone has been very welcoming so far. The office is set up to do four 10 hour days and then have Fridays off. Now that we’re settled in down here in Phoenix, I’m excited for long three-day weekends so we can go on road trips to California or Las Vegas or Flagstaff or wherever the mood takes us (Mexico maybe? Who knows.) They say things always work out the way they’re supposed to be in the end but there were most definitely a few months there where I wasn’t so sure. I’m happy (now) that I stuck it out and held out for a job that really suits me and takes my career a step forward. Cheers! CT
