I was too exhausted after yesterday’s first day, and after covering my last New Albany Village Council meeting, to post about the job, but I have a few minutes before leaving for my first assignment. I am a little nervous about blogging at this job, unlike at SNP, but here’s to testing the waters.
Day One entailed meeting a LOT of people, promptly forgetting half their names, and then being quizzed on the various agencies covered by the union. At the end of yesterday, I was given four agencies to cover. I will do their newsletters and write assignments about them for the quarterly magazine.
1) ODNR, the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources
2) ODOT, the Ohio Dept. of Transportation
3) Ohio EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency
4) BWC, the Bureau of Worker’s Compensation
Today, I am reading everything I can get my hands on about these agencies. The ODNR assembly meets Sept. 13, and I have to cover it. Too bad that was the Saturday morning/afternoon I was going to use to pick up Brittany and Adam for the weekend. Brandon has graciously offered to go get them for me, and have them here when I get done with work at 1. Just in time for lunch at Betty’s, which I know they will both love.
I’m also covering something THIS Saturday, from 9-11 a.m., so in two weeks here, I will have covered nearly as many weekend events as I did for SNP.
In other news, my office is terribly empty. I need some personal touches in here, pronto.
My big fear is that this job will make my life terrifically boring; things and stuff better keep happening.
