wide-eyed and bushy haired

well, folks, I can officially tell you what the heck I’ve been hinting at for the past few posts: I’m switching jobs. Leaving Duke is going to be/has been one of the most difficult things I’ve done in my adult life…but I’m hoping it pays off in the end. I’m moving to a veterinary pain management clinic nearby working with post-op patients and other pets that need physical therapy help– this part I am very excited about! I’ve missed working with people and their pets on a regular basis, and having a patient/client relationship. However, I’m terrified that I’m giving up a really good position, complete with a retirement plan, pension and good benefits for something that has no guarantee. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m not going to have insurance, or be completely thrown to the wolves…but still. I’m not someone that does well with change, and when I’m the one that’s causing it it’s really confusing! I’ve worked at Duke basically since I graduated college and had hoped to be there for many more years, but life happened and the career path for me had come to a stagnant point. Maybe one day in the future I’ll think back to this decision and be amazed at how nervous I was about it since it ended up being so successful! Who knows, maybe the change of pace will let me meet the man of my dreams and finally find someone that I can sit at home and cook with, dance around singing with spoons and take the dogs hiking with…

more about my state of terror and confused emotions later- for now I’ve just been trying to function somewhat normally with all the commotion going on in my head.

About Erin Goes Blah- I rant forever

Ever heard of Erin Go Brah? The horse obviously, not the saying! I'm him, in human form but slightly less successful and well known. Perhaps you've also heard of a man named William Shakespeare? In "A mid-summer nights dream" he says, "though she be but little, she is fierce" in reference to Hermia...I have a little bit of that in my mix too. I'm a 26-year-old big kid with occasional adult tendencies just trying to figure out my place in life. Chronically single and exhausted I am the keeper of two jobs and three pets. With approximately 2 hours of free time per day, ​I tend to use it relaxing- leading to much musings and wonderment. I plan on using this blog to reach out to others, and to my inner conscience to better understand my odd habits and talk myself out of them. I hope to bring attention to those in eating disorder recovery, by being open about my hardships and hurdles. I'm weird, silly and looking for someone to share the love with :)
