My first day at work was good! I can tell I’ll be learning a lot, which is great. I am already signed up for a fundraising course (continuing education) at Rice, a conference, a brunch, and am missing 2 happy hours (due to my class) – so it is definitely keeping me busy! And my Junior League placement starts tonight! This fall is turning out to be quite busy – which I think is the case for most people.
When I was getting the tour around the building, there are rehearsal rooms and the ballet was practicing! I loved seeing the dancers when I peeked into the room! I think I am where I should be – in terms of type of organization – performing arts – and non-profit versus corporate. I have a couple projects that will need to get out in the next few weeks and that really excites me! And I am sure to meet lots of folks, which will be great.
Now I’ve experienced H-town traffic. I left work last night around 530pm – prime time. So the highways were jammed – moving along, but just at a snail’s pace. I think it took me 30 minutes to get home (that is double what it should take me, sans traffic). Maybe sometime I’ll try going home locally.
And I didn’t have to cook dindin last night – one of Boom’s Marine Corps buddies was in town so they met up for some beers and dinner. I was happy to eat my peanut butter and banana sandwich on the couch!
