All they were, were two simple messages.
The first one, came in September 2012 as I was sitting in my parent's home on a Saturday visit.
The other came as I was sitting in my office at The Paper’s worldwide headquarters high above Crawfordsville 19 days ago.
The first one, from my boss, Tim Timmons, said that he thought I had some talent and would be happy to interview me for a sports writing position.
The second, from my soon-to-be boss, said she thought I had some talent and would be happy to interview me to be her executive assistant.
For those keeping score, I'm 2-for-2 on the aforementioned interviews.
Unfortunately that means I must say goodbye to The Paper and to Montgomery County.
I'll be heading east, for the start of a new career in Washington D.C. I'll be the right-hand-man for a marketing executive for a national company. It's just an unbelievable shot for a high ceiling that I can't pass up.
But I will miss it here.
