In just two weeks time, I will celebrate Christmas along with the one year anniversary of my first ‘career’ job. Rushing from the marbled pillars of higher education, I jumped into the workforce anxious to make a difference and be paid for it. Maybe I was naive. Maybe I had spent too many hours daydreaming in lecture halls and contemplating the ‘what ifs’ of social progress. But this first year of work was nothing like I had imagined. It was terrifying.
