New Work

Who: Me
What: getting a job as a project architect
Where: a medium sized architecture firm in Golden
When: Starting Monday, with a 3 month mutual probation period (I get to try out them at the same time they're trying me out)
Why: Because I need a job, and this one looks like it will allow me to stretch my abilities so that I may become a more well-rounded and developed architect. I'm used to working on one large project at a time. This position will have me working on anything from 2 to 12 small projects at a time. I will become a champion multi-tasker or perish. ;)

The first project I'll be working on is a historic preservation project in the Civic Center of downtown Denver. I haven't seen much to do with preservation in about 12 years, but I learn quickly. My brain already started clicking away when they described the project to me. The next project will be a border patrol station (?) in Texas. Obviously, there will be opportunities for domestic travel with a firm that has contracts with the federal government.

Thank you, everyone for your support. A special thank you goes out to Cheryl, who let me know about this position way back in April (when they started considering applicants). I do plan to do something celebratory (already went out to dinner with Stacey last night), probably a party of some sort.

Pro: While I love and appreciate my friends and family paying for me nearly every time we went out, I will be glad to not have to be a charity case anymore. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my dears. You are wonderful. Now put your money away.

Con: I've gotten used to being free to visit family and volunteer for things whenever I wanted. AND this is seriously going to cut into my Facebook and Farmtown time. The horror! The horror!

Yay, yay, yay!!!

Oh, and we're totally going out and having a drink to celebrate when I get there in July. Totally.
