The first week
It's 2:45pm. I'm at work. Yes, I am blogging. Why? you ask. Well, it's something to keep my mind occupied and right now there is nothing.to.do. I've been through the job website, I've filed the papers that I could, I've read the magazines and organized the folders I have. I've called the people I'm supposed to call, sent the emails I needed to send. I answer the phone on the 2nd ring (don't want to appear to eager) and have researched all the things that I can research for now. I know that in a month or two things will pick up. Heck, tomorrow things could pick up, but right now, it's pretty-kinda-sorta quiet.
It's only been three days. I can already tell you that I like the two office coordinators, they have been awesome, that there is a gentleman who eats his lunch precisely at 12:30pm everyday, at the same table. Maybe tomorrow I will get his name. I can tell you that the chair I'm using right now is awful...I definitely need to get another one. I can also tell you that I'm not so much a fan of the amount of gas it's taking to get from home to here and back. The bus/light rail and an extra 1 1/2 hours each way of commute is looking better and better.
I'm starting to slowly add things to the office that will make it mine but also theirs at the same time. Tomorrow I'm going to bring a picture in...this one on this post, actually. There isn't a window in this 133 sq. ft. office, so I need something to "look out". The beach is good. :) I added my picture cube today, along with my Louisiana pencil...it has an alligator on it. I can be business, but fun is always lurking beneath the surface.
Tomorrow the computer arrives, along with the printer. And hopefully more work will follow. Until them, I'll just be grateful for a new job...and I am.
