First Day!

Today is my first day of work at the new job! There, I said it. I can't believe the past two weeks flew by so quickly, but I'm glad I had that time off. It's crazy to think of how nervous I was for my previous two real jobs.

My very first job out of college, I cried. I sat down at the kitchen table around 6:30AM and cried. "Who am I going to eat lunch with?" My mom laughed, but not in a cynical way, but in "this isn't the first day of school" way.  There I made some amazing friends, who are still some of my closest friends today, and that job was like a family. I cried a lot when I left.

My second job, I didn't cry, but I was definitely nervous. I was walking into a more corporate, or so I thought, world in an industry I knew nothing about. Saying goodbye to that company didn't bring as many tears, but I had to say "see you soon" to a girl who has become a best friend. We were like two peas in a pod in the office, and I miss her a lot already.

Today, I haven't cried. I didn't toss and turn in my sleep. I just feel more relaxed. I think it's because I keep pinching myself saying "is this real?" I'm giddy with excitement. I have my outfit picked out, and I can't wait to walk in that door to see some already very familiar faces.

Oh man, I don't think I'd have that lunch problem. I'm really bad for eating food in that I eat as I work.

So by the time it's lunch break my food is all gone. :(
