this is my two weeks notice.

Well, y’all, the time has finally come.

In the middle of last week, I got my first job offer. Then, a mere hours later, I got my second. (Sorry for the delay in posting; wanted to make sure my offer letter was signed, sealed, delivered before jinxing it publicly.)

Just like K, in the end, I had two choices:

1. A communications job that got me back into writing and editing, along with the responsibility of driving content online and managing social media.
2. A marketing/communications job that is more out of my comfort zone. It offers a deeper dive into the social media / marketing world, which my last job let me dip my toes into. This job is at a fast-growing restaurant group, which is huge globally, but expanding quickly in the U.S.

It may come as no surprise considering how this blog was started, that I chose the latter. It’s going to be an adventure and I’m so, so excited about it. (A huge thank you to everyone who took my phone calls while I was making my decision.)

I’ll save the reflective post all about what  Funemployment has meant to me for right before I start the new job. In the meantime, I’m going to send this time of my life out in style. Yesterday was my last day of temping, and I have two weeks before going back to an office full-time. Also, it’s spring in DC, and therefore gorgeous outside.

So, I’m currently making an epic to-do list (which, yes, might include watching ALL of Homeland), and will of course blog all my adventures. On the docket today: Exploring Old Town Alexandria with my roommate, a DC teacher who has today off because it’s Emancipation Day.

This is also a public plea for everyone who knows me personally: We have two weeks to get coffee / lunch / drinks during the day / before I’m a real human with a less flexible schedule.

Let’s do this.

Upward,

S
