During my first 3 days at the new job, I've spent over 7 hours in meetings or conference calls

June 25th, 2015, 4pm

Before, my meetings would be with and for the students, but thus far, I’ve conversed with a student for barely 2 whole minutes. All these hours have been with the college VP, Deans, other Directors, my staff, and the college’s research & data partners.

At these meetings I’ve been the youngest person, sometimes by decades. This new pimple next to my nose just shows my age even more. Also not used to this, because I’ve grown accustomed to conversations in which I am the oldest person.

Some terms are coming out of my mouth for the first time — institutional effectiveness, restructuring responsibilities, front-ending services — it’s like “whoa who am I?”

So, it’s so different in many ways. I’m liking my new job, but I miss the kids!
