I haven’t been blogging about my 3 quantitative and 2 qualitative goals for the year of being 32 very much, but I’ve been working on them behind the scenes. Remember the first qualitative goal?

+1. Be happier in my work
This is qualitative for now because I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to be happier. Just an attitude adjustment? Some internal changes at my current job? A different ad gig? A radical career shift? I’ve been pondering this for a while now, but I’m still “living my way into the answer.”

Well, Rilke will be happy to know that I finally found the answer: As of Monday I’m starting a new job as a writer. I’m leaving ad agency life and software clients (and downtown SLC) behind and going to work in-house at a craft company. It’s a big change, but I think it was time to shake things up–and I’m pretty excited about it.
