When I exited The Punxsutawney Spirit building following an interview for the vacant sports writer job in October 2006, I climbed into my car and flipped on my iPod as I began my 2 1/2-hour drive back to my hometown of Erie.
The iPod, which was set on shuffle at that particular moment, began to play "Dawn of a New Day," a song by my favorite band, In Flames.
Already feeling good about how well the interview went, the random appearance of this song made it clear to me: I got the job.
Fast-forward to nearly five years later, and the next step of my life is a week away from starting.
