A New Job!

If you follow me elsewhere online (or, you know, you’re a friend IRL), you know that I’ve recently landed a new job!

I’m moving into a new position helping direct a university writing center. Yay!

There are lots of things I love about this. I worked as a student at this same writing center for four years, so I’m familiar with and fond of this particular place. Since I’ll be spending the majority of my day working one-on-one with students on their writing, my 9-to-5 will dovetail beautifully with my freelance editing work. And, bonus, my new office is actually inside a library. Score!

Students don’t arrive back on campus for several weeks, so meanwhile, I’m spending my time thinking about the really important things, like how to furnish my office space. Should I place a mirror or a large poster on the back wall? Which of my favorite reference books should come along with me (vs. staying at home in my freelance studio)? So many important questions.
