University of Pittsburgh Orientation

This morning I was so tired and didn’t want to get up. I slept so well. I was so nervous. When we were on the bus into Oakland, I didn’t want to get off. I wanted to stay with Drew or go back to bed. I felt like a little girl going to school.

When I stepped off the bus, Drew kissed me goodbye. He went to the Porch to get coffee and I went to Craig Hall to report to Orientation. On my way I called my mom and she gave her best to me.

When I walked into Craig Hall, I becked in and showed them my offer letter. They told me to take a seat they would send people up soon, so I changed my shoes while I waited. Maureen asked me what department I was going to be working in and I said Social Sciences. One of the girls in the lobby said, oh are you Danielle? I said Yes and smiled. She said, we are in the same department. She introduced herself and I was happy to see someone in my department. Her name is Nicollette.

She and I took the elevator up to the conference room, our name tags and information were next to one, another so we took a seat next to each other and we talked for a bit about our temp assignments prior to being offered our full time positions. She seems really nice and chill.

While we were waiting for the presentation to start, I asked the orientation representative, about my time card since I worked on Sunday, and I am being switched over to full time. She told me to email Kristen, and ask her. I wrote up an email and CCed the chapel director and Kristen was able to take care of it behind the scenes for me, but I won’t be switched over in the system until August 4th. It’s never easy. I will still be paid though.

We just finished up lunch and we are going over benefits. I feel like I have to write this because I have been on Andrew’s since we got engaged, so no need to worry about this segment.

After benefits, they are going to t to us about Parking and then we are dismissed. Nicollete and I are going to Panther Central together, then to Heinz Chapel to drop off my keys then to Posvar to meet with Linda, then it will be time to go home!
