Long time readers may remember a post from over a year ago featuring a silly picture of me … hold on, I know that doesn’t narrow it down, let me finish … of me in a pirate hat and a princess dress.
That day I announced my new Fellowship at Creative Commons. And on that post I said, “It couldn't get more perfect. Yet, somehow, I think it'll still only go up from here.” I had no idea how right I would be.
For the past bunch of months, since my first day, I’ve been working pretty steadily with CC in various forms and incarnations. First as a Google Policy Fellow, then as an intern supported by Vanderbilt’s Public Interest Stipend – then I disappeared to take the Bar – then back as a volunteer intern. It’s been fabulous. I absolutely love what I’ve been doing there: spending my days working with people in Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and even Zambia! Never thought I’d get to sign a work email “Ndalumba,”!
Well, this week, all this fabulousness got even more fabulous. I signed on as an independent contract, part time, until after Bar results come out. Not only do I get to keep doing the work I enjoy so I much, I get paid!
Every day, there’s a new adventure and new excitement. My dreams are coming true and things are coming full circle. But maybe I’ll write about that another time….
For now, Yippie!!!!!!!!! (and I hope this good luck sticks around until results come out.)
