New Beginnings

It feels so strange not to be writing back to school posts this year.  It's crazy to think this is my first September in over sixteen years that I won't be packing up my textbooks and walking into school for my first day.  It's been a wild past few months, between graduating, moving back home, and starting my first full time job, but that's all just part of growing up, I suppose.

Speaking of my full time job, I haven't actually addressed the topic on the blog yet.  I started working at the end of June, went on my beach vacation for a week, and then began working with a normal schedule.  It's been a whirlwind between unpacking from college and redoing my bedroom, starting work, leaving work for vacation, and coming back to work and jumping into some pretty big projects.

As for where I'm actually working and what I'm actually doing...I am working at the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra as the Advancement Coordinator.  The position is a one year contract, and then I can either see if there's a position to move up within the organization, or find something new.  The job is great because it's a mix between a little bit of development and fundraising and a little bit of marketing and social media.  It's definitely helped me to determine what I'd like to do in a future job (and hint, it's not social media!).

What have y'all been up to lately?
