First Day Jitters turned to First Day Cheers!! =)
You read that title correctly!! I had the BEST FIRST DAY EVER!!! I was a bundle of nerves, and that's an understatement. I was so nervous I woke up at 6am for an 8:30 job. lol. I dropped every compact of make-up I owned because my fingers just were giving out on me. I straightened my hair, put on my business pants, and tried to take that sigh of relief that Monday was here at last & feel the relief that I had a job to go to this morning. BUT did you guys know that the sun isn't even up at 6am?? It made me feel all over the place & I think I had too much coffee because I was like the Looney Tunes roadrunner to finish getting ready. Eventually I pulled myself together.
Now I had no idea what the traffic would be like on the Garden State Pkwy at 8 in the morning so I left at 7:30am from my place. I got to the job in less than 30 minutes...I'm happy I brought a book. Reading a book and listening to my ipod finally made me chill out a bit thankfully. The rest of the day...was out of a dream.
I got shown my cubicle and they started me off right away. It's different to be working with women. Men are from Mars and oh boy Women are from Venus. But they took me under the wing, sat me down with the lady that will be training me and started spurting off information. I tried to be a sponge. I was asking questions, writing down notes, meeting my new co-workers and was grinning like a schoolgirl. This is what I wanted. What I needed.
Just Breathe... The possibilities at this new place is making me drunk with dreams. I am the new marketing analyst checking out data for newspaper alliances and half through the day they switch their words to "You will be doing this" instead of the "This is what we do". It was music to my ears. Sweet music.
From getting up tho at 6am and coming down from this happiness high I need to go to bed. Forgive me if I'm a lil delayed in visiting your precious blogs...I will be back to my norm when I get used to juggling everything!! =) I hope tomorrow will be just as good as today!! =)
