First Day

So, my first day at the new job was yesterday. I hate first days. They're filled with weird tension and uncertainty. But, having said that, things seemed to go well and I don't anticipate any problems settling into this new gig. It's just a matter of time to get to know my coworkers, my sources and the communities I'm covering. Everyone I've met so far seems nice and collegial.

I took a break at lunch and went to a little antique store near the office for some quick browsing. I bought a little handmade plate, very '70s, to ornament my desk. So I'm settling in!

I'll be glad when the paychecks start arriving.

I'm glad your first day went ok. Waiting for the first paycheck is the hardest part :)

Congrats on the civil union, the move, and the new job, and I'm so sorry to hear about Ruby's woes. Lots has happened since I abandoned the blogosphere for my new job last year -- I'm so pleased to hear that, in your case, most of the changes have been positive ones!

My congratulations on your first day. If you need sources, I know stuff about certain people.
