one year

I'm Feeling: reflective
Background Noise: Only the Good Die Young by Billy Joel

One year ago today, I began working as the Undergraduate Academic Adviser for the Department of Political Science at Michigan State University. I was basically terrified - new jobs always freak me out - mostly because I want to do well and I don't want to look stupid (and it's pretty much inevitable that you will screw up something and look stupid at some point at a new job). I'm certain that I've screwed up and looked stupid, but I also think that overall - I've done well. Working full-time (while less fun than hanging out in college and sleeping in and all that) has it's own really cool rewards and perks. I feel competent knowing that I can provide for myself and my husband (who doesn't need me to provide for him at all, but I could if I needed to).

It always amazes me how much changes, and how much stays the same in one year. I know some people who hate change... other people that would much rather have things be different every day. I'm not sure where I fall really - change can sap my energy sometimes, but it's exhilirating and I do really like challenges. Who knows what the next year will bring?

Thought for the day: I'm bummed no one posted a response to yesterday's thought.

Congratulations on your one-year anniversary!!! You're an old pro now! Good job, I'm sure they love you over there and that you've done much better than "well." I would agree, one year has brought some pretty big changes. I'm not sure where I fall on the spectrum of change. I don't mind changes but I like developing existing relationships. Yesterday's question... I figure God can take my current sufferings or situation to glorify him. Therefore, whereever I am, I can seek the mind set that God is training me, getting me ready for my next opportunity to be used by Him. That doesn't always make things easier but hopefully God smiles at our attitude... my response is no where close to Jamie's profound answer but only Jamie can be so eloquent.

All right, relax, Tucker!

Katie, I don't think I really understood totally your question. Maybe you can flesh it out a little more?

I'm glad that you enjoy your job. Congratulations on one year! My fear of a new job is wondering if I'll like it or hate it and want to go back to the old job and regret the decission of leaving in the first place.
