Times - January 31

There was done, back in 1994, a retrospective of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, called "Crossroads on the Hill." I watched it at the time it was originally broadcast, which was during my time mostly spent at my mother's home.

And I watched it again today.

I remember how homesick it made me the last time around. I remember paying careful attention, just in case there was a shot of someplace very special to me.

Today, no homesickness, and probably a bit less careful in terms of paying attention. But it did make me think of the things that have happened in the intervening 15 years.

Funny how that works.

I'm usually one who remembers anniversaries, especially those that are mine. But I forgot that Thursday was the 30th anniversary of my first full-time, grown-up job. I'm not sure what prompted me to remember it on Friday, but I'm glad I did.

And I'm glad I had that job, which was secretarial-administrative work at Non-Profit #1, and which I kept for eight years. I learned a lot about the world, and met some really great people during that time.
