November 30, 2005 will be my last day at the WVU Center on Aging where I've worked for the past 2 years. I will start at the WVU Office of Information Technology as a Web Developer on Dec. 1.
I've really enjoyed working with Maria, Sherry and Jessica and the others at the Center on Aging. I've worked on so many projects and have been extremely pleased with our efforts on the WVSeniors Project especially. I'll be sad not to see them every day, but I am looking forward to the challenges and experience my new position will bring.
I'm looking forward to working primarily with web design and development again. I've found that those skills get more difficult if you don't use them regularly. I've also been so busy with other projects and aspects of my position at the CoA that I've not had time to continue to learn and keep up with Web design practices. Since that is what I consider the primary focus of my career, I felt this was the best move for me.
I have to say, though, that I would not trade the past two years for anything, though. In working with Maria, I have learned so much more and really had a wonderful opportunity to hone my skills in public relations, project management, community outreach and media communications, grant writing, etc.
But - time to move on. I think Kira & Steve will also appreciate the fact that the new job's location shaves 20-30 minutes (if not more) to my commute. The parking situation is also a lot better. (I won't complain to much, but let's just say the parking at HSC and access to the Center on Aging building leaves a lot to be desired. Readers can fee free to comment, however.)
I will miss having my own office, though. That is one nice thing about working in a trailor. We all have our own rooms. I assume it will be back to cubicle land - we'll see.
That's all for now. Harry Potter comes out this weekend and next week is Thanksgiving, so there will be much more to do and post about later - most likely on Kira's Blog.
