Yesterday was my first day at my new job. Honestly, it was only the orientation to loosely get to get to know the company and a few new co-workers that are starting the same day as me. It was not too exciting and was just a lot of talking. It took five hours of listening to the HR manager, getting our equipment, and finding out the person that was “supposed” to be my manager resigned on Friday. It was shocking news to find out the lady I interviewed and told me how much she loved the company and her job left. I am not sure if that is a good sign, but it does not seem like it.
I think I was more nervous about the drive to where the orientation was being held rather than I was about starting the job. The interstate I had to drive on always has a lot of road construction and standstill traffic, which alone makes no sense. There was one point when there was not any construction or an accident and traffic suddenly stopped. Come to find out traffic stopped because there was a car on the side of the road broken down, so people had to stop and look. I just do not understand!
Even though orientation seemed slightly disorganized, I am trying to keep an open mind. Typically the first day at a new job seems chaotic, so this is something expected. Looking on the bright side of things, I am working again and it is from home, which is what I wanted. For the next three weeks, I am going to be in training, so I hope training is thorough and clear. I know to ask a lot of questions and take notes, so I know what I am doing once training is over.
Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week is going well and you are feeling the best you can. For some reason, last night my pain levels were extremely high and I know it had nothing to do with the new job because it was something a little more personal. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
