MY BLOG TURNS ONE TODAY! Yes, my dear, loyal readers (all 3 of you), I started my blog 365 days ago. My post then was not really anything earth-shattering – I was simply doing a dry-run to see if my post would work. My only comment then was from Sareet – who I owe a debt of gratitude to, since she was one of the catalysts who prompted me to blog in the first place. By the way, that first post did work. And for a year, it’s been working just fine. Let me take this time to thank everyone who has stopped by, read, commented on, and appreciated my posts. THANKS A LOT EVERYONE!
Incidentally,today was also my first day at work. It was a very typical first day. Started with an hour long orientation, LOTS of paperwork and forms to fill out, got my grand tour, met a lot of people, read the employee handbook, skimmed manuals, got my email/voice mail set up, got my parking pass, and my employee badge. Pretty standard stuff.
The people at work all seem very nice and I am pretty excited to be working in a more “corporate” set up again. Was assigned a pretty central work space, plus I got brand new office supplies (which I love). Have a pretty big “assignment” coming up and I have yet to really figure it out. To top it off, I’m still reeling from all the information I received today and have to learn a bunch of stuff too. It’s certainly been an exciting day, to say the least.
But the real highlights are:
- Leaving home at 8:05 and getting to work at 8:15 am.
- Lunch provided by the company (not just today, but every day - and not just one choice a day, but three!).
- Leaving work at 5:40 and getting home before 6 pm.
Once again, it’s really the little things that make me happy :)
