At first, it seems like such a simple question, but for me the definition of what a "career" really is has changed throughout the jobs I have had so far in my life. Four jobs and four very different angles on a goal that almost everybody strives for.
What I didn’t expect, since I’ve been expecting
And then suddenly you are pregnant. One random morning before work you pee on a stick, see the little second pink line in the control window and realize: everything will change now.
