THE last day

Today is a momentous day. It is my last day working for PTC. I've been with them for a couple of years now, thinking that it would be temporary until I moved back to VA. Alas, I'm now an official resident of UT so I finally conceded that I should be an adult, i.e. responsible, paying off debt, getting insurance.
And so long story short, after a six month job search I am going to be working in the Graduate Medical Education office. A mouthful, I know.
I'm excited and slightly sad. I love the feeling of progress and moving forward. Also eliminating debt in half the time = VERY exciting. I don't think it will set in until Monday or Tuesday that I'm really never working here in this capacity again. We'll see.
In celebration when I found out about the job offer (!!!) on Monday Em, P, and I all went out to dinner in celebration of my career transition into adulthood, and MAN was it delicious! Now I just have to work on conserving, saving, and spending wisely. All things I have issues with. We're just not friends.
On the up side, I now have a very good reason to go shoe shopping! And business wear...
I can see already that this may go poorly but at least it will be fun!

The First of Many

I'm still not really sure what exactly I'm going to be writing about here. Mostly there will be bits of information about my life, random thoughts on the world, and Em (occasionally). Hopefully I'll be more consistent than in the past, but maybe not.
On today's ride to work, there was a moment where I just didn't want to get off the bus. I could just keep going in circles. And that sounded so appealing. Then I got off of the bus and continued on to work. I'm a creature of habit due to years of being told that's what you're supposed to do. I suppose life has to have repetition... I mean... breathing, heartbeats, etc: repetition! But a change in pace is nice too. Hopefully I can document a bit of both here, without becoming endlessly self-centered and boring.
On the other hand, isn't blogging all about being self-centered?
You be the judge on how it turns out.
PS I'm glad you're coming along on BriannEm's Grand Adventures (occasionally).
