Man, today was a VERY busy day!
First off, the traffic is pretty horrendous, especially since I have to drive by the local university. Ay caramba!
I think I'm going to leave an hour before work, tomorrow. Luckily, we have a parking garage so parking isn't a nightmare.
I was with my trainer all day, learning the ins and outs of my job. Luckily, I'm surrounded by nice people so I'll feel comfortable asking for help. I like that everyone enjoys working there, that really helps make me feel more at ease with learning this new job. I met 95% of everyone on our floor (there's 2.5 floors that belong to our firm), it was a bit overwhelming. Today, I think I've come to realize, that with a name like mine, I do not have the luxury of being shy. Out of all the people I met today, I think I can remember about 30% of their names. I don't think I've gone into what it's like meeting people for the first time, with a name like mine. I'll go more into that, tomorrow.
My trainer said that I did really well, for my first day. I like hearing that! My cubicle neighbor said that on his first day, he went straight home and fell asleep until the next morning. When I heard that at 10am this morning, I thought it was a bit much. As 5pm rolled around, it sounded like the best idea ever! So far, I like my job and I don't feel overwhelmed, but we'll see what tomorrow brings.
I wish I had a picture of my cubicle, but it's a lil boring right now since I'm barely movin' into the space. For now, here's a picture of the break room. I love love love how there's fresh fruit available for the taking, that's really terrific! I like how well-stocked this break room is, especially since there's an ice machine and drinking water! Juuuuust perfect! All in all, I think I'm going to definitely like working here. I just feel so incredibly lucky that I landed this job!! I definitely have counted my lucky stars and thanked my Heavenly Father. My cup runneth o'er!
