What's the happs??

So here is an update on the life of Nick.

The job is going well. I realized today that I really loved my job at the University. It really was a great fit for me. It allowed me to be myself with no regrets. I could talk as much as I wanted, and as little as I wanted. It allowed me to see the country and above all, drive to different parts that I probably never would have gotten the chance to had I been in another job. Most of all, it allowed me to have an impact on someone's life, which at the end of the day is all I want to do with my life.

*Warning soapbox about to be stepped on*

So many of us live day-to-day just trying to get by. I realized this early in my life, especially after 2 different jobs. I met so many people along the way that had been in the same job 3 or 5 years. Waiting for something to happen. When I woke up that day and quit my job, I decided that I would no longer wait for things to happen to me, that instead that I would have to make them happen.
So here I sit again, with a new job. I'm only a month into, and yet somehow it feels like I'm waiting for something to happen. I leave work filling like I could have done more, like I should have done more. I should've had a direct impact. Perhaps, it will happen. But, I've also decided that I can no longer wait. Because once you have touched the "rainbow" the last thing you want to do is stare at it out of a window.

*Soapbox off*

Don't get me wrong, I'm not out for a new job and I don't hate my current one. If anything I'm writing this as a testament to where I am and where I want to be. I know that me leaving my job in DC was not without thought. I know in my heart it was done for a bigger reason, one that I probably won't ever know the answer to. So, I'll wait to tell you what the happs??

it was hard to leave my job in atlanta for this one, and i certainly have had doubts about this one from time to time. but i made a step in the right direction.

i'm sure you've done the same, be it in career or in life (or both).

Well...I was where I was for 5 years. TODAY is the first day of
my new job. So we'll see if I have made something happen in my life successfully.
