I really should have had Jordan take a picture of me on my first day of work…but alas, you’ll have to just picture it in your head.
Anyway, my first day went well. I managed NOT to be late despite the fact that the busses were not running on time and to my excitement, I was not the only one starting today, so I wasn’t the only clueless one. ‘Twas nice.
On my desk there was a “Welcome Kristen” sign, chocolates, a coffee cup and all the appropriate office supplies. Well, all except post-it notes, but by the end of the day, I had three sizes of them. My computer was all set up for me, my email worked and my chair is actually comfortable. I have never had it so good! I have my own little closet with drawers and shelves so that I can keep my stuff right there...and I got free lunch today as well.
All in all, it was a great first day. Of course, I haven’t done much “real” work yet and now have a LOT to read and lots of names to remember, but I think I made the right decision and I’m excited about working there.
Let’s see how long it takes till the shininess wears off.
