It’s funny how your life can change in a span of a week. Heck, it can change in a blink of an eye. It’s only been six days into the month and already, life has picked up speed; and frankly, it’s been a whirlwind.
I started a new job today on the 1st of the month. Symbolic? New month, new job, new beginnings? (I guess that will reveal itself in due time ;] ) In the days leading up to the job, I almost didn’t want to believe it. I had a gnawing fear that they would call me and tell me they made a terrible mistake or that they changed my mind. It just blew my mind that they chose me. The anticipation and unwillingness to accept reality stayed with me until the moment I literally sat down at my new desk. The company is this cool start up in the Mission that we shall call MS. It has a great culture and spoils its employees. When I told BNT about this place, he said that it’s a “lifer”. I think I’ll like it here 🙂 A year ago, I had no idea how I’d penetrate into the 7×7 radius known as SF but somehow it all worked out. As cliche as it sounds, I think a Marilyn Monroe quote is perfect for this moment: “sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together”.
After the end of a short work week, I enjoyed another slew life-changing celebrations: a couple of housewarmings and a proposal!!! This weekend really opened my eyes to how much my friends and I have grown and all the adventures that lie ahead. Maybe it’s summer or maybe it’s because of the new job but I am bursting with bubbly excitement of new beginnings and the unknown.
Until next time friends!
