New Job

Akron OH, originally uploaded by Petie_in_Cbus.

So I started the new job today. If felt like I was going to the first day of school. The night before I ironed my clothes, cleaned up my shoes, packed my purse, book bag and lunch, made sure my car was in working order. Couldn't sleep until after I showered at 4:30. Luckily JG got up at 7 to rustle me out of the pile of crafts I was curled up in. Dryed my hair, did my makeup, ate breakfast slowly. I was tempted to ask JG to take my picture in front of the house before I left.
Growing up my parents would take Craig and my's picture on the first day of school in front of our house (dang, I wish I had some of those to post right now). When I moved to Columbus for my first REAL JOB, I had to stay in the In Town Suites on Bethel and Sawmill in Dublin for a few weeks, and I have a picture of me in the room that first morning. Too funny.
Then when I walked in the building it smelled like a freshly cleaned school and I was nervous as all get-out. Everyone was really nice, my cube is pretty huge and I got a comfy chair. I nervously made corny jokes and performed technical reviews on Columbian Phase 1 Environmental Assessment translations. Not exactly engineering yet, but much more than I thought that I'd do on my first day.
Got a much appreciated call from my dad and then Amy helped me cut fabric for a quick bit and I continued working in the PT sweatshop listening to Andrew Bird and Girl Talk.

  1. Awwwwwwwwwwwww new job! You should learn lessons from my blog!

    I'm glad it went pretty well. I'm also glad to hear that you still sleep in the Petie-nest of crafts.

  2. Lessons from your blog- How to become an anarcho-rat?

    Since JG chooses cats over me, I have reverted to the old ways of nest-style sleeping.
