I’m employed!

Well, I will be.

I’ve accepted an offer to work in sales for General Mills in Minneapolis.

It’s a great company with a long legacy of strong brands and values, and I’m thrilled to be part of such a respected organization. It feels great to have my job situation settled and decided before fall semester exams, and I know I’m really fortunate to be in this position.

I’ll graduate from Notre Dame in May, but my start date at General Mills isn’t until February of 2013. That leaves me with about eight months between college and career – and puts me in kind of an odd, fun limbo situation.

I’m going to have eight months to do whatever the hell I want. I’ll probably move back home, and I’ll need to find a way to fill my days. I could teach swim lessons, go to Europe, fold sweaters, sling lattes, volunteer, and/or sit around being lazy. I could do all or none or some of those things, and I think that’s cool. I’m really excited to start working for General Mills, but I’m also pretty excited to have time to relax before starting real life.

Read on to find out why…
