Hello! First of all, my apologies for just taking off. I do that sometimes, particularly when faced with major life changes like finishing university. Perhaps my last post about travelling foreshadowed that it was about to happen again, but it was a fairly spur of the moment decision. Anyway, I am back now. In case anyone is interested, I thought I’d include a brief update on my life before I resume my usual blogging habits.
First, I finished up my last coursework and graduated from Syracuse! I now have a music degree with focus on voice and piano, a minor in marketing, and a minor in IT. Managed to scrape by Magna cum Laude as well!
Right after graduating I moved out of my place, donated about half of my belongings to charity, and send the rest back to New Jersey with my family. Two days later, I got on a plane to England. I stayed with some family before taking off for Prague, Croatia, Switzerland, and making another stop in England, and then I made it back stateside.
Twelve hours after landing in Newark, I began my full time position at Marketsmith. I was there last summer and they offered me a full-time position- having a job waiting for me was a major factor in my decision to finish school a year early. I manage social media for the company as well as the charity we sponsor, help out with creative and web design, and write many a blog post.
It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, to say the least. I will write more about my travels once things have settled down-this is the first time I’ve been home for longer than two weeks since last summer, so it’s a bit of an adjustment! I still haven’t quite unpacked…might just give the rest of my things away and call it a day. We have too many objects anyway.
Other than that, I’m just trying to keep up my music (anyone need a cocktail pianist or jazz singer?), getting started on some reading for yoga teacher training, enjoying time with my family, and trying to spend some time in the sunshine. Decompressing after a long few years, deciding where I want my life to go.
