Today is my last day working for Texas A&M University. Long story short: last summer the provost decided to consolidate the IT staff from all her small offices into one big office. That included me, even though half my job involved writing and supervising and whatnot rather than actual IT work. (I also don’t think web work should be classified as IT, but that’s another long-standing argument on campus.) As a result, right before Thanksgiving, I was moved out of the Writing Center, which I loved, into the new IT group, which I didn’t. And there wasn’t a damn thing any of us could do about it.
So, starting Monday, when the kiddo starts day care, I will be a WordPress consultant. I’m excited about it, and I’ll have more to say later. (Plus businesslike stuff, like a portfolio.) For now, naptime’s over. See you Monday.
