work and some laughs

Learning a new job is always interesting, but I have been loving mine!
I feel a little like a small fish in a big pond, who happens to closely stalk one of the more experienced fish.
There is a LOT to learn, but I feel pretty confident that I'll be able to do it.

The people there are so nice and like to joke around, which is fun. My friend Kristen also just started here as the night/Saturday receptionist and it's good to see a familiar face when she is here. What I love about the job so far is that it feels like an important one for the company, and I will be busy. At the hotel, there were often hours that would pass with little or nothing to do but check and re-check that all the computers were updated and reports were run. I am thrilled that in this position I will always have something to do. I love to be occupied and have a task to work on, and both days of training so far Hadley has had long lists of things to do and then has random projects come up she works on. Its ideal for me.

I also cover at the front desk for lunch breaks, and today I am here from 8am til 8pm because Kristen is off taking some of her awesome photos. If today is anything like the last two days, I will go home feeling super energetic and hyper. After work my first day I called Lucas right away and excitedly told him every detail of my day and he quietly listened, then says, "Someone is excited!". Why, yes I am.

Also, it didn't take much time sitting here and walking through the showroom, but I want an Acura. haha


My camera battery charger is packed away and in our storage unit, so for a while my posts will be pictureless. Unless I get a chance and get to take pictures with my cell phone, then you can be pleasantly surprised.


This morning I picked up some stuff from my parents house on the way to work.
My mom had folded a little piece of paper and my name was written on it.
It made me laugh pretty hard once I got to work and started reading it.

This is what it said,
(I'm pretty sure it was an email forward she got)

A first grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in  her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. it's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders.

Right? Acuras rock. You should get on the company car program pronto and get yourself an ILX or a TSX. In fact, ask them about the ILX and they'll probably give you one, since they haven't been released yet and only the cool kids know about them.
