First Day On The Job

Today is the first day of school for many kids in my hometown. How coincidental is it that today is also my first day on my new job?!

Much like the first day of school, I'll be going into a brand new environment where I'll have to learn a whole new set of coworkers, in a whole new city! I'll have a whole new curriculum to take up...as the laws, rules, and regulations are different for each state...and I'll have to navigate to and from work on my own!! Let's just admit it...I'm nervous!

I've never liked the first days (or weeks, for that matter) of school. I don't like introductory phases. I'm ready to be in the midst of everything. I'm ready to be as knowledgeable as I was on my last job. I don't like being the new kid on the block. Everybody wants to ask you a million questions about who you are and what you've done. Everybody wants to get to know you...or it could be the complete opposite! Because you're the new kid, you don't exactly fit into the setting the already-established workers have. Either way, I know this will all work out with time.

I wanted to etch this day in stone on my blog with this post, so when that day comes I can look back at this and say "I really had nothing to worry about!". So far the transition has been just that...a transition. I don't really feel like this is my home just yet...but I'm sure that's something that will come with time too!

Wish me luck.

  2. I totally know how you feel with starting new jobs and the first day of school. It's not that I don't like to meet new people, but I really want to get settled into my job, and just get to work! Unfortunately, it's all a part of the process!

    I know that you will be excellent in your new job, and I'm praying for God to continually give you favor on your job and with the people you meet at work and in the city! So excited for you!
