First, I must thank all of you for helping me through this struggle with the job offers. I realize that it was a good position to be in, but it consumed almost an entire month’s worth of energy.
I took the position with the small Communications/PR firm near my house. I’m at peace with the decision.
The job in Colorado was a great opportunity, just not for me. It seemed like a sentence, not a job. As I pictured myself working there, I felt heavy and dark. There was no excitement, no room for growth. While it was still in aerospace, it was manufacturing and not operations.
The job at the school was not ideal either. Not only was the salary less than half of what I make now, I just couldn’t see myself getting passionate about marketing school cafeteria lunches.
So number three it is. I’m excited to learn the ropes of a PR firm. I love the business and I’m hopeful that this will afford me the independence I’m looking for in the near future. I no longer hide the fact that my goal is to work from a laptop on a beach in Hawaii while watching Ava build sandcastles. I just hope I can get there before she’s too old to do that anymore.
I officially start on September 12. This gives me two weeks off to try my damndest to finish my master’s project. I have so much work to do and I just couldn’t see myself concentrating on it and a new job at one time.
So, wish me luck! I’m hopeful I made the right decision. But nothing is ever permanent, right?
