So, I disappeared for most of this month.
I meant to write about visiting cousins in North Carolina for the Fourth, but then I didn’t.
I’ve just been busy with getting set up at my new job, winding down my current one and trying to work out some other stuff because this has been a hectic first half of the year.
Like, hectic to the point where I want to fast forward to October.
Monday marks a big preliminary day at my new job and kicks off the final two weeks at my current one. I had to draft a biography for my official introduction, and I need a portrait shot for the day I start.
I think I’m about to become a minor public figure (again).
I mean, I’ll most likely be able to go to the grocery store without being approached by everyone, but people are going to look for me on Google. They’re going to find my two Twitter accounts. They’re going to find their way here.
I need to prepare myself to being the one people call and being a public face and all of that stuff again. I haven’t had to do that since 2011.
I’m not afraid of it, but it’s about to be all me again. I’m glad I have some time to let this all sink in. Luckily, I have a better idea of what I’m doing this time around because the stakes are higher.
