I read over my email for the 5th time in the last 2 days, corrected a word here, added a comma there, and attached my document.  Deep breath.  Ok, check one more time…recipient email? check. Subject line? check.  Should I read it one more ti…no, it’s fine.  Ok, ready, set…  I hold my breath…  Click.

Oh boy.  I did it.  I just applied for my first event-related job. 

Maybe it doesn’t sound like such a big deal to you, Reader, but I guess “firsts” are always the biggest deal to the people closest to them.  Yes, it’s the one I mentioned 2 weeks ago (see my blog post Wanted: More event experience!).  So I was a little nervous and had to rally myself (with some help, of course).  🙂  But I did it!  And whether or not it turns into a new job – or even an email reply – this will be my first career leap in this direction, which makes it worth the while.
