Happy Friday, Magical Creatures!
Good news: I am finally a college graduate.
You probably didn’t know because I didn’t have any sappy posts or posed cap-and-gown photos (I decided to skip my graduation and save the $110), but I did it.
Much has happened in the past month, and my life seems to be picking up its pace exponentially. First things first, I graduated from Ball State with a BS in Public Relations, already having a full-time job lined up for after school. I had set this goal for myself during the spring semester knowing fully that many people don’t find a job until a year or two after graduation. I feel fortunate to have accomplished this goal and am so thankful to all of the people who aided in my search.
I finished up my internship with Liz Alig on a Friday (I’m still doing blogger relations), moved to downtown Indianapolis that weekend, and started my new job on that Monday. I was thoroughly exhausted for a couple of weeks, but I survived, and came out the other end determined and thrilled to be doing what I’m doing.
I live in an industrial studio apartment with 15 foot ceilings, concrete floors, and stainless steel countertops (peek Justin and Akio on bottom right).
And the biggest bathtub I’ve ever soaked in.
Apartment tour coming soon, but first I have to unpack all the way (she says three weeks later while sitting in bed and watching A Handmaid’s Tale).
Oh, and there’s a rooftop infinity pool.
I’m working at High Alpha, a venture capital studio that dreams up and funds tech companies. My job is fast paced and my co-workers are fantastic.
The office is on the top floor of a building right on Monument Circle, daily inspirational city views included.
In summary, I am currently living in a big girl apartment, working a big girl job, all in a big girl city.
Now I’m just waiting for it to feel like home.
