So, the first thing I did when I got back to my desk after turning in my notice was hit publish on yesterday's post. I was so excited that it was official! But, giving my two weeks was pretty hard, which I had been warned it would be. That's why I asked you guys the other week what the hardest thing you've done in your career has been (IF you have a career, that is).

Once I told her, my supervisor's reaction was supportive and positive but still sad. We went in to talk to our HR lady together, and she also acknowledged what a good move this was for me.

So what exactly will I be doing? My new job is on the events team. After some training, I will eventually plan and execute all kinds of events: anything from book signings, bar mitzvahs and banquets to wedding receptions, induction ceremonies and after parties. Luckily there are about six of us that do this same job, plus our supervisors, because there are so many events taking place there. They really emphasized the team part of the job because you have to coordinate with other departments and vendors. So couple the incredible company and setting with the detail/logistics focused aspect of the job, and you can see why I'm pretty confident that I am going to love it.

Patience is suuuuuch a virtue, you guys. I haven't really written about job searching but I've been looking since January. And let me tell you, it's been hard. I'd get my hopes up and then get disappointed. I was super scared that was going to be the case again with this job. But as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait and all my frustrations from the spring are completely worth it now, since I'm so glad none of those situations worked out.

So that's all I've got for now! Back to tap class recaps and the like. Thanks for all the encouragement and prayers and supportive calls and voicemails and texts and e-mails. Y'all have been awesome. I have the best friends!
