Movin On Up

Sunday, May 5, 2013

What an exhausting week.  I spent Monday through Thursday down in DC.  It was kind of a last minute decision to send me down there so I don't even think I mentioned it on the blog.  Traveling down there for work isn't nearly as exciting as going for fun.  I spent three days in a hotel without stepping outside once.  They were a busy and exhausting few days but I learned a lot which is good because... I'm getting a promotion!

Another thing I don't think I've mentioned on the blog but my boss is retiring.  Because he is leaving they are promoting someone in our office into his position and then another person into that one which has left a third postion open.  The open position is the Training & Development Specialist which means I will coordinate and facilitate internal and external training programs for all 1200 of our employees.  It's a lot of responsibility but I think I'm ready for it.  I have learned so much in my current postion but it is a lot more data entry than I would like so I am eager to take on this new position.

The transition doesn't take place until June 1 but I have so much I have to learn before then.  I also have to make sure I train my replacement which is a job in itself!

Because I'm expecting a slight bump in pay I've started (or re-started) looking at apartments.  I should wait and save money to buy something but I realized the other day that this month marks the longest period of time I've lived at home since high school.  I think it's time to get a move on!
