Por Fin, a New Adventure

I tried to write a new series of haikus over the summer to capture the essence of my “funemployment,” but it was hard to sell the self-deprecating humor. The haikus went something like:

Today I woke up
and arranged sea shells by size.

IMG_2425 After drafting many iterations of my resume, a mountain of cover letters, and traveling to interviews in Miami, New York, Boston and DC, I landed a job at a wonderful organization called VaxTrac.  I’m their newest Program Associate.   It’s based in DC, the city that I’ve been fantasizing about living in since I lived here:

My home in my site, La Dalia, Matagalpa

So Maní and I packed our bags and arrived in DC last week.

Moving day!

Moving day!

I even fit the Ikea bed in my car.

I’m really proud at how my room turned out.  Here’s my new and improved Tour de House: IMG_0005IMG_0004 I will blog at length about my new job at VaxTrac in later posts, but for now, I just want to say that one of the perks of working there is that I get to bring Maní to work with me.

So, in conclusion, I am so happy to have landed where I have landed. Here’s to new adventures in DC!
