A change of scenery
Years ago, I was the new kid on the block here in Indianapolis. I was a young, just-married, brand-new resident of the city. A few years after that, I was visiting – literally along with New Kids On the Block – and trying to sleep while pre-teen girls screamed outside our hotel window. Ah, it’s all coming back to me, step by step. (If you were one of those screaming girls, you'll see what I did there.) I’m sitting in a hotel room in Indy remembering oh-so-many-years ago when I lived here for a short time. My husband was in tech school in the Air Force at the Army post and it’s the first place we lived after we were married. In fact, it’s the first place I ever lived after leaving the house I grew up in. Five years after that, we came back for an anniversary visit and ended up at the same hotel the boyband du jour happened to be staying at. Needless to say, it wasn’t quite the romantic trip we envisioned amongst screams of “Jordan! Joey!” outside our window late into the night. Now, about a billion years later, I’m back here for a conference along with a bunch of other awesome content producers and strategists in higher education and remembering how great it is to change my scenery every once in a while.View story photos
