So my first day is over. I was a bit quieter/shy than I expected to be but the environment is so different than from what I am coming from so it was a lot to take in. I was excited to be there, but I was completely overwhelmed and needed to just listen and take it all in. Now that I know what to expect, Today will be a better day.
I'm not really going to talk too much about my job yet. I'll do that when I get more in to it and am more confident a.k.a actually knowing what the hell I am doing. lol.. And I am sure I will create a scrapbook page or two about it -- You know me I scrapbook everything, so I'll let you know in due time! The biggest things I have to get used to are the environment - it's so different (in a good way) and the fact that I am trusted and thought of as competent enough to make a choice.
Where I am coming from, choices weren't yours. Even though I had access to certain systems I was always questioned as to what my motives were and why I was accessing them, not only me, but everyone else that didn't have the title "manager"….Um…to find You people? This is my job, right? There was a lot of fear and a lot of micromanaging. Not even that, there were just a lot of different things.
I could sit here and tell you stories but most of them are so off the wall they are unbelievable. You kind of had to work there to understand. Most people didn't last long, because it was just so weird. Most people thought I was crazy for staying there for as long as I did but I take it in stride. I have learned so much both work wise and personally. I think if I can work there, I can work anywhere. I've also met a lot of great people who have certainly impacted my life on some kind of level. I wouldn't change it for anything.
I don't have much to share today other than a few ramblings but here is a peek at the album I am working on.
I hope you all have a great Wednesday!
