Jetsettin'

So I have finally been hired - by an organization called ACORN. I will be doing community organizing for their new office here in Knoxville. However, first I have to go through about four months of training. I'm leaving tomorrow for Philadelphia for 3 days of training and then on to St. Louis for about 2.5 weeks (through election day). In St. Louis I will be helping with a voter registration drive since the minimum wage is on the ballot in Missouri and the congressional races are pretty close there. After my time there, I'll come back to Knoxville for a day or two and then I'll go to my real training somewhere else in the country for about 3 months. I may or may not have an additional month of training after that and then finally I'll be back in Knoxville to work.

Whew. I feel like these next few months are going to be exhausting.
