Today, I'm letting the cat out of the bag, as evidenced by this amazing photo of a leopard {when you have big news that isn't a pregnancy announcement {oh yeah, this isn't a pregnancy announcement}, you use a photo of a big cat}. You know, I've never really understood that phrase, but people seem to get it. I mean, what was the cat doing in the bag anyway? Is everyone smuggling cats? How often are we using phrases that we don't completely understand?

Anyway, I have some big news I want to share...



I GOT A NEW JOB!



I received the offer on Monday, but, of course, had to tell my current job and let it sink in for a few days before screaming it from the rooftops - or on this blog and via phone calls and texts to friends and family.

For the last six and a half years, I have worked for my alma mater in marketing and communications. It was a job that came along exactly when I needed it, and it has allowed me to gain some valuable experience. To grow and mature. And now, it's time to move on.

I am now going to be working for a major, nationally recognized healthcare system as a communications manager. I couldn't be more excited to take on this new challenge and join, what I'm certain will be, a great team and company for which to work. My first day is Monday, Feb. 16 and it couldn't come fast enough!

Also, remember how professors and other adults pounded into your brain the importance of networking and not burning bridges? It was never made more clear to me than how I found out about this job. So heed, friends, relationships and connections with your colleagues and fellow professionals matter. A lot. Like a lot, a lot.

So, yay me! I cannot even put into words in this post how ecstatic I am about this opportunity. I am most certainly ready for this new chapter in my career and life. Until then, I'll just be over here counting down the days...24!
