Movers and Shakers

A lot has happened since I posted yesterday morning.

The training schedule for my new job got moved up, and I will start training tomorrow (Monday, February 15th).

I am going to be working as a Front Desk Administrator at TechShop Pittsburgh!

I just had Adam take this picture, for fun, so you can see me looking happy with the TechShop sign.

TechShop is the same company where Adam works, and we both love it so much! We are extremely excited that I got this position.

I am really looking forward to working with the TechShop team and being a part of the TechShop community as a staff member, not just a shop member.

Adam is in a different department of TechShop as he is a consultant, and I will be involved in the administrative side of things.

Adam and I are both very happy, and we have even managed to get very similar schedules, so — for the first time in four+ years of work (here and there in Hong Kong and the USA) — we will have weekends off together (starting next weekend with the Oil Country Bluegrass Festival).

On a completely different topic, I went for a walk this morning and took some pictures of the gorgeous city of Pittsburgh.

This building is visible from our front windows. It is now called the Motor Square Garden, but it was originally built as a City Market by the Mellon Family (in 1898-1900).

As I mentioned the Motor Square Garden is visible from our front windows. The East Liberty Presbyterian Church is visible from our back porch. I took this picture from the second story of a raised shopping center located between our apartment and these buildings.

Adam has been creating some beautiful woodwork pieces lately, but I’ll wait to share them until he is finished. We also have some other project ideas that we are hoping to work on together, and we will unveil them as soon as possible.

I know that months ago I promised our readers a music video set to the tune of our semi-original song, “Baby Moo.” I am still hopeful that some day in the not-too-distant future, Adam and I will be able to get some kind of music video put together and uploaded. After all the work we put into recording and editing the “Baby Moo” sound file, the world deserves to hear it with visual accompaniment.
