Being the new girl is always the hardest part, right?
When someone says, “in a couple of weeks this will all seem so easy…” I don’t care for that statement… it rubs me the wrong way. I’m sensitive like that. I KNOW that it will all seem easier when I know people’s names and have new acronyms down and all of that… but don’t discount my need to learn now please… and thank you.
I HATE being the new girl. I’m terrible at it, actually…
It’s not because I like to know everything (though it would be nice to be REAL smart like that) it’s just because I don’t like looking like an idiot :).
I am spending some time this week getting up to speed. Reading A LOT. Getting to know my new, globally diverse team.
We spend a lot of time on video conference. Video conference at 7AM = me waking at 6:15, procrastinating, putting on yoga pants and a dress shirt (work on top, party on the bottom – it’s like a work mullet!) and pretending that my hair looks totally appropriate for a work call.
Change is good. I wanted this. I am excited albeit
a tad overwhelmed.
Cohen is thoroughly confused on why he is hanging out in the office all day and why I walked him on a Tuesday when his friends from Bark Place usually do it. I think he’s pretty happy though, so I’m not too worried about his confusion. If his confusion could stop waking him up at 5AM, that would also be nice.
I need to figure out when I am going to work out. Having calls at 7 means that I can’t do a full workout before morning calls and look presentable for video conference, so although I prefer getting it over with, I think nighttime is going to have to work.
Tonight I am doing boot camp at my gym and tomorrow Karma and I are trying boxing. Hold me. If I keep this up I am going to have killer arms and then I will hold you… or something like that. (<– OMG, have I lost my ability to be funny?!?!)
New York was REAL fun. At some point this week, when I can lift my head out from under my massive pile of materials to read and learn and listen to, I’ll post some pictures.
Basically we ate too much and walked a TON. Also, it was hot. Very very hot.
More later. Off to pick up the pup from doggie daycare. Happy me!
