Lunchtime Poll: Big Changes

Welcome back to post-holiday life, Persephoneers! And welcome to the Year We’re Not Bored, two thousand and twelve!

Today’s Lunchtime Poll is all about new beginnings. More specifically: even though the year is yet young, there might be a few big things coming up in the course of the next 12 months that you already know are happening. What do you know is yet to come this year?

For me: the big one is that I’m getting married! I’m also ecstatically stoked to see the new things that’ll happen this year here at Persephone.

well, my lease is up in june so i’ve got to find another place to live.  might think about a job change later on this year, too.  i SHOULD take the GRE at some point if i intend to go to grad school in the sort of near future.

sigh. stress.


on a happier note, my guy who lives quite a ways away is coming to visit for a bit this month and also later this year.  whew!

Yay! Wedding!

As for me, we’ll hopefully be having a cross country move as my husband’s department was “let go” just before New Year’s. I am looking at the opportunity as a new beginning, though. We’ve been watching to move to the San Francisco area for a while, but safe, cushy jobs kept us where we are. We’re in a better place than a lot of people who get laid off, I’m in a better emotional state than I was a year ago, and, really, this is just allowing us to do what we’ve been too scared to do before. Also, I’m turning 30 in July, so it’s a great year for great things!

Westward, Ho!

I look forward to teaching a college class for the very first time. I am a bit intimidated, as I am a young’n and I will probably be teaching people the same age as me, but I am working through that by developing an awesome professional wardrobe and telling myself I’m at the front of the classroom because of my education, not my age.
