First Day

First days of a new job are exciting and boring at the same time. First day is pretty much rules and regulations. Meet and greet with people who you won’t really remember until you need their help. Of course HR which means binders of papers about policy and benefits. The one I can about most is when am I going to get paid and how can I set up direct deposit.

Like I stated before, I haven’t worked a full-time job in 3 years. I totally under-estimate how much time and energy is expended from working a full-time job. This is my schedule for this week.

10:15PM-10:50PM Winding down for the day

10:50PM-5:15AM SLEEP (it was a long day)

I went from working 25-30 hours to work full 40 hours a week. This week is training week so that is why I have early hours. Next week I will change to my regular schedule hours which I am looking forward to not waking up so darn early.

Moral of the story:

Be careful what you wish for you just might get it. I have wanted to find a full-time job and now that I have it, I have to get use to that schedule.
