Tomorrow I start at Etsy. It’s my first “first day of work” in over six years. I thought I’d be more nervous, but mainly I just feel excited. I think that’s a testament to how confident I feel that both the role and the company are the perfect fit for me. It’s also probably a result of all the change and uncertainty I’ve learned to make peace with over the past year and a half of traveling. I’ve learned to embrace change and new experiences, and so instead of feeling apprehensive or nervous, I feel thrilled. It’s an amazing feeling, and I’m so excited for day one!
As I transition back to working full time, I’ll be figuring out how to balance reading and blogging into a smaller amount of free time. I might post a little less often some weeks, but I’ll still be here. I also want to get a little more creative here as well – I have some ideas for some new features this fall that I can’t wait to get working on.
And last but not least, I’ve been on a galley reading kick lately, and I can’t wait to chat with you lovely people about all the incredible books out this fall. (Most especially the completely fantastic Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Clegg.)
Cheers to new beginnings, friends! :)
