Day One

The first day went okay. By the end of the day, though, I was very overwhelmed and mentally tired. I have SO MUCH to learn, and I hate being the one who doesn't know anything. I'm used to being the expert at my job, and now I'm like a little baby who has to learn everything because it's all new and who poops her pants. By the way, a tip for all of you: pooping your pants on the first day = not a great first impression. You're welcome.

While I was unpacking boxes and putting my desk together, I brought out my Big Mouth Billy Bass and asked one of my new coworkers if he was ready for me. Later on this same coworker saw me wearing 3 napkins as a bib while I ate lunch. Project Build Reputation At New Job As A Complete Dork is coming along nicely.

One more thing about my new job: jeans on Fridays. I will make out with jeans on Fridays right now.

P.S. This will be the best show ever.

I remember the days of not knowing anything at all about what I was supposed to be doing or jack about guitars. Now I know entirely too much.

Give it time grasshopper, soon you will be swimming in useless knowledge as it relates to your new job.

Jeans on Friday rock! I'm lucky that I can wear jeans anytime I want. Or sweatpants. (Like I wore yesterday).

I'm a little confused about 'are you ready for me'. What exactly were you planning on doing with that fish?

I love me some dress down days! It's that one day you dont have to iron a damn thing. Of course, I never iron, and only said that to pretend to be professional. I wear my shit wrinkly. I put a whole new spin on business casual!
Good luck with the new job! its hard to start over, but before you know it, people will be bowing to your greatness!

Glad to hear you didn't spontaneously combust on the first day of the new job.

And I'm jealous of the jeans day. My boss has some huge hangup about us wearing work.

I wear jeans every day, but poop my pants on Fridays only.
