Well, I had my first day today. It was peachy. I’m really excited about the position and this afternoon did not disappoint! I got to sit in on a very interesting meeting that was sort of a baptism-by-fire type situation and I LOVED it. Loved. It.
I realized sitting in the meeting that I felt like I had my life back. I like the job. I find it really interesting. And I am 12 minutes from home in rush-hour traffic (I timed it). And that is awesome to me.
Did I mention yet that I made myself dinner? And it involved boiling water – not just pouring milk into a bowl of dry cereal.
I am sure that there will be stressful days and situations. I am sure there will be late nights (guaranteed at least a few nights a monthwith some after-work hours meeting). But man, it sure is nice to see this side of 6 pm from my patio and not my desk.
