I'm so excited!

November 13, 2013

I'm so excited! Oh my gosh! I've landed a job at a high-end custom furniture manufacturer and showroom and I couldn't possibly be more pleased.

So that you can understand how big of a step this is for me I want to give you a little personal background about myself ...

I began my career by listening to the advice of teachers, friends, and family members rather than following my heart. I've been gifted with a natural talent for mathematics, chemistry, and physics, subjects I easily excelled at (not bragging, just being honest). I had a wonderful VP at my high school who cared about his students' futures and took interest in our progress. I remember having a discussion with him where he urged me to use these talents and not waste them. Having taken his advice to heart I persued a Bachelor of Science at the Dalhousie University. And while I did enjoy learning, I was never passionate about a career in the sciences or academia. So I left the program after two years.

Afterwards I spent some time working in various organizations while trying to formulate a plan for my future. I could never quite pull the trigger on any one of them because it never felt quite right. Then, it was announced that the organization I was working for was going under. So I panicked and went back to college to gain a degree in Finance. I felt a little more sure of this choice because I do devour personal finance books on my own time. But something still wasn't quite "right".

While still working towards the finish line of graduation I spent considerable time reading anything and everything devoted to helping its reader find and follow their passion. This blog has been a tremendous help along my path to passion. That's what caused me to begin blogging, to explore what lights me on fire.

And here's a little pretty for your eyes... My all time favourite room! Thanks for popping by and listening to my verbal "happy dance".
