It seems like people either embrace change or resist it every chance they get. To fall somewhere in the middle is something I've always strived for, and right now, I just might have the opportunity to do so. Have a question? I'd love to hear it, so feel free to email me (mellow1422 [at] aol) or ask me on Facebook or Twitter, friends! Today's question is from Jenny, who asks...
What are you going to be doing with your days now that you aren't a newspaper advisor?
In case you haven't picked up on my subtle clues yet, I don't really like change. OK, I actually hate it. A lot. In fact, sometimes when I see change rolling my way, I swerve my wheelchair in the other direction as if I'm trying to escape the big ball -- Indiana Jones style.
But I'm slowly realizing -- or at least trying to -- that one of the keys to growing up and embracing adulthood is also learning how to embrace change, however big or small or somewhere in the middle. This fall, I'll be faced with the change of no longer being a college newspaper adviser. It's a hat I've worn for nearly five years, watching young journalists grow and blossom right before my very eyes.
I suppose all good things must come to an end, though. But that doesn't mean I'm sad or lost or devastated. I'm honestly excited to look toward the future. So what's on the career horizon for me? I'll be blogging full-time, and I couldn't be happier -- I really do feel like I've got the best job in the world! I'm also planning on hopefully flexing my freelance muscle again. Between working and getting out of the house a few days each week, my time will no doubt fill up pretty fast!
