…wait, did I get that right?
Anyway. Two things.
Number One: In case you missed it, today is your last day to pick up the March 19th edition of the Houston Press on newsstands, which contains my review of The Grove in the dining section. If you’re reading this from France or the future and can’t get a physical copy, here’s a link to the review: Downtown Attraction at The Grove. Being in print is awesomely fun, as is working with the good folks at the Houston Press. Which leads us to the second thing…
Number Two: For those of you who have been following me for a while (whether here at she eats. or at my previous blog), you’ll know that I was never happy in my day job. To put it mildly. So it is with great excitement and an affirming sense of self-actualization that I’m happy to announce that I’ve resigned from my day job and have taken a full-time position with the Houston Press as their Web Editor. I’ll still be blogging about food here and at Eating Our Words, but I’ll be taking on a wholly new docket of responsibilities as well.
To say that I’m merely excited by this would be a massive understatement. How can you just be simply excited about turning over a completely new page in your life…jumping off a cliff into the great unknown…realizing the goals and dreams you always had for yourself…watching the hustle and sweat finally pay off…moving in an entirely new direction as before?
I’m not excited. I’m ravenous. I’m fiercely hungry to do this work and to succeed at it. I’m feeling more alive than I have in years. I feel like I’m standing on the stage at my high school graduation all over again, full of hope and joy and elation and passion.
Would that everyone have a chance or opportunity to fulfill their dreams, we would all shine so much brighter.
Thanks to everyone who’s supported me along the way and offered words of praise and encouragement. I couldn’t ask for better readers, friends and family. Much love to you all.
