My name is Marla.
In 5th grade, my homework was to look up my name in a baby book and then share with the class what it meant. I checked a lot of books (this was before we had internet people), and in the end the only definition I found was, “Marla – hasn’t been seen since the 70s.”
So I guess that means I get to re-define what being a Marla means, right?
Right now that means being a young professional in the middle of a big career transition. I’m learning a lot about job interviews, resume writing, and corporate America, and I want to document that journey for any of you who are about to experience or have experienced the same thing.
But my job is only part of who I am. I’m also a competitive ballroom dancer, married to a wonderful (and eccentric) middle school choral director, and I have a bad case of wander lust. I’ve experienced a lot on my travels and through my hobbies, and I believe there is something to be learned in everything we do. So there might be some random philosophical posts here every once in a while too.
Thanks for stopping by, and I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas! That’s why I started the blog in the first place: to start conversations and learn from others about this eternal balancing act that involves work, life, and everything in between.
So leave a comment, share these posts with others, and let’s start talking!
