In the spirit of the VH1 “Where are they now?” program, here’s a brief summary of what I have been doing for the last 6-7 years of my life since leaving school. (For those of you who I haven’t talked to)
Just kidding…I have done a few things:
Moved to the ATL and started doing marketing/PR for Atlanta Ballet after college. (Was so excited and passionate to combine my marketing degree with something I truly loved…ballerinas…I mean the Arts. I would come to find out that doing something you love right after college was pretty rare…I would also come to find out that no, just because a ballerina is stretching outside your office does NOT mean that she likes you)
After a year and a half I took a job at the Alliance Theatre (great step up) and I have been there for about four and a half years now. I have gotten so much experience and learned so much about working/dealing with people. Wouldn’t trade it for the world. I probably would have been bored after a few years and left by now but I have a great boss who has kept me challenged and engaged and given me opportunities to grow. (Who your boss is can make all the difference in the world)
A few dating relationships here or there but nothing serious enough to move towards marriage.
I am a very proud uncle though...I have two beautiful nieces (Carolyn - 5 years and Averi - 2 years) who love Disney princesses and pink things and one nephew (Ben - 5 months) who loves trucks, nascar and football…sweet! (And yes, he is a Dale Jr. fan)
Biggest change: Found a church I love about a year and a half ago and gave my life to Christ. I grew up Baptist but was turned away when I went to UGA because how attractive is it to have to conform to a certain set of standards BEFORE you are accepted into a church? What a turnoff….Buckhead Church rocks and for the first time in my life I know what they mean when they say “personal” relationship with Jesus.
My whole outlook on life has changed which I’m sure I will talk about later…even to the point that I am considering a career change – moving to Bolivia to become a long-term missionary. We will see…
Anyway, that is my brief summary of the last 6 years. Warren, did I miss anything?
Back to work…
