Every New Beginning Comes at Some Other Beginning’s End May 24, 2008

Two years ago, I came to Boston to get my Master’s degree from Emerson College. Boston was as advertised, youthful, culturally rich, full of energy and passion and, unfortunately, unacceptably cold. So last week, I graduated with my ASL friends and did exactly the opposite of most of my classmates: I quit my job. It was scary, and sad, because I will really miss @MsCharlotte, @juliehallboston, @swirlingmedia and my other SA colleagues. But now I’m going back home to Dallas and then out to LA to find my next opportunity in integrated marketing or digital communications.

I’m on the plane right now, after a wonderful last night in Boston with @AmandaMooney, @MariaGarcia and @LauraNelson. I don’t think I quite realized how much I will miss all the great friends I made in Boston until the end of the night, when we hugged and said goodbye and promised to stay in touch via Facebook and Twitter. We are all splitting up now, going to different cities to begin our different lives.

This is not a sign-off, you will hear from me when I find my new life. In the meantime, friends, please keep your promises and stay in touch. I know where you tweet, so don’t think you can hide. 😉

Goodbye, Boston. I’ll see you around the blogosphere.

Amy Yen!!! I miss you so much already! You are an amazing person (truly) and I can’t wait until we can hang out offline again. Until then, we have ASL, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace (well, not really MySpace), PROpenMic… oh and phone, snail mail and email of course. Keep me posted if you think of anything I can do to convince you to move to NY:) Thanks for being an awesome colleague, classmate and friend. The people and companies in LA and Dallas don’t know how lucky they are to have you.

Amy, I know you’ll rock it wherever you end up. Congratulations on finishing your degree as well! I had a great time working with you, riding the T with you and attending events with you around Beantown during your time in our little city. I do hope our paths cross again IRL, but in the meantime, we know where to find each other on this crazy Internet thing. All the best, Amy!

Amy, we will miss you here, too! Although your time at SA was brief, you definitely had a big influence on our cold little Awesometown here on Oliver Street. Good luck in Dallas, and keep up the liveblogging. Keep us posted with where you end up. 🙂
