Letter from the president: Change is in the air

Change is in the air, my friends, and change can be a good thing.

This morning, I got to enjoy brunch with a dear friend on my favorite CY patio, with a heavenly, cool breeze blowing my newly cut hair into cranberry butter slathered on a homemade biscuit.

Goodbye oppressive heat and humidity. Hello cool weather and non-sweat drenched clothes.

Change is good. Once again, we all made it through another Festival weekend. (And once again, volunteers that failed to show up for scheduled shifts can find their contact info posted on page 16 of this issue … just kidding … again.) It was yet another record-breaking year for the 4-Miler, and somehow we managed to almost double our normal earnings at the CYCA Festival booth this year. Change is good.

Finally, tomorrow, I start my new job, which I am incredibly excited about. Making a career change can be a scary thing, but sometimes you know that it is the absolute right thing to do.

The only downside to the new job is the recurring nightmare that I have been having for the last week, where I manage to show up for work wearing no pants. In these nightly dreams, sometimes, I also forget to charge my phone or develop offensive gas, but accidentally going “commando” seems to be the common thread.

I’m sure that my subconscious is subtly revealing my excitement of doing something new and slightly un-familiar, but it’s un-nerving none the less. But change is still good.

But you know what is not changing?  Our always awesome CYCA Regional BeerFest coming up on October 19! The tickets could sell out any minute! Get yours at http://beerfest.cooperyoung.org … and I promise to wear pants. See you there!
