My job

My only job in life right now is to learn. To sit in classrooms and books and thoughts and papers and conversations and to try and claim as much knowledge as I can: about life, about God, about myself, about the world. If you’re thinking that sounds pretty awesome, I agree! I hope that no matter how old you are or what your life looks like, you create spaces in your life to learn – today, tomorrow, as a full-time student for just a season, or as a daily hobby.

I spent the previous 4ish years working for Young Life in Chicagoland. Who I am, where I am, and who I want to be are all directly related to the people, experiences, and opportunities Young Life brought into my life.

When people used to ask me what I would do if I didn’t work for Young Life, my answer was (in no particular order): “Go to culinary school, work in a coffee shop, finish my seminary degree, or one day (fingers crossed!) open a coffee shop of my own.  I also think I would like to teach and perhaps write a book…but we’ll see.” (That’s a direct quote from what this page of my blog used to say.)

Well, currently, I am finishing my seminary degree and I do lots of work in coffee shops. I’m not in culinary school but my apartment operates as a fully functioning test kitchen and I’m starting some serious brainstorming and drafting for a book I hope to write. Time to work on a new bucket list…



One thought on “My job

  1. I want to open a coffee shop! Perhaps a joint venture?
