Spring is in the air...

I know I'm a day late to the party, but happy spring, everyone! Without a doubt, and completely disregarding the absolute dust storm levels of pollen we have floating through the air right now, spring in Georgia is by far my favorite time of the year. The weather is warm, but the sweltering heat of summer hasn't hit us yet. The flowering trees are all blooming. The bugs aren't terrible. You can be outside for longer than five minutes without calling BS on this whole nature thing, and heading for the nearest indoor location available to you.

I love spring.

And I love the good mood that spring brings with it....

And in other happy news...did I mention that I interviewed for a promotion a few weeks ago?

(I honestly don't remember if I did or not, and let's be honest, I am much, much, MUCH too lazy to go check my own archives to see whether I did or not...)

Well, if I didn't mention it, I'm mentioning it now...I interviewed for a promotion a few weeks ago. And I met with my boss's boss today, as sort of a second interview, and...I found out this afternoon that I got the job!

It will be more responsibility, and I'll be managing people that were my peers just over a year ago, which will be a challenge in and of itself, I think, but I'm always up for a challenge, so I couldn't be more excited!

Also, terrified. But mostly excited. Ok, maybe about 70/30 excited to terrified. Or 60/40? Definitely more excited, though.

But yeah, still a little terrified. Maybe just do me a favor and keep your fingers crossed for positive reactions from the rest of the team when the announcement goes out next week? Thanks...


  1. Congratulations!!!! So exciting! Managing others who were once your peers does sound challenging, but I fully believe you can handle it! :)

    I hope the new job comes with a nice promotion and maybe a few perks? ;)

    (This morning the radio was discussing things people wished companies could add to work contracts to "woo" them over. One girl said a Gucci bag every year. Another said paid haircuts and highlights. Personally, I'm all for work paying for my groceries! ;))

  2. CONGRATSSSS!!! i think the hardest part would be managing peers, but you'll do just fine!! keep us posted on the transition!


  3. woo hoo!! Congrats on the promotion. Managing your peers is always difficulty at first, but they will adjust. I have my fingers crossed that you will be wonderful!


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
