Day three at work and what a great, super wonderful day! I knew that things would be a different vibe going from the restuarant where everything was all social and glib to a professional, government office where everyday the work we do affects the lives on MILLIONS of people- serious, life changing work. But I also knew that I would eventually be allowed, and even welcomed, to come out of my appropriate and dainty shell and be me. Today felt like the beginning of that movement.
I got to do “real” work, recording for meetings which is like taking hard core notes in school from a professor who doesn’t care what you do or don’t know- that’s your problem. But I was allowed to do my recording after the first meeting and felt like I actually contributed to the success of the meeting’s development, albeit if in a small role. I impressed my boss by not only being SUPER efficient, but by being super organized as well- too traits I LIVE by. Today passed by so quickly, and I felt like the hours flew by with me being engaged and active all day. I could stand a little more exercise, I can almost feel my booty expanding as I sit down all day, but I did eat lunch WITH someone today, and had a nice bonding session with the most engaging, louder than life co-worker who, incidentally, had peppermint oreos on her desk. Ohhhhhh….those were goooooood cookies. Dang.
So, halfway through my first week and I’m feeling so good. Wow, what a change from a few months ago. I miss the social aspect of the restuarant, for sure, I miss goofing off and being silly, but I also feel that this change is where I WANT to be. Hello world, it’s me knocking on your door. 🙂
