Wow, guys! Yesterday was the last day at my traditional construction job. And today I get to dabble in the feeling of zero professional obligation. Though I’m quickly realizing there isn’t a switch – it will take some time to mentally distance myself from projects I’ve been so deeply vested in. There is a sense of calm that comes with letting go. Today marks the beginning of transition.
And being someone who fully believes in starting things off “right”, the first breakfast of my transition period needed to be perfectly me. I threw on some cozy sweats, embraced the arrival of Austin chill, and leisurely walked through my neighborhood to grab a cup of coffee and some bacon.
Upon my return, I slowly cooked the bacon over medium-low heat and used Alton Brown’s instructions for poached eggs. This transition breakfast was delightful.
So what’s the plan? In a little over a week, I will begin my new professional journey as the construction and facilities manager for a local real estate company that owns and operates properties and restaurants (like Uchi!). This is an opportunity that combines my professional and personal passions and one that I never even thought to dream of, let alone land.
In the meantime, I’ll be decompressing, music festing, traveling, and just plain ol’ doing!
