My office is moving in the middle of the month - really, even if nobody is ready for the move. On Monday, everyone got an email reiterating how to label their files, and reminding them that they could NOT take their furniture to the new building (only because it probably won't fit in the new, smaller offices). Today, I came in to discover that all the mugs, utensils, and plates have been packed away, and we're relegated to paper cups and plates and plastic spoons for the duration. The boxes are sitting rather forlornly in a corner of the kitchen. It's really quite sad looking. I think I'm glad that I won't be moving to the new location.
I'm hoping to have a new job, or at least another assignment, by the time they move. I applied today for a really great job at Santa Clara University. The commute would be long, but the job in their public affairs office would be really interesting. And I'd get to write again (professionally, that is), which I really miss. And working for the Jesuits would be an experience. The job is actually similar to one I had at SF State. Unfortunately, neither their PR office nor the one at USF (again, the Jesuits) is hiring right now, and I'm not sure I'd return to SFSU, but just knowing that there's a possibility or two out there makes me feel better. Yay for job applications!
