It’s been a whirlwind semester.
Actually, it’s been a pretty crazy month, mostly.
No, I’ll be honest… this past week has been ridiculous.
It’s finals week, which is all fine and dandy. On top of all the projects and huge papers (hey, 15-page honors psych paper… Who signed me up for that?), I was given my location options for my job. Oh, wait. I never actually told you about the job offer I accepted? Huh. Here’s a hint.
You’re reading words written by a future sales rep for the Hershey Company. As I’ve been telling people who know of my addiction, my lifetime dedication to chocolate is finally paying off! Literally.
So back to location options.
I had been telling all of my (many, many) Hershey interviewers that I really wanted to stay in Pittsburgh for these first couple of years after college. I kept my fingers crossed, but I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Imagine a map of the United States that was used as a dartboard on a Saturday night at a dive bar in a college town, and you pretty much have what my options looked like. ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE. I had some thinking and narrowing down to do. Welcome to the past week of my life.
This brings me to the next announcement because I figured it out! Come June, I’ll be moving to…
Can’t tell? Hold on. I’ll zoom out.
Yes, that’s Texas. I am not only a future employed person but also a future San Antonian. My mom ventured around Texas in her 20s, so I guess it’s my turn, huh?!
Even so, I have close to no idea what I’m getting into, so if anyone knows people in the area or has suggestions of where to live, what to do, how to not look like a totally clueless out-of-towner, etc., I would much appreciate it.
Also, come visit me!
