So yesterday was my first day on the job. It was a long day. I got up 2 hours before I started because my commute was 1.5 hours. Got to love L.A. Despite the fact I can live rent free with my Mom for the time being, I think it will be worth it to just go find a place. Will probably go look this weekend since next weekend I'm back to Seattle to go finish my move.
Not a lot out of the ordinary for the first day of work. Just your usual orientation stuff and introductions. Went to lots of meetings where I didn't know what anyone was talking about. Some people feel very uncomfortable in these types of situations. I don't. I find you can learn much faster if you just get in the middle of it and figure out how the team operates. I have been told I actually have to make some key decisions this week. It's a little early even for someone who can learn quickly like me, but hey, I'm up to the challenge.
Sorry this is not more of a substantive blog post. It's going to be a little light this week as I get my feet wet. I will still have a blog post every day and actually have some pretty good stuff planned going forward. I'm working some long hours this week, which goes against some of the things I believe in when it comes to work. More on that later.
