Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Learning

I started my job this week. I sort of want to bang my head into the desk. One high point was this afternoon when the HR lady was giving my "class" the schpeel on sexual harassment and while discussing dating in the workplace she said "get it where you can." Ha. I miss my internship style job already where I made my own schedule and didn't get a tardy if I was late. That's their word, not mine. There's no parking (ok, there's parking but there are also hundreds of employees) so if you leave for lunch it takes 5+ minutes to find a spot somewhere. It might be easier if we got to pick our own lunch time to avoid the peak times, but that is apparently never an option. It doesn't make sense to me, but I guess I'm new and don't see the big picture yet. Sigh...so now I'm going to bed so I can get up and do it all over again. Don't get me wrong - I appreciate having a job. I'm just not used to this being chained to a desk stuff.

that stinks - maybe it's all a really bad joke and at the end of training they will be like "got ya - wow wouldn't it suck if we were really like that"

Just keep telling yourself it's temporary--you definitely won't be there forever. And, once you're out of training and actually getting to talk to people, it will probably feel more productive.

be grateful that it doesn't take you 30 minutes to look for a spot. i definitely have had to do that on more than one occasion.
