I got to admit I am watching intently on this new Secretary of State sweepstakes that President-elect Trump is doing. I will be proud to serve whoever he appoints, but we all have our favorites right?
Otherwise things are moving along well. We have a Facebook group for our class, are starting to have happy hours, and are in communication with our welcoming committee.
I just had a great Thanksgiving break back in Pittsburgh and am looking forward to 3 weeks for Christmas and New Years between my current job and starting January 9th. Not having to move here for training is saving me a ton of work. While I will not get the free housing or per diem, I have little to worry about as I transition into the Department of State.
That is about it for now. Happy Holidays everyone. Look for more posts as things really start to heat up in the new year!
PS: I bet he picks Gov. Romney!
