Earned. That's the one word that comes to mind as I punch the keys on this post. After seven years at NYU, I will be ending my chapter there this week. It's been a long and adventurous chapter, and honestly, it's been an awesome seven years. Like, seriously, AWESOME. Despite the usual complaints we all have about our workplaces, which of course pops up from time to time, my seven years at NYU has provided me with joy, memories, tremendous people, and the ability to develop in sooooooo many ways, professionally. It was easy to tell - I loved my job. After all, this very job, was my dream job.
