Me in the mornings... it's just so hard and unnatural... ugh! This was my first week at my new job aka waking up at the crack of dawn to catch a slightly unreliable bus each morning and man, was it killer! I guess it doesn't help that my body clock has been out of sync since I naturally tend to be a night owl aka I prefer to sleep in and the creative juices don't really start flowing till after 3pm anyways... and coffee... Me being nervous about rejoining the work force... I mean it's what I've been wanting for so long and that's probably the reason for all the anxiety and nerves... but the night before my first day, I couldn't sleep with all the butterflies swarming around in my tummy (and head) and just like the night before the first day of school, I barely slept but it was ok because the same nerves kept me going through day... until I finally crashed that night... still in my work outfit... Other than that, there was no other awkwardness this week... well aside from the minor flashback to my old attire from my middle school days thanks to festive Friday at work... yes it's true... I used to be gangsta in the 90's, dark lipstick and all... and all I can say is "what were you thinking letting me dress like that mom?!?"
Did I mention that I finally got a real job!!! This was my first week and I have to say it was pretty awesome (as well as a mixture of other emotions)... being part of a team... learning new things... having a routine... and probably the most important, getting to socialize with things other than my succulents... which I did buy one to have on my desk at work because I'm that employee that likes to really feel at home at work... other awesome things I already moved in include my personalized mug that my London bestie S made for me to hold all my creative tools... a drawer full of healthy snacks since I'm ALWAYS hungry... and an essentials cosmetic bag containing band aids, hand lotion, tampons, and lip gloss... I'm pretty sure I'll be bringing more stuff as the weeks go by but I wanted to ease in... not scare my new co-workers by bringing everything and the kitchen sink ya know! Oh and also pretty high on the list of awesomeness this week- sushi burgers (not pictured)... fire, out door bar b q, and a jam session that included a banjo (I know!) and me singing aloud (gasp!)... meeting the friendliest chihuahua ever (mine back home barks at EVERYTHING!)... daily Starbucks and no I'm not sorry... maple bacon donuts surprisingly delicious!).... and surviving my first work week which ended with a festive Friday theme of 90's gangsta as pictured above... I have a good feeling about this job!
***Today I am thankful for my job... I have job!!!***
