The First Two Days

What a whirlwind the last couple days have been! I don’t think I’ve learned so much information in two days and have been to remember it all ever!

So far, I’m really catching onto the whole Classified Clerk position. Basically, I answer the phone, emails and tend to the counter and take people’s ads. Easy! The greatest part is I’ve yet to have the horrible nervous sweat that I usually get. I’m pretty glad for that, because that’s just awkward. Annnnnd I get my own freakin’ desk! Yeah, I had a desk at the other paper, but this one is filled with my stuff and no one goes through it. Huzzah! I feel like such a grown up.

The only weird thing is having an hour-long lunch break. I really had no idea what to do on Monday during my break other than eating lunch. I just sat there and read Facebook on my lame little LG Rumor. (Note to self: I really need a Blackberry when my contract is up) Yesterday I was smart and brought a book with me. This will only be for a week since I go part-time next week, but still … unreal!

Also, one of the photographers for the paper had to do a double-take when he saw me in the office yesterday. We always seemed to be in each other’s way (or maybe it was just me in his way) when I was at the other paper. It was slightly amusing.

So yes, that’s my first two days in a nutshell! It’s going really well and I’m so glad I made the decision to take the job offer.

Determination pays off :)

  1. I’m glad things are going well for you at your new job! I love having my own desk ~ I have my own cubicle and I spent many a lunch hour decorating!


  2. Haha. I love having my own desk, but there is a noodle thief about – I’m a big fan of tasty flavours like laksa, hot and spicy, oriental…and I can’t leave packs stashed on my desk because they just disappear!


    • That’s horrible! At my old job I had chocolate covered almonds in my desk and my boss would eat them on me. At she she admitted to it and replaced the bag for me, lol
