It’s been a while since I checked in, I think. Lots has happened in the past week, so I’m going to break it down.

Monday I went to lunch with my office as my last hurrah. It was exciting to have my meal paid for and to spend time with them, although it wasn’t much of a celebration of my time there. I did, however, get an awesome picture of the Union and a card from the staff.

Tuesday was pretty chill, I didn’t do a whole lot for my last day in my old job. I had my first meeting with the students in the evening, and it was a fairly long meeting but enjoyable. I was introduced and the newspaper quoted me without me knowing they were doing so. Weird.

Wednesday was my first day in the office. It was a whirlwind with lots of information thrown at me plus learning how the students were handling / reacting to the campus climate issues. It’s a lot, but it energizes me to an extent.

Today was quite chill. I spent time with someone from assessment to talk about learning outcomes with the students. I also went with Ashley for coffee to thank her for being a recommendation. It was helpful and I appreciate her. I still need to set something up with Nick.

This weekend will fly by and next weekend we are going to Fayetteville.

Yesterday LBJ sent out an email to assembly announcing my new position. It’s becoming more real each day.

I feel scatter brained today, and I’m not sure why.

I don’t want to do anything work related.

I had a lovely weekend with Cameron.  Festifall was Friday and I just headed over right after.

Saturday we went and met his parents and sisters. Then we took his sisters to an apple orchard but they only had one kind. It was fun and cute, though. After that we took them to get sushi which was also fun, and ended the hangout session with Pokemon 🙂 They both beat me 😉 lol

After that we went back to Cameron’s and his friends came over. We played Clue and ate pizza and drank beer.

I woke up this morning to a cold sore, so that’s cool. Not really. lol. I knew it was coming, I ordered Valtrex a while ago. I’ve been in bed all day except for the UAC town hall. Samantha was supposed to explain the transition but didn’t, so didn’t even talk about myself.

Now I’m watching Atypical and getting mad at the horrible people.

What a whirlwind this past weekend has been. I can’t believe it. Welcome kicked off with Movie on the Diag which was pretty well attended even though the vendor sucked. I didn’t work Friday which was nice. Saturday we were in the Big House for the event and I was really tired after that – I came home and Cameron and I passed out by 8. Sunday I only worked for an hour. Monday I worked North Fest.

Friday was really fun because Cam and I went to the paint party at Necto. We were back by 1am, but it was really really fun. We both very much enjoyed ourselves.

Sunday we went to Aut with Christopher, David, and later Matt. We all went back to my place and hung out 🙂 It was nice.

Today I got a job offer from CSG to make $10,000 more than I do currently. They said they can’t go up which I understand but I don’t. I bring more to the table than other external candidates, so I’m struggling with that a little bit. But I think I should take it regardless.

Life is looking up.
