This is it.
As difficult as it is for me to say this, I am leaving Philly for good Tuesday morning to move back to California.
As much as I wished to stay in these parts for much longer, I can only hope that moving back to the place where life as I know it got started will be all for the better. For now, I remain optimistic about where things will go from here.
Here’s my #Read3 for this Sunday and what I can expect for the week ahead.
- Reflections and Expectations: Farewell, Philly. I Hardly Knew Ye. – In my latest monthly wrap-up post, I look back on the month that was and the month to be. PRSA 2013 International Conference and PRSSA 2013 National Conference in late October were the dominant events of October along with it being my final full month in Philadelphia and the East Coast.
- 2013 PRSA International Conference Roundup – Cision North America’s Cision Blog recaps the PRSA 2013 International Conference through a series of tweets from conference participants last weekend. I will have my own recap of the conference later on this week.
- Work Hard, Live Hard: Drawing Inspiration From New Experiences – Jessica Lawlor, who I finally had a chance meet in person last weekend during the PRSA 2013 International Conference, shares in her latest post about how to strike an effective work-life balance that allows you to live a little. In sum, trying out new things is key.
If you have any recommendations for next week’s #Read3, leave a comment below at any time during the week or tweet me @SimonOh.
- San Francisco – When I leave Philadelphia on Tuesday morning, I am headed to San Francisco for a few days as what will likely be my last vacation for the foreseeable future. I’ve been there twice before but not purely for leisure. It’ll be different this time.
- Southern California – The expectedly proverbial lull begins to kick in Friday upon returning from San Francisco. No big things within sight from that point on although I will continue to focus on the job search, studying for the GMAT and preparing for the start of the graduate certificate program with the Mineta Transportation Institute through San Jose State University.
In case you forgot, Daylight Savings Time ends today. Be sure to turn your clocks back by one hour, if you haven’t done so already. Regardless, have a great rest of your week!
