Life is good. The past few weeks have been some of the best in recent memory. My time in New York was fantastic and life here has been a pleasant surprise. I have had a crazy busy few weeks with classes starting up again and a new school year gearing up, but for the first time in a long time don't feel lost. I feel confident and comfortable. I attribute it to having started my second year at Auburn. The first year of anything is SUCH a learning process and really - haven't gotten to be a "sophomore" since college. Yes my grad school program was two years, but my second year I was working in a new area of campus with a new staff and supervisor so I still faced quite a learning curve. Now I know my job and what to expect, plus people know me and what I am capable of. I just feel so confident and sure which is how I operate best. I love having relationships with students who make sure to come visit me or we get to catch up if we run into eachother on campus. I have been waiting to be a seasoned sophomore in the workplace for quite sometime. I am thrilled and excited about the year ahead.

Speaking of being seasoned today is exactly 8 years since I moved into college freshman year. WHAT?!?!?! I know crazy. Sometimes it feels like yesterday I can picture it all so clearly. At the same time it feels like a lifetime ago. Quinnipiac I love you!

Well let me get back to reading one of my Sookie Stackhouse books since I'm writing this post on my blackberry poolside!
