Hi guys (and gals!)! We’ve been getting emails over the last month or so asking what we’ve been up to since we cut back our writing schedule. Now that life has calmed down (a little), we thought we’d share just what it is that’s filling our time these days.
Before we get into that, we wanted to thank you for your patience and understanding with our recent transition. As always, we appreciate your support, and your readership! Thank you for taking the time to read and comment, and send in tips, they are always appreciated!
Aside from mourning over the Cubs losing, here’s what we’ve been up to. At the end of August, Ryan accepted a position as a “Deployment Specialist” with a Chicago-based company. The organization is located in the “Chicago Loop” (for those of you unfamiliar, it’s just the name for the business district in the City). This meant we either had to move closer to the city to reduce commute time, or relocate to the city. We’re not really city dwellers so we packed up and moved about an hour Southeast of where we were living to a Western suburb of Chicago. Ryan takes the train into the city everyday and is enjoying his job of managing and deploying websites.
As for myself, I accepted a position as a Teacher/Technology Integration Specialist at an elementary school in the area. I teach 5th grade math, kindergarten-4th grade computer classes, and I manage the school website and help teachers integrate technology into their classrooms. So far I am loving the job because it combines two things I am passionate about, teaching and technology.
We do have to say that it has been quite the adjustment to take a few steps back from CyberNet, and we do miss it! We haven’t had nearly as much interaction with our readers lately which is one of the things we enjoy most. To help with the interaction, we’ve got a question for you. Even if you’ve never commented before, feel free to answer!
Now we’d like to turn and ask you guys what you’ve been up to! In the past, we haven’t really asked what you do during the day, so feel free to let us know what profession you’re in and even the name of the company, if you’d like! If you’re a student, tell us what you are studying and where.
