My transition: I will soon be graduating from college (University of Michigan), finding a job, creating a new 'home', possibly moving to a new town, and putting my child into school ... for the first time. In this troubled economy (although the most recent quarterly report did show increase!) and with my degree (Sociology and Global Change... 'Hippie Studies' as I so lovingly refer to it) I do not know where to begin my job search. As a very organized person, bordering on anal-retentive control-freak, this is a strange position to find myself in. There aren't books on this (are there?) or self-help tapes that can help me figure out how to market myself and my degree... hell, I don't even know exactly what kind of job I am qualified for! But I do know this...
I now have a blog*.
Feel free to follow me on my journey... and laugh at, disagree with, or criticize the musings of my world that I will be posting to try and distract myself from the craziness of this transition...
I don't know who said this, but I appreciate the sentiment, it leaves a nice taste in my mouth:
"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power."
I hope you have a peaceful day,
