What a Year!

Today is my one year anniversary at my job. One year of crazy chaos, endless to do lists, endless crises, upheaval and change. My job is so much different than when I started - I'm in my third office, on my third set of bosses and the job description appears to change every day.

Sometimes I wonder why I stay. Things never seem to "settle down". I'm always being pulled in a million directions and the hours are long.

On the other hand, I can see real progress. The project has taken off and I'm doing things I never thought I could do. I've organized several conferences, designed a website, learned to maintain the site in Dreamweaver, launched a whole new side of the operation, built amazing corporate contacts and got the project through all the previously mentioned crises.

I'm a very deadline and purpose driven person and there's no lack of either in this job! Sometimes that's for the good and sometimes it's for the worse. Lots of drama - both highs and lows.

It has been a great job for bringing together skills that I picked up in various places over the years and forcing me to learn new ones. It's been a thoroughly wild ride and I hope I have the opportunity to celebrate a second anniversary here.

It's funny, when I took this job and moved I was really sure this is what God wanted me to be doing. I wasn't sure why. It's not like I work in a Christian organization or that there's anything particularly Christian about my job (though there is a social justice element). It's interesting that a year later some of that is becoming much clearer to me (at least I think).

As always - life is an adventure!!
