Leaving my iridescent Eugene life seemed like a drastic decision as I pulled on the notorious i5 stretch. I looked back in my rearview mirror as if all the glorious moments I would be missing would somehow appear looking back at me. Instead, all I could see was myself. At the risk of sounding too “cheesy,” I realized that very reflection was my future presenting the adventure I was soon to embark on, one of which would hold more opportunities than I could hope for.
Instinctively, I believe we make choices even if we are unsure of the outcome, (consequently making life so exciting). Although I couldn’t believe my time in college had flown by so quickly I was excited to start something new. I think it is important to take risks that give you a competitive edge especially in today’s face-pace world. I believe that we sometimes get too comfortable in our daily lives whether that be a set routine in work and or school. Pushing yourself to experience new things is important because it helps break down any barriers you unknowingly set for yourself and allows you to become a better you.
Since the initial interview the months flew by and before I knew it I was handed my own key badge, a stack of business cards and got right into the swing of things. Just about everyday I am given a new press release or assignment to work on, which was a bit overwhelming at first. One way that I was able to keep myself organized was by creating lists. I know that time management is very crucial in meeting deadlines and producing quality work and found that by making a checklist and using sticky notes as reminders helped me be ready for each day.
