So. If you live anywhere near me, you probably noticed it snowed a bit the past few days. THE INTERNET EXPLODED. I mean, so many good photo opportunities! The last few years, I made it an obligation to myself to take pictures whenever the first real snow would make its appearance, and it always filled me with excitement. This year, I don't seem to care as much. I still managed to slip out for 5 minutes before having to catch my bus to take a few pictures of my layered, multicolor knits for you. I guess it is expected of me.
I think I'm not as into blogging EVERY SINGLE THING right now because my life is quite busy and eventful these days. Along with my (great) steady job I told you guys about earlier, I was contacted about the crazy AWESOME opportunity I hinted at a few posts ago. And I went in to discuss the specifics today, so I guess this is the right time to share the news with you all: I was asked to do research at my University on a government appointed project for four months!!
Now, if you know me a bit, you probably know that I am in love with anything to do with academics and university and science, so getting this chance seriously had me jump around and hug myself with a huge, silly grin on my face. I'm going to have two jobs for the next four months: 50% social media manager, 50% sociology/communications researcher. It's like I discovered the proverbial pot of gold at the other side of the rainbow! Professionally, I don't think I could conjure up a better situation to be in. Except if people paid me top dollar to eat pizza. Then again, maybe it would ruin the pizza for me. I like sticking it to the man too much.
I never thought I'd be a career type ambitious person, but I guess I totally am when it comes to the fields that make me tick. Whenever I had to make sacrifices to get where I thought I wanted to go before, I always felt so guilty for feeling like those sacrifices weren't worth it. Made me think of myself as lazy or spoiled. I guess I was subconsciously telling myself this wasn't it. I am brimming with energy and enthusiasm these days.
I'm not religious, but I am very grateful for where I am right now, which is exactly where I would want to be and what I worked hard for. It feels right, and rewarding, and like me being in the right place in every single way that counts. I hope you will find something that will give you that feeling too.
