Post-graduation plans: While I held a full time job as an Office Manager at an architecture firm in Chicago during my studies, I am resigning from my current position and moving to New York City June 18th (immediately following the graduation ceremony!) to pursue executive administration in the Manhattan area, while also trying to obtain adjunct teaching positions at the surrounding community colleges. I will also be applying to NYU for the Fall of 2012 to pursue an M.F.A. in Poetry.

Also: I am going to run at least a half marathon in every state by the time I am 30. That means 7 races per year for the next 7 years (you can do the math on my age!)
