I Got The Job

Four months ago, I started this blog to learn the process of blogging and to gain writing experience.

My intention was to chronicle my own personal “About Face”, from a mostly stay at home mom of 16 years to a full time working mom. I quickly realized that would be too boring and depressing so my blog morphed into the scattered and unfocused Category Cloud it is today.

I will continue to blog about running, my boys, social media and Trader Joe’s but thankfully, I no longer feel pressure to stick to the original intention of this blog.

After 3 months, 100 days, 2 interviews, 1000 word essay, 1 writing test, 1 more interview and 1 background check, I got the job. No, I am not working for President Obama but an equally dynamic and public figure in the local Catholic world in which I live. I am looking forward to being an essential contributor and learning from accomplished professionals.

Thanks to all my friends who made recommendations, supported and  prayed for me; I felt every single prayer and thought.
