    My new job starts tomorrow,

    I'm excited, very happy for the new opportunity and worried a little, I don't know if I have what it takes to be there (I hope I do) . Anyway, it's a great chance, lot of pressure but, any chance could be ignored, they just arrive once.

    that I spilled something and there was an argument between two co workers, but that's none of my business. accidents happen and nobody slipped and got injured. I'm so tired though.
