So on top of the hugely cool honor of being published on Freshly Pressed this week… (thank you to every one who read my piece and most importantly, BELIEVES in me!)
It’s my 25th birthday! Which still isn’t my announcement, though a great day by default because birthdays (at least for me) are a time you can appreciate where you’ve been while also enjoying where you are while also looking forward to what’s ahead. Also gifts and cake because duh.
No, my announcement is something much cooler than turning 25.
So are you ready??
…It’s that this morning I was offered a job.
It’s that this morning I was offered a job.
IT’S THAT TODAY I ACCEPTED A JOB!!!!!!!!
I don’t know how much my last piece went into getting this position but I like to think it made some difference. What I will say is that I wrote it when I was really, really frustrated and down about job searching and how difficult it is to convey to an employer that you could be worth their time, despite how little experience you have to show on a single piece of paper. But I’m so happy to say that finally someone has!
I feel like an unemployed princess in a linkedin fairytale. And now I finally am riding off into the salaried sunset. At least for today.
Can I wish myself a happy birthday? Is that acceptable? Is this not the best birthday present ever? Pinch me?
