An update on grown-up life

I’ve had very little time to write lately because I’ve been busy transitioning to the real world. Yes, I am finally moved out of my parents’ basement and busy establishing myself as a professional.

In this economy, I am blessed to now have a job in the development office at Georgia Gwinnett College, where I started my new position as Assistant Director of Annual Giving on Feb. 2. As the first public, 4-year liberal arts college opened in the 21st century, GGC has enormous growth potential and I’m anxious to see what happens in the coming months. One of the most exciting recent developments is the news that Gen. David Petraeus will be speaking at the May 2009 commencement ceremony.

On a separate note, I’ve just moved to a new apartment in Suwanee, GA, about 15 minutes away from my job in Lawrenceville. Although moving in (and decorating) has been a very slow process, I’ve really enjoyed living by myself and am sure Ken is relieved that I won’t be moving quite as frequently now that I’m done with college.

I’m still adjusting to both living in a new city and working, so if any of you reading have any tips to share on fun things to do in Gwinnett or fundraising, I would greatly appreciate it. I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year so far!
