Will Someone Pinch Me Please?

30 04 2009

Life is pretty phenomenal right now. I just returned from a trip home. It was a short one, but a lovely one, and since I was home for a wedding I had the opportunity to see old college friends that I haven’t seen in far too long. Plus, it’s finally springtime in New York. The parks are green and the weather fine (it’s about time).

All that aside, the real reason that I’m flying high these days is that—wait for it—I finally have a job, a real, grown-up, regular hours job. And not just any job, a job with Hearst Digital Media that seems almost too good to be true. It’s been about a year in the making, and about three years since I’ve had a full-time job, and I am definitely, with all my heart ready to jump into Hearst and make things happen.

First, the commute is a straight shot from my home on the B train up to Columbus Circle, no frustrating transfers or running through subway stations. Second, the building is lovely and light-filled and LEED-certified (which, nerd that I am, makes me oh-so-happy), oh, and very close to Central Park, which is yet another perk. Third, and most importantly, the job is swell. I’ve only been at it two days, but I already know that the people are nice and that I’m going to thoroughly enjoy what I’m doing. I’ll be working on sweepstakes as well as the gift guides for the holiday season, which promise to give me a lot of Excel work (yes, I am an Excel nerd), a bit of writing and a whole lot else. Plus, it’s sort of like shopping for a living, and who wouldn’t love that.

I had a very hard time leaving my kids in Harlem, but this is a huge and exciting step for me, and one I’m most looking forward to. Stay tuned for updates to come!

Hey Suzanne – congrats on the job! Sounds like you found your perfect fit. I must admit, I’m also an Excel nerd 😛 gotta love spreadsheets! Hope all things work related continue to go well!

There are little reminders of your trip home scattered all around my house — makes me feel nostalgic about when you lived here! I too am thrilled about your job. It does a mom’s heart good when her kids are happy. Congratulations and good, good luck… Love, Mom
