Things have recently been very busy for me.  I became really stressed out at the end of November after I realized I was graduating college with a lot of uncertainty.  What would I do?  Where would I go?  The other thing, I was about to lose my job.

I had worked all through college at a wonderful creative and technical services place called the Hive, which was on campus.  The trick was though I was a student worker and after graduating, I would no longer be a student.  Therefore, I could no longer be working as a student.

Finally, in a moment of panic I freaked out and talked to my boss and it turned out that they did not really want to get rid of me either.  Instead, they offered me a temporary position so that I could pull myself together and figure out my next step.  This was immensely helpful and I took on a position with new leadership demands.

While feeling more secure for at least another semester and summer (I still think in academic terms), I looked into different options as to what I will do next.  I found a program that would allow me to move to Spain and work there as a teacher of English.  I applied and was accepted and I will be moving to Madrid in the fall.

I plan on keeping this blog although I might be changing the focus of it some as my life progresses and goes off in different ways.
