A lot of changes for me are either happening now or on the horizon. In one short week, I moved from an apartment I had spent the last two years in, got a new job that starts next week, and found out that my parents sold their house where they had been since I started high school.

Having moved a few times in my life, which has also led to switching schools multiple times, change is something I've become quite accustomed to. This all feels different though. By taking this job I am not only extending my graduation date, but, more importantly, taking a leap into the real world of real work with real hours and real responsibilities. I'm certainly not through being a kid, but I'm excited, ready and grateful to move on. Here's to those of you also going through some transformations. May all your changes only be for the better.
