A Year Comes & Goes


A year ago yesterday I was 23 years old, driving an old 1992 Buick Century and preparing for my first day at a new company. Not sure if I’d fit in or get along with my coworkers. Who am I kidding I get along with everyone but at the time I had a bad case of the “first day jitters.” You know that feeling when you start the first day of school or a new job or a new anything. That anxiety of the unknown is killer but we are human so deep down we are pretty adaptable. The first month of working at Pinpoint was exciting and honestly it hasn’t worn off.

Today I am driving a car that I just purchased this week and this one doesn’t have a map light nor a cassette player like the 92 Buick. If I’m dating myself and you don’t know what this is please Google it you will get a good laugh.

It’s crazy how quickly a year has gone by and I still have my job and I still enjoy going to work everyday as much as I did when I started 1 year ago. I have never in my life enjoyed my time at work as much as I do at this company so that is how I know that I found my niche. This is a good career fit for me and the company is going to be very big one day- I know it. I am growing with Pinpoint Promotions and helping the company gain further success and I can’t imagine being anywhere else.

So much has happened in a year, good and bad but today I am happy and I know that I am right here where I am supposed to be and life keeps getting better. I used to fear getting older but I think it’s going to be just fine. I’m going to be just fine.

  1. Dear Amanda,

    My daughter saw today’s article in the Associated Press about you and sent it to me. I have a feeling your readership may go through the roof soon!

    I wonder if your mom might remember me from Paraguay.  My late husband John Wiley and I met a lot of Americans who were in the adoption process.  My husband tried to advocate for them to the American consul.  He was an American who retired in Paraguay.  

    By the way, I can teach you Spanish (and Guarani!) for free.  :). And I can put you in touch with my brother who travels to Paraguay a lot and may have some tips about how to get cheaper tickets.
    Best wishes!
