Today starts my 2nd week of work at MZT... and it's been crazy busy, but a lot of fun. It's the kind of busy I like, the kind where I get to do what I LOVE to do all day long and the next thing I know, it's past time to go home.
Like whiskers on kittens... (what am I talking about, I can't stand cats)... but, these are a few of my favorite things... WORK things... from the first 2 weeks.
1.) I wore a denim skirt and a white button-up and I got SO much attention, the receptionist said "frou frou, look at you, hot mama!" Ha ha ha... In my head I was thinking: It's denim people, don't let the little ruffle throw you off, it's still denim.
2.) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lady I work with. Jackie is delightful. She's so much fun! And, very sweet and helpful. She makes me laugh. And, she reminds me of my BFF Cori, who lives far far away in Hawaii, so that's an added bonus.
3.) So far I have been called the following: "kiddo", "pretty", "really smart", "willowy", and "bony"... there's nothing like a new job to make a girl feel young, hot, smart and thin. (Mind you, I have not let this go to my head, I haven't been able to see my bones since high school and the only way I know they are there is that they crack when I get out of my chair, which I would say means I am OLD!)
4.) It's so close to my house... I still can't get used to this. I have literally driven past my exit 3x... yikes.
5.) I am not used to getting up and to work so early... and one day I totally forgot to wear make-up... how does that happen?!? Anyway, no one asked me if I was ill... which is rad! And, so I liked that. But, let's hope that doesn't happen again.
6.) I got a space heater... it's divine! D-I-V-I-N-E! Plus, it keeps people out of my office OR sweating profusely, which is also fun!
7.) I am getting used to playing name-that-smell at "La Chiquita Market" (so far it vacillates between pee, fish, body odor and curry, so that's nice.) But, it's the only place I can go to where I don't have to get in my car to get a drink. I am also getting used to drinking FAR less diet coke, so my mom should like that!
8.) Since, I was so busy last week I forgot to eat lunch twice... you'd think I was getting thinner, but I am not!
9.) My computer has a 21" (I think) screen. Anyway, it's HUGE and I love it! If I had any free time, I'd bring in a movie and some popcorn! Plus, I got a new laptop, which is surprisingly light!
10.) No one has even attempted to get me drunk yet! Nice!
11.) There's a guy here named Thurman Rock... isn't that cool!?!
12.) I am getting really used to hearing "his resume is not great on paper". It makes me laugh, and it's more of a challenge... which is what I wanted, right?
I am pretty sure I am going to like it here!
(Side note, sorry mom and dad... the week(s)-in-review blog is coming soon... I have been too busy with my life to blog about it... but, I know you need an update... it's coming, I promise!)
