Happy Half-Birthday to Me!

Today I am...*gulp*...24-AND-A-HALF years old. Yikes!

The best present I can give to myself in honor of this occasion is the opportunity to return to the field of art history, and make it my professional home.

Thus, today marks my final day in the job I've had for over a year. While this industry is dynamic and interesting, I ultimately believe that I belong around ART! I hope my new museum job will be challenging, educational, rewarding and FUN!

It's silly (and a serious fallacy) to ever expect that a new job (dress, house, friend, etc.) will make one's life different enough to be perfect, but I have a feeling that I am, at the very least, going to LOVE this next step I'm taking.

Cheers to taking the plunge!
Cxx.
