...Working with SG, interviewing students for a coop position. He reminded me of the core values of public service, the ones that inspired me to join and the ones that will continue to motivate me well in my career. It was refreshing to remember that not all is bleak and cynical (like my immediate colleagues would have me believe) and that there are true gentlemen left in the world and particularly in the bureaucracy. So inspired! And while I still don’t know what I want to do yet (specifically), I now know how I want to do it: with integrity.

So I received a call this morning asking me if I can start work next Monday. Obviously, I said yes! I’m a little weary, it still is a government job, and we all know how those are. I hope I can keep my spirits up long enough to hopefully prosper and maybe even advance. All government offices can’t be pits of doom. I hope.
It’s work in my field, which is nice, and something I once said I wouldn’t mind doing. This could be a nice fresh start, as long as everything goes well with the mountains of paperwork I need to fill out to even be considered (although the director has expressed a keen interest in hiring me).
It may or may not be work I love, I don’t know yet. But how will I know unless I try?
