Hi from DC!
Thank you all for your sweet comments about my new job! Some of you asked for more details – I will basically be a project manager/program coordinator for a distance graduate program that involves extensive world-wide travel, so I’ll be coordinating travel logistics, managing mailings, helping plan graduations, making recommendations for improvements based on student feedback, and managing work-study students. I’ll be the go-to person for any task that can’t be handled by the program managers and I’m also pretty low on the ladder, so I’m sure other projects will be sent my way. It is very different than school psychology, but I was ready to give something new a try. I have also really enjoyed the program coordination/evaluation side of working in a school, so I think I’ll enjoy program support work. I’m sure I will be able to share more about the job along the way, as I learn more.
Right now, I’m just concentrating on having fun!
I arrived in DC yesterday, just in time for wine and appetizers with the girls. Then we headed out to bars in Georgetown where we drank white sangria and caught up on life. It’s so nice to see these ladies after such a long time (a few are missing from this picture.) Oh, and my friend brought us friendship-ish bracelets from Turkey!
Today, we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and took turns using the little gym in my friend’s basement before heading to her country club for pool time. It’s miserably hot, so we spent most of our time in the water.
I also enjoyed a Sam Summer, which tasted fabulously refreshing in the hot sun. Now, it’s time for showers, more sangria, lots of cheese, and another night on the town. See ya tomorrow!
