2010 has been the year of change: changing REs, changing treatment plans, buying a house, going back to school, and choosing (temporarily) to live childfree.
This week, I decided to add one more change to the mix.
Tuesday, October 5, will be my last day working in the publishing industry. I've worked in some form of publishing for the last four years, and I am leaving it behind to start fresh in academics. I'll be working as a program coordinator in the faculty training/development department at a local university. This position comes with less money, but also less of a commute and more of an opportunity for growth - especially as I continue to work on my master's degree.
I have no idea what to expect, but I'm excited. This is a chance for me to start on a new path. I needed to be honest with myself: I love editing, but I don't want to work in publishing anymore. The first step toward my future career goals was going back to school. I just needed to add a change in work environment to the mix. This position felt right from the beginning, and I knew that this is why I turned down the job offer several weeks ago.
Everything happens for a reason. Right? Now if only I could learn to apply that saying to my uterus.
