Why I'm still here

Although I took a brief hiatus from writing, spent a good 2 months job searching and contemplated the idea of moving I decided to stay after all.

Staying with the blog, staying at my job and giving DC (Arlington really) the time it needs to make me feel at home. Why the change of heart? Well I suppose I never really had a change of heart in the first place, just a wave of doubt about the direction of my career and quality of life.

After all the recent changes at work, staff leaving, new projects, promotion I feel like I just can't leave. I interviewed at a couple of places but I don't think my heart was in it. I still believe in the mission of my organization, I love most of the people (most but not all) and I do get to meet all kinds of fabulously well-connected and famous people at our upcoming events. Not to mention I can walk to my office in less than 10 minutes.

I have so many great things to look forward to, leadership academy for my sorority in September, loads of alumni association events, L.A. in October, Vegas in November...
If only I could get my workaholic FSU to take a day off everything would be as close to perfect as possible.
