Welcome To The Cube

My new domain.

Today is the first day of my new jorb. After several months of unemployment free time, I entered the work force today. Welcome to the 9 to 5. Or rather, the 7:30 to 4:30, although I got to start my first day at 8:30 a.m. Not an easy thing for a person who's kept up "artist's hours" for over a year and a half.

Last month I accepted a job offer as a "Grants Research Analyst" at a company in Pasadena called eCivis. If you really do need to know more about what I do, just email me, as I really don't want this blog to be about *work* per se insomuch as it's about the work experience. Got it? Besides, if I start, say, griping about my job on his blog, I can potentially get into some deep doux doux.

The view from my window:
The structure on the left is the Gold Line Sierra Madre
Villa Station Park N Ride.

The cool thing about my job so far? I work just yards from the Metro Gold Line's Sierra Madre Villa station. Though I drove to work on my first day, I look forward to taking the Red and Gold lines there... from Vermont Santa Monica (VSM) to Sierra Madre Villa (SMV). From East Hollywood to East Pasadena. How bout that?

Construction Time Again

A large construction crane raises a likewise large concrete panel into place at the new L.A. City College athletic field/parking structure. The structure is slated to open just in time for the opening of the LACC Fall semester, the athletic field a number of weeks following that.
