Well, guys, it’s official. I’m an adult now. By some sort of miracle I managed to land the job that I actually wanted with a B2B marketing firm that specializes in web marketing for manufacturing and construction equipment businesses. I’ve spent the last week learning how to draft online marketing materials and pestering my manager with questions. That man has the patience of a saint.
I’ve been working there about a week now and I’ve been navigating the treacherous waters of 401K planning and company insurance. I still can’t quite believe I’ve landed a job that gives me both. Part of me still thinks I’m a student. But I’m not. I have to keep telling myself that I’m not because University of Iowa classes started the day I started working. For the first time in my life, I’m not in school. And I never have to go back to school if I don’t want to.
That’s quite a feeling. It hasn’t really sunk in until now. I’m a working girl now with a grown up job. Now all that needs to happen is for the fabulous Kent to get a job so we can apartment hunt. The second adulthood milestone!
Sorry this post is so short, being an adult is tiring!
