new...

new...

doesn't the word new revive you...it does me...!!!

there's something about starting something new that generates a bit of a buzz for me...starting a new job in Dublin 5 years ago was one, making new friends while i was working in dublin...finding myself with a new girlfriend 2 and a bit years ago...

booking flights and making a trip to start a new life in america was another...starting a new chapter...i'm getting married to that new girlfriend from 2 and a bit years ago in 8 weeks, and we're starting out our new life together as a married couple...

and to add to our blessings, i was offered a new job yesterday...all my hard work and endeavours have paid off...i guess i've spent about 2 months job-searching since i received my work authorisation papers here in the states...

it was frustrating at times...applying through online agencies and adverts in papers, and receiving no feedback...or receiving an automatic email with a gentle let down...

i knew if i could get myself in front of someone i would be able to deliver on selling myself...i think its safe to say i'm quite personable, and i have a strong portfolio with a diverse range of projects to show for my hard-work since graduating in 2002...

so get myself in front of someone i did...

that led to an interview last week, which led to an invitation to accept a job offer yesterday...

i'm very excited...i'm going to be a CAD specialist for the store planning and design team for one of the worlds biggest retailers...i'm excited about applying my skill sets to a new role and meeting new challenges...

new job...go me...wish me luck...
