Day one...

Even though my day started MUCH earlier than I would have liked, I am happy to say that my first day of work went really well. They've officially hired me now, so I guess I must have done something right :) The morning felt like a bit of 'information overload,' but by the afternoon, I was feeling much more confident in my new role and am optimistic that this will be a great job. The girl who is training me (and who I'll be filling in for) is really nice and was extremely patient with me as I asked a million and one questions. She'll be going on mat leave eventually but we'll be working together for at least another month or so. She's only a year and half older than me and got married the week before me--- we've discovered we have quite a bit in common so I think working together will be just fine. Other than her, its ALL men in the work place. Should be a piece of cake :) I'm glad I made it through the first day and was able to come away feeling good about everything. And now its time for me to get to bed. I'm going to need my beauty sleep now that my mornings will be starting almost an hour and a half earlier than they used to! Sweet dreams everyone...

That's funny Bonnie. We just hired a girl to take over for another girl that's going on maternity leave. She starts on the 25th. It's like you're living in my exact world. Except in Canada and one week earlier. Warn me of anything I need to know... Can you give me any hot stock tips?

Congratulations on finding a new job in which you can still use some of your design knowledge! I've been reading your posts off and on and this sounds like a real answer to prayer! Hope that the job goes well and that you can make a new friend out of it!

HOORAY!!! SO happy to hear that you found a great job! I think you work at the same place as a friend of mine. He works in the computer design area.
