New Job


So, I got a new job. Brian’s office needed a new secretary/receptionist, and I applied and…tum ta da tum! They offered me the job. I’m hoping to keep my coffee shop job, just for Saturdays, because I think I’d just miss it too much otherwise.

I started the new job this past Wednesday. It’s going to take a little adjustment, since I have never worked a full-time 8-5 job. Halfway through the afternoon I get a little antsy. There’s no problem with staying busy, though. The receptionist stuff keeps me busy funnelling emails and phone calls, and there is plenty of secretary stuff to do too. I’ve decided if I’m ever not busy I’ll bring my knitting, but it doesn’t look like that will ever happen!

One thing I don’t like about it is that there is no flexibility – the nature of the job is that I need to be there just before eight, and leave at five, so there really isn’t that much wiggle room in there :u) To combat the feeling of never being at home, Brian and I are trying the get up at dawn strategy. We got up at 5 this morning (which was technically before dawn, as the sun is just rising now at 7). It feels good to have some home time before work.

I’ll let you all know how this all goes!

  1. How’s the new job going? It sounds like it’s a big change from your previous routine. I hope you like it!

  2. It’s going well. It is a big change though. So big it seems almost like a different life, long ago…A bit overwhelming, all the things I’m trying to learn and actually retain! I think I’ll enjoy it though – once I learn the ropes and wade through the pile of files that the former secretary left!
