Pretty sunrise this morning, even if I had to see it through the office window.

There won't be many more of these. I'm starting a new job soon. People who've been on my flist for a while may remember that my company's been wanting me to move up the ladder into a better job, and I was reluctant to do so because I like my shift hours. Well, an opening came up in the database area, on an off-hours schedule, and since it was pretty much my only chance to change jobs without getting stuck on a standard 9-5, I jumped on it. A ton of people put in a good word for me and helped me in various ways (seriously - I had no idea this many people even knew who I was) and after a couple of interviews I was offered the position. Truth be told, I was initially only interested because of the hours (2 PM to 2 AM, three days a week), but the more I thought about it, the more I thought it'll be fun to do something new and more technical than the support work I've been doing. I don't know yet when I'll be changing jobs, but I'm looking forward to it. Evening hours all the time, and only three days a week. It doesn't get much better than that. :)

The delays in getting things organized is a bit of a problem, since I have the North American Discworld Convention looming two months ahead and I haven't been able to request time off or buy my plane tickets yet. I need to know what schedule I'll be working over Labor Day before I can do any of that, preferably ASAP because I'm probably going to look into finding some random strangers to share my hotel room. The friend who I was hoping would join me at the con had to cancel, and that's a long con to foot the whole hotel bill for, not to mention the somewhat gloomy prospect of having no one to hang out with. :\ I'm hoping to find some other women traveling alone like me who might be looking to make some new friends - but again, can't even ask until I know for sure which days I'll be in Phoenix. Argh.

Now I'm off to my hometown for the rest of the week. Be back Sunday.
