When I grow up...

...I have no idea. I always had this idea in my head that I would graduate from college and then magically have this job that I loved. Wrong. What really happened was that I graduated in a major that I loved, but that had a reality that didn't quite follow with the rest of my dreams. I always wanted to be on the Today show, but when I finished school, I realized I wanted to be close to my family more. Ok, so I wanted to be where Brady was and I wanted to get married. Somehow moving across the country and working every weekend and holiday didn't fit into that plan, so I went on to plan b...public relations. What I didn't realize is how vague this could be and finding the right fit in the right company would take time, and apparently I didn't have as much time as I thought!

I always imagined that I would be settled in a career that I loved before I had kids. I had changed jobs and started at a university so that I could get my graduate degree for free (so lucky), and then I thought I would have plenty of time to move on from there...not!

So, here I am, 5 1/2 months pregnant and getting ready to start a new job, sounds crazy I know! I really didn't mean to plan it out so that I would be finishing grad school, starting a new job, and having a baby within 3 months, but life doesn't always go according to plan, ha! Actually, I have never felt more relieved then two weeks ago when I gave my boss my two weeks notice; I finally felt like I was on the right path to a job that I love. Soon, I will start with the Koch Associate's Program and be the Director of Resource Development for Boys and Girls Club. This is such an amazing opportunity and I hope that I can do it justice. It is kind of funny; before, I wanted to find a career that I loved for me, but now I want one that I love so that I can be a good mom. I know that sounds silly, but I have this picture in my head of being incredibly happy when the baby comes. I honestly don't think I could have completed that picture if I didn't have a job that I love, but hopefully, this will be the perfect fit!
