She Who Doesn't Blog Explains...
I first and foremost apologize that it has been so long since I was last able to write a blog entry of much substance. As many of my friends and peers know I began a new job October 6, 2008 at the United States Department of Energy.
Needless to say my office, which deals with public and intergovernmental affairs, has been very busy preparing for the new administration. I have been fortunate enough to work on briefs for President Elect Obama’s transition team as well as presentations for the new Secretary of Energy, Dr. Chu. It is a very exciting time to be working in Washington D.C.
How does this all relate to me not blogging? I simply find that after working 8 hours in front of a computer my will to blog after work is lackluster. Another possible reason that I have not been writing as much is that my days tend to be rather long. I wake up at 5:00am and begin getting ready for work, leave for the train at 6:30am, catch the train at 7:00am, arrive at work at 7:50am, work 8 hours, leave work at 4:30pm, catch the train at 4:35pm and arrive back at my house at 5:30-6:00pm.
So as you can imagine the commute really takes a toll on me and when I get home my thoughts are the gym and dinner. And for those who will inevitably ask the answer is no, I will not be attending the inauguration festivities. I will actually be in Greensburg from the 16th - 20th. Maybe you will see me there.
Ps. I hope to write a more detailed review of the past three months sooner rather than later.
