My first job after college was doing typical office work in a typical office setting. And like many people working at their first real job, I wondered how long I would last doing the same thing day in and day out.
I had been preparing for this job for years. An undergraduate degree in the field coupled with a string of summer internships positioned me for this role. My fate was sealed, or so it seemed. But I still found myself blindsided by an longing that would be impossible to ignore.
