So, Mike and I have officially started our new jobs. Everything is going pretty well, but, like always, it is difficult at first. My first day I was shown to my new work area, which I must say...it a lot nicer than my last 4 by 5 ft cubicle. This one has actual walls with paint! Very exciting.
So, I get to my desk and am handed a huge Dell box with a "I hear you are tech-saavy. Go ahead and set this all up and get connected to the networks. Oh, if you need help...you can call me, but I hear you are good at this sort of thing." What? As everyone in my family would tell you, I am the most anti-tech-saavy person ever, but when you have a new job you have to live and exceed everyone's expectations. So, tech-saavy it is. I dug to the bottom of the box and I found this tiny little laptop. Seriously, I thought, "How in the heck am I going to use this computer screen for 8 hours a day. I can't even see the screen, none the less even fit my fingers on the keyboard to type!" After freaking out all day, I found out that I also had an external monitor...so it was okay, whew, disaster avoided.
All and all, the job is going well. Mike is learning a lot and golfing a lot :) Although jobs are going well, I've noticed some other things lacking. I have been really bad at cooking...so bad in fact, that I don't think I've cooked more than 2 meals since I moved a month ago. The picture below says it all. I seriously was eating a plain waffle when Mike snapped a picture with the camera.
On another note, I'm the new sunbeam teacher. That'll be an adventure.
