This weekend, someone paid me a very nice compliment. The bar we were in was extremely loud, and I don't think I was able to thank him properly. So thank you. You are very kind.
I was also unable the answer his original question, "So, what do you do?"
Well, for eight or so hours every day, I assist my company's resellers, both domestic and international, in helping their clients hire the best employees by using our products. Strategic Accounts Manager is my official title. Oddly enough, I really enjoy my job. Well, the job is a job, but I really enjoy the people I work with, and I truly believe that my company provides a great service. Good stuff all around. I'm one of the lucky ones.
So, the other 16 hours of the day, what do I do? Well, I play and coach soccer. Dave and I are also photographers, though we're going back to more of the amateur route. I'm also a wife, and parent (dog, two cats, and a fish), a daughter, granddaughter, a daughter-in-law, a sister-in-law, an aunt, a cousin, and a friend. I'm a homeowner, which also translates into an amateur repairwoman, painter, and maid. Luckily, I'm rarely a cook. Oh yeah, and I'm a groupie.
What I am, but I don't do, is a degreed writer - UGA, Grady College of Journalism, Class of 1997, in Magazines. I'm also an English minor.
What do I want to be that I'm not, yet? Well, I'd very much like to be debt-free. And a kayaker. And I'd like to be a mother in the more small-human-being sense. And, well, for a little fantasy, I'd like to be an absolute badass with a rockin' body, like Jessica Biel in Blade Trinity.
So what about you? What do you do? What are you? What did you study to be? And what would you like to be? Beuller, Beuller. Anyone?
