Today was my first day at my new job and I know you're all at the edge of your seats waiting to find out how it went. (And if you aren't I don't care, you're going to hear about it anyway).
Honestly? It was fantastic! My brain hurts from the amount of stuff I'm going to have to learn, but finally I have a nice, quiet desk job. My days of customer service related hell are over. It's going to take some time to master the various tasks I'll be responsible for, but once I do I think this new job is going to be exactly what I'm looking for. That might sound inconsequential to you, but having worked three previous jobs that I couldn't stand, I have to tell you that it's not. It's HUGE.
My favourite highlight of the day? The company I'm working for is adding on some extra office space and when they're finished I'll have my own office! I'm so excited! I've never had a desk job before and I was already so delighted that I'd have a work space to call my own, a desk I could decorate with pictures and what not. And now, I'll have my very own office! I can't tell you what that means to a hermit like myself!
In conclusion, my first day was great. Everyone was super nice, the work is challenging but definitely doable and - knock on wood - I think this is a job I could stick with and enjoy for a long time. Hooray!
