GLAM Blog Club: How I Ended Up Here

It has been way too long since I’ve written a post for GLAM Blog Club. This month, the theme is How I Ended Up Here. Not only does this allow for some great feelings of nostalgia, but also, time to reflect on my journey. It’s so easy to get caught up in the present or dread/fear/anticipate the future. How often do you take the time to sit down and really just remember where you started and how far you’ve come?

“What I learned in 2016” OR “What I want to learn in 2017”

I selected the latter because I think I have already spoken at length about what I learned in 2016. Above all else, I learned the importance of being proactive and actively seeking opportunities.

There is so much I want to learn in 2017. Continue reading “GLAM Blog Club: What I Want to Learn in 2017…”
