New Job

In a few weeks, I will be embarking on a great American tradition:

Commuting.

I have just accepted a job offer for a genealogy company in Salt Lake City, and I'm pretty excited. Of course, I do live in Provo, so I'll have a really lovely commute- about 45 minutes each way. On the up-side, there may be carpooling involved. We'll see how it works out.

Meanwhile, I'm really excited about this job. It is a great career opportunity for me (hello, actually working in the field of my training). I'm excited about working with some of my old classmates (this one in particular), and I'm excited about the hands-on genealogy training I'm going to get.

As I have mentioned a couple of times, if you are a psychologist who specializes in working with schizophrenics, it's not something you really want to use in your personal life. But a genealogist trained in Irish research? Yes, please, I WOULD like to use that in my personal life. Bring on the training.

That's awesome, Sherry. Congratulations!

I commuted for about 6 months from Provo to SLC. It's usually not too bad in the mornings as long as you have something to listen to in the car (books on audio CD and old BYU Devotional or General Conference talks are my favorites), and especially if you go at a less congested hour than 7:30-8:00am.

My cousin has had a lot of luck with his carpool. Good luck!
