No More Naps

I love a good nap. Sadly, I have had to trade them in though. Today made day two without a nap. What's the occasion for ditching the naps so abruptly? Well...that interview that I had a few weeks ago...I officially accepted the job and my first day was yesterday.

Right now I'm in full on training mode. The office is full of fun people and the girls that are training me are so sweet. I'm learning a lot so nights are usually spent relaxing and rewriting my notes.

I gave a little mini description about the job earlier, but since I've officially accepted it now, I feel comfortable with sharing a little bit more.

I interviewed for and was hired to be an account manager for the Geneologie division of Emory Group. Emory Group does lots of things, but they specialize in selling custom t-shirts. As a Geneologie account manager, I will focus on selling custom t-shirts and other fun items to sororities and fraternities. Sorority girls....and I can say that because I was one...they have to have a shirt for everything....and they like them to be different. Emory Group can take care of the designing, printing, bagging and shipping.

Thankfully, I won't have to do any of the designing. Those poor people would have the worst shirts EVER. I'll just be the one managing the relationships with the girls and guys in charge of t-shirts for their house...yeah, each sorority and fraternity has someone that is just in charge if t-shirts...and finding out what they need and what they want it to look like. For right now, I will only be calling on The University of Alabama, Auburn and Samford.

That's probably not the best explanation...but hopefully that gives you an idea.

I'm so excited about this new opportunity. There are so many positives. One thing that I'm most excited about is the opportunity to do work on something I'm passionate about with PEOPLE that I'm passionate about serving. COLLEGE GIRLS, people....LOVE THEM!!! On top of that, the hours are really flexible so I will be able to still do things for a women's ministry and I will have a steady income. I feel like I'm going to really enjoy this...and I think I'm going to be really good at it too. I sure hope so anyway.

Can I just say that God has exceeded my wildest dreams!

I may be scarce on the blog these next few weeks...I have agreed to be the Recruitment Advisor for my sorority next week. Super excited about that, but as I remember from when I was in the sorority a few years ago, it is going to be LONG hours. Then, I'll be full speed ahead on the new job. As soon as I get the ground work laid and feel more comfortable, I'll be back on a more regular update schedule.

P.S. I rewrite notes too...I did it in college at least. I couldn't stand having scribble and trying to later figure out what in the world it said!!! :)
