I've always said that I would never start a blog unless I had a reason to blog. I've always liked the idea of a blog, and I secretly enjoy reading other blogs, but I've never really had any motivation to join the world of blogging myself. Now, however, an adventure may be in my not-so-distant future, and I feel like it is blog-worthy.
It is very likely that I am going on a trip! By trip, I mean business trip. And by business trip, I mean short-term assignment. It is extremely common for the company that I work for to provide opportunities for employees to travel and even work short-term (and long-term) all over the world. So while this has come as somewhat of a surprise to some people who I've told about this, it was less than surprising to me when the opportunity arose.
So the plan now is that sometime in early to mid-October, I will be finishing my current assignment in Greenville and taking on an 8-week assignment in our Santiago, Chile office. That's right...I will most likely be spending the fall in South America!
More details to come (once I get them), but I'm really excited about this possibility! Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of things that I am anxious about and will miss (Zack and Sadie!), but this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
I've got lots of stuff I'm excited about sharing in this blog related to my trip, but since I've just spent 2 hours trying to get this blog set up (and I'm still not fully satisfied with it), I think it's time to call it a night.
