An Absence Explained: Life and Lit
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Holy cow. It has been three weeks since I last posted. Three weeks! Where does the time go?
I've been desperately juggling a lot of things for a while now and I just finally hit critical capacity. My blog had to go neglected.
I accepted a new position at work as a "Clinical Research Coordinator." Sounds way important, doesn't it? Don't let that Coordinator title fool you. There's a director above me who is very hands-on. Thank goodness. There's also a part-time person and that's my whole department. The doctors at the office where I work take part in a lot of clinical drug studies and I'll be helping with those. I have a feeling it's a job you either love or hate. I really think it's going to be a good fit for me. Variety, independence, details, time with patients but not too much... At the beginning, I'm scrambling to get in a ton of training. I've just really gotten started this week but in the interim, I've had a lot of reading to do. A lot. Hopefully I will get caught up on all that soon and get back to some sort of normalcy. Until that happens, I'll only be posting sporadically.
I'm not giving up on my blog by any means, and I don't even expect this interruption to last much longer. I ask for your patience as I struggle to find my footing in this new role. I'll be posting a Character Connection on Thursday for sure, and I do still check in on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest occasionally.
Meanwhile, let me just say that I've read and mostly loved The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman, and Juniper Berry by M. P. Kozlowsky. I'm currently reading Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran and I am wholeheartedly loving it.
