Returning, and Snapshots from Wine Country [Napa Valley]
*taps mic, clears throat*
Ahem. Hello! Hello. I’m sorry I’ve been away.
So here’s the thing. I started a new job a couple of months ago at this huge, multi-national law firm. “It’s the logical next step,” I thought. “This is going to be great for my career. I will have this glowing name on my résumé and I’ll work my way up to Director in no time!”
In fact, no. It turns out that I am not cut out for a position in which I don’t get to stretch my creativity, in which I do not have any project which are under my control. I am not built to do the same thing over and over every day for twenty years. I do not like being a cog.
So, after a period of being very depressed, I went and found a new job. Or, more accurately, it found me. A different (smaller, younger, faster… stronger?) law firm, a virtual office, and a couple months into the gig, and here I am: fulfilled and happy, once again. And planning travel.
Though of course, I’ve been doing a bit of traveling here and there. I go up to San Francisco to visit old Paris friends every month or two. Lucky for me, sometimes that means weekend jaunts into wine country.
Yes. More of this, please.
