I’m sitting on a couch at work, my shoes off and my feet up… a cup of coffee steaming next to me, headphones on playing a compilation of some of my favorite songs… I may be here physically, but mentally, I’m in Aruba. Sitting on a beach, the waves crashing against the sand, a small breeze blowing over me. Sigh. Do I have to adult today? Why can’t I just be a cat instead? I’d like to lay about – snuggled in a blanket. 🙂
I’m on day 10 of the new job. I’m not entirely sure I made the right choice coming here, but I’m trying to keep an open mind. I’ve already had the unfortunate displeasure of discovering a few things about the business and how they’ve run things that I don’t agree with. I guess we’ll have to see how open they are to allowing me to change things. I had a meeting yesterday with some of the executives. I was nervous going into it, mainly because I haven’t had the chance to get a solid read on them yet. The folks who were a part of the meeting were awesome. Gave me hope that I can make a difference here. We’ll see how the rest of them are over time.
Tomorrow, I get to go with one of our customers and pretend to be a part of his business. The goal is to understand what a day in the life of our customers is really like and see if there are areas we can improve or be of more use. I’m excited about it. I love doing these kinds of research projects. I’ve got a list of about 100 questions that I hope i’ll get to ask – have to find ways to do it without sounding like I’m giving the 3rd degree. 🙂
This weekend, I get to hang out with my best girl friend. 🙂 I’m looking forward to it. The hours I’ve been working have taken a huge toll on my social life and it’s nice to know that I’m going to get a little break and get to sit and catch up on all the latest news and events within our social circle.
Well folks – better actually go do some work now. 🙂 Hehe. Hope you have a lovely day!! Much love to you.
