Returning to the Norm

Week of Birthday celebrations have passed and now back to the real life. New job is going GREAT! I love doing new student orientations and working with students excited yet nervous to be starting college. I’ve caught now quite quickly to the programs at the college and have started seeing walkins and will likely begin taking appointments very soon. I’m looking forward to September when I can start visiting the High Schools in the area.

Happy Birthday to Me!

I had a wonderful Birthday yesterday. Amy, wonderful person she is, drove me from dinner to pub to pub. I very much wanted to listen to live Irish music. The best I got was one Irish song from a band, but at least it was something. A bit of Sangra and lots of Cranberry and Vodkas later, I crash into a lovely slumber. Many thanks to the driver, best person in the world!

Life in the New Digs

Thanks to my lovely parents I moved the remained of my life to the new apartment on Sunday. It was a bit difficult moving from a two bedroom to a one bedroom, my spare twin size bed is now happy residing in my living room. It looks a bit odd, but my wonderful houseguests will have a comfy place to lay their heads. My nearly white carpet demands that I vacuum most every day due to Maggie (long haired black cat). Much of my stuff is still in boxes, so you can imagine my next few evenings will be consumed with unpacking—fun for me.

Life is a whirl wind

I have left Franklin University and have taken a position with Central Ohio Technical College. I am working in the Admissions department. I'm very excited. This past week was my first at COTC, I loved it! I've already done a student orientation and a recruiting event. Due to the fact COTC is in Newark, I've had to make the difficult decision to leave my beloved Grandview. I have a new apartment in Pataskala. I'm basically out in the sticks again, but at least I'm between Newark and Columbus. I can be in Newark in 15 minutes and in Columbus in 30.

Signing off for now...

Hello All,

The Blogging thing is very new to me, but thought it might be interesting to have. A good friend (Ferg) got me started. This is my first post, I'm really testing to see if this thing works. If it does, I'll keep you updated on the World According to Alison. :)
