about me

My photo
Denver, Colorado, United States
i'm 33. i live with my husband, baby daughter 2 dogs and 1 kitty. i'm a chemical engineer with an MBA and work in technical sales. i tend to bite off more than i *think* i can chew and end up with a full bulging mouth for awhile before i can finally swallow. i thrive in chaos, but strive for order.


could it be just what i need?

i have an interview in 3.5 hours for a job that is the exact opposite of what i went to school for.

i didn't go out looking for this job. it just kind of fell into my lap. just part of all the cosmic things that have been happening to me lately due to the new people i've met.

i am excited and nervous. for taking a huge risk. one that will probably make my life as i know it obsolete. and one that will probably make me pretty damn happy. my nervousness lies in justifying my decision to my boss. who will no doubt be pretty unhappy to see me go. and who has been such a fantastic boss that i cringe about having to tell him i'm leaving.

and i can't help but wonder if taking this job will set into motion several new changes that should have happened awhile ago, moving me onto a completely different life path.

it's funny how once you think you have everything figured out, something happens that changes it all. and i love it. i live for those unexpected moments and surprises. predictability and stability don't excite me. i'd rather experience extremes highs and lows and adventures. at least then i have an entertaining story.


  1. Hey KT - hope the interview went well!! It would be the perfect job for you!

  2. Man, I'm so jealous.... and happy for you. Maybe you could spread some of that karma around?

  3. I'm thinking of you as you try to make this decision. Always go for the hard decision and give fear very little attention. (I don't suppose this new job is in Seattle?) :)

  4. I dont think I know anyone who works in the profession they went to college for.
    Besides, the jobs that just fall into your lap out of no where, are usually the best ones.

  5. Are you still doing your MBA? Don't change your job unless it will give you a lot more time to study. I think changing jobs would just add more stress.
