Well, it's Humpday. I haven't had to worry about that in over a year, but now I remember what it is like!
The job is a bit overwhelming, as all new jobs are, I suppose. Lots of people to meet, offices to locate. Software to learn. Procedures to get down. The hospital's campus is pretty big, so it will take me awhile to figure out, I think. I spent most of today wrestling with a dictation machine--who knew that people still dictate into micro-cassettes anymore?! My boss does, and typing up the letters is one of my jobs. The machine has little foot pedals for rewind and stuff, which cause my legs to cramp up. Everyone is nice and helpful, though I don't know all their names yet.
My commute isn't too bad--Patrick drops me off at the train in the morning, I take it to my stop (about 30 minutes), and then take a bus to the front door of my office (usually 10 minutes, including waiting around for the bus). On the way home I don't bother with the bus--I just walk the mile to the train. Then take the train home, then a bus to the bottom of my street, and then walk up my hill. Actually, now that I've typed it out it sounds like a major pain. I predict that it will get old fast.
