I Freaking <3 My New Job

i started my new job today. i sit in an office with a bunch of fellow nerds and write websites for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. i hate to say it, but I LOVE IT. i don’t want to disclose any names or other information because i would like to KEEP said job, so we will just call it my job.

i love the people i work with. i’ve already bonded with the 2 guys i share an office with (i think that happened mostly because i mentioned computer games but, hey, whatever works, right?) and the vice president and i (basically my go-to person) completely see eye-to-eye and seem to have the same easy-going, goofy, dorky personalities. she’s awesome. the 2 girls that are in the office next to ours are the photography/videography department and although they’re quiet, they have a subtle, dry humor that just kills me. they probably think i’m really weird because i sat in the office giggling to myself all day (we’re only separated by a giant sheet of glass, there are no real walls), but i’m okay with that.

i got an hour lunch break and drove back to the apartment to bug adam and tell him how much fun i was having. i sported my new ID swipe card clock in thingamajigger and i feel all official now.

i really don’t know how i got as lucky as i did. like my mom said, i kind of just fell into this job. i went searching on craigslist for summer internships because i was almost desperate to find a decent job when i came to live with adam. i did NOT want to end up at someplace like chili’s all over again. i applied to 4 or 5 job postings on craigslist and this one just happened to reply and told me to give them a call. and then i just… happened to have a job.

i was actually kind of scared up until today that this might just all be a big hoax. there was no interview or real phone conversation and the e-mails were so informal that i thought they were written by people who speak english as their second language. they just said to show up on the 12th… and i did… and i was pleasantly surprised with ONE of the most fun jobs i’ve ever had. tech. support will always hold the #1 spot, but this place feels like it might have a similar atmosphere. :grin: i’m so excited that i might go pick out my outfit for tomorrow.

    Just reading about your dog… you could try hooking his leash to your belt (or anything) so that he's never out of your sight. The minute he starts to sniff or look all ninja-y, take him outside, wait til he pees and give him a treat right after… rinse and repeat a million times til he gets it. I feel you, it's frustrating. For a dog that small he needs to pee on average every 15 minutes.
    Another thing I found helpful was writing down on a sheet of paper every time she went to the bathroom (either or) so I could anticipate it and take her outside around the right time the next day.
    I hope you don't have to sit in any more wet spots!
