when it rains...

it pours.

That tends to be true whether you're referring to either the good or bad things in life. Thankfully for me, well for today at least, it's been raining in the best way possible.

After months and months of job hunting, various temp jobs and coming to terms with the possibility that my luck may just be running out and I'd be stuck moving back to Texas, I finally got offers. That's right. OFFERS. Two job offers in one day to be exact.

I could've never imagined that happening. Both are amazing offers that people would kill for. Two major corporations that are well-known and respected worldwide, CBS News (The Early Show) and the Four Seasons (Magazine).

I've been freelancing at The Early Show since late October as an assistant to one of the anchors and today my boss asked me to come on full time. She's absolutely fabulous. I really do love her, she's a great person and a joy to work with. My fear with this position is that I don't know what a it could lead to in the future.

The other position came about when my old boss from Modern Bride & Elegant Bride Magazines was recently hired at the Four Seasons Magazine. This position seems to be everything I've been looking for. Technically, I'd be a sales assistant. I'd also have the opportunity to be coordinating promotional events (such as the magazine's shows during NY Fashion Week), working closely with the sales director and publisher on creative marketing strategies and assisting the editor-in-chief with projects as needed.

Based on that alone, and especially when you throw in salary, benefits, etc., my decision is obvious. It's just difficult for me because I feel like I will be letting down whichever one I don't choose. And one of the things I hate most is that feeling that I've let someone down. But, as my friends say, this is one of the times when I do need to think about what's best for me, which is something I'm not used to doing. I guess that's just one of those things that comes with being an adult... It's a crisis of possibilities!

And I'm insanely excited!! :)
