Not exactly what you're thinking.
Even though I used to be a "basketball cheerleader" in high school, professional basketball just isn't my jam.
March is the month that Florida turns into summer once again and the beach becomes a regular weekend spot. March is also the month I start finding out about graduate school. Acceptances, rejections, wait lists...you name it, I'll probably find out about it within the next couple of weeks. March also marks one year since I put in my two weeks at the Tampa Bay Business Journal in pursuit of this now not-so-new journey.
"The time will pass anyway; you can either spend it creating the life you want, or spend it living the life you don't want. The choice is yours."
I saw this quote around this time last year and even now, it still rings true. I knew leaving my job and going back to school would flip my world upside down. Back to working nights, back to studying for exams, back to being a broke college student. But the truth is, I wasn't happy with where I was or with what I was doing, and so I decided to make that change.
Sometimes I wonder where I would have been if I didn't take that first leap. Would I still be miserable? Would I have gotten better at sales? Would I have just found another job? Would I have enough money in my savings to actually buy a house this year? Who knows?
Maybe it's something about the start of spring, but I'm feeling positive. Cheers to March madness and hopefully hearing some good news. I'm ready for it!
