Well I started my new consulting job today. It was about what I expected. Not
bad, but after about six hours I realized, "Damn, I have to do this tomorrow
too!" I just have to get back into the swing of things I guess. I do enjoy what
I do, so it's not torture at all, it's enjoyable. My new co-workers seem nice,
and I have my very own
cell, er, cubicle, fairly good sized,
with 6 foot walls. I've got a decent computer, a nice wooden desk, lots of shelf
space, and a phone with tons of buttons. However, the desk is devoid of any
supplies, the chair isn't that comfortable, and I don't have a waste basket
(I'll have to scout one out tomorrow morning). They do have free coffee,
that's a huge plus.
Thanks everyone for wishing me luck! Everything seems to work it self out. I
could have taken much lower paying jobs, but I decided to stick it out. I didn't
want to be saying to myself, "I worked for 15 years just to take a job for what
I was making 10 years ago!" It is a huge relief though; now knowing that I have
a decent income and can easily pay my bills.
I just called unemployment to get my last check and it seems that it ran out,
so this was perfect timing!
