So one week in the books. Yes I’m better off than when I started — I can at least find my way out of the building! I’m recognizing faces but am far from knowing most names. The whole job will be a huge learning curve. Being taught by three different people is somewhat confusing, but someday I will sort it out.
In retrospect I wonder if I might not have been better suited and enjoyed the job I didn’t go for more. Since it was in an emergency room and my territory and therefore familiar. Moving here I really was looking for low stress and simple — which I fear this new position may not be.
But in life we make decisions and sometimes we must just stick with them. There are certainly pluses about this position so I will hang in. And there are some very decent people who went out of their way to help me get the job, so I owe it to them to give it a fair shot.
They are having a huge holiday party tomorrow which I graciously declined. Too much, too soon. Recoup and visit my Mom instead . I’d rather get to know the new co-workers sober at first! 🙂
All in all, an interesting week.
