But this year will be my first full year in a professional environment and I’m a bit terrified. I am also so excited.
At Mary Baldwin College I get to work with college students to grow food. I get to talk to students about issues I think are the most important and hear what they think is most important. I can make an impact similar to the impacts made on me by my mentors in school.
For the first time I feel that I have a supportive work-environment that can propel me forward to accomplish the things I want to accomplish. Having an office job in the past has felt like the antithesis of my personality and goals. I want to be busy, interacting with people, working outside, standing up, and caffeinated. However, being stationed at the Spencer Center, I am able to be busy, interact with people, work outside (soon!), and able to stand all day if I want (my advisor has a stand up desk, which is just a great idea). My years as a barista are certainly missed right now, but as I’m adjusting I am realizing change isn’t so bad.
