friday five + a life update

.5   the past three weeks have been a whirlwind of activity: received an email from an old friend asking if i knew of anyone looking for a great opportunity to work with his company – i ended up applying, getting the job, putting in my resignation + start on monday. [!!!]

.4   after 8 ½ years with my current company, it was time for a change, time to shake things up. with today being my last day, i’m [really] not looking forward to saying goodbye to this group who have become more like family than coworkers. but no time for tears, i’ve got a farewell party to attend!

.3   i’ll be completely switching career paths, going from an office job to working from home + being out in the field. i’ll have a lot more flexibility with my hours, room to grow within the company, and potential to bring in more loot. and while there’s much to do with training + credentialing, once all that’s done i feel the sky’s the limit – which is really exciting.

.2   life otherwise has been great! so far 2015 has brought some big changes that i’m fully embracing. a new haircut, finally got my volvo, a new job. rhyan’s doing well in school. i was able to visit my dad + bobbi in florida. i saw a good quote a few weeks ago that resonated with me: ‘the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.’

.1   i have a nice weekend planned – which includes studying up on product for the new job + beers with a friend tonite, a birthday brunch with girlfriends tomorrow, followed by drinks at the goat with leah + the crew, and wrapping up the weekend with a lowkey sunday. here’s to new adventures!
