a whole month already?

Alright.  It’s pretty evident that following through on writing more on my blog isn’t exactly my forte.  But I have a good excuse.  The last time I posted was just a little after a month ago and I was one day into my new job.  Well, said job is crazy busy and I have hardly had time to think about or do anything else.  It’s been a huge adjustment for me, as I have always had a pretty normal work schedule, and a fairly light workload since I’ve been in the real world.  I’ve always left work by 5:00 and taken lunches everyday, but this is no longer the case.  That being said, I am in no way complaining.  I am really enjoying it so far, and loving the fact that I have a new challenge everyday and no day is ever alike.  It doesn’t hurt that my coworkers are fun and wonderful as well.  This isn’t to say that I’m not overwhelmed a good portion of the time, but I know I made a good career move that will open up a lot of opportunities and give me great experience in event planning. 

The hardest part of the adjustment is making the time to fit in everything that I love outside of work.  Working out is a huge priority and finding a new schedule of classes I like is difficult.  My sweet dog isn’t getting as many walks as he should be, but I’m hoping to start taking him really early in the morning while I drink my essential cup of coffee.  And my friends…well, my friends are my heart and they understand completely that right now a lot of plans are played by ear until I can get a more consistent schedule down. 

So all in all, while crazy and hectic, the job is great and I’m glad to be there.  And life in general is better than it has ever been.  Cheers to that!
