Happy New Year - 2009

Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2009. We rang in the new year with great people and I truly feel like 2009 is going to turn over a new leaf in our life. I looked back and I didn't make any (or at least post any) goals for 2008, but I wanted to post some goals and things I'd like to do this year. In addition to those, one thing I want to do is to start blogging more. I have been missing it and while I'm getting better at posting pictures in my flickr I haven't quite got around to writing an actual post.

For my career, I absolutely love what I'm doing when it comes to the students but I hate some aspects of my job. So I've decided to make a career change. At least start that journey. I want to focus on students and in particular student advising. I realized over this break and really even before break that I've been so driven on controlling so much in my office and it's probably made me more stressed than anything. I'm going to be very picky with this job hunting journey. I've applied to two jobs to date. They are very specific to student advising. I'm hoping now that the holidays are over I get a call for at least one of them for an interview.
