I swear I had it running through my head when I was getting on the train for my first day of work on Tuesday.
I know - LOSER!
The good news is: so far, my new job is great!
I have my VERY OWN office (a first for me). I enjoy riding the train to work and dressing professionally for once. I really like getting off work at 5, instead of 6pm like I used too. The work seems like it will be fun and a new challenge for me, which I'll enjoy. And I LOVE the main woman I work with, she is just about the nicest person EVER which is helpful.
Actually everyone has been pretty nice so far. It helps that I know a lot of people in one of the departments because of J.
I may have forgotten to mention that I work with Jeremy now. We are not in the same department, but I will be doing a lot of work for his department which is fun and weird all at the same time. Sometimes I think it's a little too close-for-comfort, me doing work for his colleagues, but I think it will be OK.
I think my biggest obstacle will be figuring out how a university works. I am coming from an advertising/marketing agency, so working at a university is a huge change. I am completely clueless to how things run, especially since I didn't even attend a university, I went to a small art school-totally different.
But once I am there for a bit, learn all of the 50 million people's names that I have been introduced to and their titles, I think I will be OK. I'm really looking forward to it.
One of the best things about my job is that today I got my very own, fully-loaded MacbookPro! It's shiny and new and filled with ALL BRAND NEW PROGRAMS including Adobe CS3!!! WOO-HOO! At my last job I would have had to wait 6 months for this. At this job I waited a day and a half and was apologized to for the wait. Talk about culture shock. I think I can get used to this.
However, the one thing that sucks about the job, or any job for that matter, is finding the time to run. Because I have to take the train, I have to leave the house about 50 minutes before I have to be there. Which means to run in the am, I have to start running a little before six. HAHAHAHHAHAHAH!!! Right. I only do that crap on Saturdays.
There is also the problem of the weather. I know I have been going on about how awesome the temperatures have been, but this past week, my inner-Floridian wimp has reared it's ugly head. It's effing cold out there! AND WINDYYYYYYY!!!! It's going to be in the THIRTIES tonight!!! (I can hear you Canadians laughing at me from here) Except it's not funny. I just don't know if I can wake up and get outside when it's that cold out. Especially since J REFUSES to turn on the heat. So it's actually cold in our room too. Sigh.
At night it's too dark already. I wouldn't have a problem with this except there are no neighborhoods to run in here that aren't EXTREME hills. We normally run on a bike path which goes through the woods and I refuse to do that in the dark. Hellllllooo Blair Witch!
So what do I do people? I have Mondays off so I can do one run then. I also have Fridays off, but we do long runs on Saturday mornings so I usually don't like to run the day before. I may just have to suck it up and do a treadmill run when I get home at night one day a week. Grrrr...
What is up with Blogger tonight? I have been trying to post comments on a lot of your posts, but for some reason when I click on Post a Comment, it just moves your comment stuff around. Stoopid blogger.
