Friday Five: New Beginnings

  1. I've worked one week at my new job. The week included an evening board meeting and a home meeting in Austin. Next week I actually get to start doing my job and contacting volunteers and setting up meetings. Yay!

  2. I miss the cheap gas prices in Lubbock. I'm paying about 20 cents more per gallon here, but at least the price is dropping.

  3. I went to Wine Wednesdays with the other newbie at work and four girls that work on TV. Being surrounded by 22-year-old TV personalities was a definite change in pace. They make me feel old!

  4. I went to a tumor conference this week. Being surrounded my doctors and nurses for the past six years in Lubbock came in handy because I wasn't totally lost. That didn't mean I knew what I was looking at on CT scans though.

  5. I started my ACS t-shirt connection today. I'm going to collect ACS and Relay for Life shirts quicker than I collected LCU shirts. I didn't think that was possible.
