I'm fortunate to have a job that really challenges me and gives me a sense of accomplishment. I work with energy efficiency - I really assimilated my college ecology classes and I've always been happiest with work where I feel like I'm contributing towards helping us live in a more balanced way. It plays to a lot of my strengths, which is handy. Less on the playing to my strengths side is the plan where I'm taking on a good portion of the media requests for the department. I'm thinking about making it more exciting by dropping shout-outs for my favorite authors or inserting old movie lines, or maybe requiring my friends and family to take a drink when I say 'papaya'.
My position tends towards exercising the left brain, so to balance it out I'm getting back into practicing the fiddle, which I took up last year and is super fun. It feels like a mini-vacation after work.
Fair warning, I also enjoy the occasional cheesy outing - I've been to both the world’s largest ball of twine and the world’s steepest gondola ride. I know! Exciting! ;)
