Well, guys, as of yesterday, I am no longer employed at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Instead, on Wednesday, I’ll be the newest employee of Belmont University!
I didn’t really want to make a big deal of it, partly because I always make a big deal of my life changes, and partly because it’s not that big of a deal. I had some really great experiences at the CMHOF, but ultimately, the journey of the past three years has taught me that higher ed is where I belong. My dad has worked in it practically my whole life; I guess I should have just followed the family business. It’s where the oldest child usually ends up anyway, right?
Anyway, I’m excited to go back to admissions (if anyone wants to get a degree in physical or occupational therapy, let me know). But, a little sad that the days of wearing sequins to work are over. Sure, I’ve been told my new office is “business casual”, but I don’t think that an academic office ever defines that term with shiny things.
Saturdays, though, you can bet I’ll be rocking this combo again – it’s high-low fashion perfection.
Have a great weekend, everyone, and happy Labor Day! Here’s to boats, beers, and the last breath of summer!
