    I've started my new job in a maelstrom of busy-bodiness I was starting to think might be ******* other people off. I've taken to being like the conductor in a mental piece of Shostakovich or even Schoenberg.  It's constantly frantic with people needing things to happen right...

    Wonderful news, I have a new job.

    It's been good so far, lots of time consuming activities should all pay off tho. As many may know finding a job is awfully hard now a days. Gladly after switching jobs two times I found this opurtunity that is great. It's only worth it if you are willing to change a lot about...

    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.

    First Week

    New job = New people to get to know and to obscure myself to. It's always a battle between congruence and denial, though so far so good.  Delays with my Police Check have ensured that I've been 'back room' so I've settled myself in Reception, with occasional shadowing of...

    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.

    Tomorrow is my first day of my new job.

    I already am super nervous. I know this is not a job I am going to be in for the rest of my life. This job though is like a big deal to my family and I don't want to ruin there expectations. I haven't even started and I'm doubting I'll even like the job.
