the big decision...

In my last post, I wrote about a decision I made.  And since so many of you (Gina and Dad=) are curious to know what it was, I will tell you.  

I am going to be a surrogate mother!!!  

not.  but I think my decision is just as exciting and doesn't involve... well, the childbearing process.  


I am officially the new Marketing Coordinator at Carlyle Place!  My supervisor of my internship (who is now my boss) had told me about the opening a few days after I started and asked me to consider the position.  Everything worked out quite well and I felt that it would be a good opportunity to get experience in what some call "the real world".  Most of all, I have a job I look forward to going into each day.  

Every day is different and I l-o-v-e that.  Sometimes I'll have a to do list of 15 things but will visit a new resident and end up staying an hour or so listening to them talk about their move and helping them with questions they have.  I love that this is a part of my job.  The Marketing Coordinator position encompasses many different things: admissions process, clerical work, special events, move-in's, refurbishing apartments, and anything else that might need to be done around the marketing/ sales area of Carlyle.  

When I was in college, I had briefly thought about doing interior design and nursing.  While I quickly realized my brain was not made to be an interior designer, I still like some different aspects of it.  And nursing, well I still have never decided against it, but just not at this time.  So I graduated with a PR degree--- which I love.  The cool thing about my job is I get to see and do a little bit of all these things - interior design, nursing, and PR/Marketing.  I know God gives us certain things that we like and I think we should use those things that He has given us a desire for.  

So that is my life for the past week.  Learning a new job and working lots, with God teaching me alot along the way.  And these aren't always easy lessons.  If you think of me, pray for me.  I greatly appreciate the prayers of my friends during this part of my life.   

That is all for now, I'm going to bed so I can wake up with the sun in the morning... nitey-nite.

That's very exciting. But what does reverting back to childhood have to do with that??????
