...it's off to work I go!
So I just got back from my first day at my new job, and I had such a great time! Granted, I'm not doing anything very exciting yet... I don't have access to the database just yet, so I'm spending my time sorting and filing the mountain of paperwork that has accrued since my position has been empty.
But all the people I met today were so nice, so positive and cheerful. Even the few clients I dealt with today were fairly pleasant.
One of the best things I learned today is that my boss is older than me! I thought that, for the first time in my life, I was going to have a boss who was younger than me... but we were talking about birthday cards, and I said that since my last birthday was my 40th, all of my birthday cards were of the teasing variety... to which she responded that her fortieth, last year, was the same. She doesn't look a day over thirty, so I was rather surprised.
Anyway, more news as it becomes available; right now, I need to take a short nap. After three and a half months of not working, my body isn't used to this eight-hours-at-a-time bullshit anymore, and it's going to take some adjustment.
