The First Day of School
Once you got to school, you saw your clique, the same ol' sames and even some new people. All day your teachers passed out syllabi, class rules-all the boring stuff that you immediately filed away in your folder never to be seen again. Meanwhile, you were thinking ahead. What is this year gonna be like? What will me and my friends get into this time? I hope I like my teachers. Blah, blah, blah...
Fast forward to adulthood. Ten to 15 years later, the only thing different is you don't live with the parental unit (or maybe not). The first day at the New Job. It's the same damn thing! Atleast it was for me. Yes, yes, yes, all info is changed on Facebook, Myspace, etc. It is official. Today was the first day. Not much to tell, except I think I'll really like the job and I'll keep busy, thank God. Today I accomplished the following things:
Arrived on time (before time)
Read and comprehended the employee handbook and company strategic plan
Managed to cross my eyes by working on the smallest notebook laptop in the universe
Met all my new co-workers, including the one I'll be working closely with
Caught a beat-down by The Hawk because he was out
Had my face cracked literally when I had to walk an intersection up to get to the parking garage (Did I mention The Hawk was out??)
Updated my course syllabus for the 2nd gig
Left work early
Seriously though, they didn't plan for me to really work on the first day. Who does that? I enjoyed it. Tomorrow I'll be quite busy. Gotta teach the community class in the evening. That's going to be interesting. Anyway, all is well here. Goodnight!
