The first day was great! I felt much much better today, the foot is almost back to normal and so was I, which was good because I had to meet a lot of people today. Highlights included:

  • Taking a tour of the museum with inside info from my boss, with the promise of more tours with even more inside info to come
  • Getting our official photo ID badges
  • Finding out we get business cards, personalized stationery (!) and office supplies we get to select ourselves from an office supply catalog (!!!!!)
  • Finding out we get to take a tour of the official museum archives at the end of the month - WHAT?! I am SO going to steal something.
  • Finding out we get direct lines and cell phones
  • And of course, meeting my new coworkers!
The day went by very quickly and I didn't want to leave when it was time. We have a full week of introductory meetings and lunches and orientations. There is so much to learn, from building policies and emergency procedures to the process of how to do my job - it's a lot to take in. Luckily, I am a part of a great team.

Seriously? I can't believe this has finally happened. When my boss hopped up from the lunch table, the other new hires and I just kind of looked at each other, sighed and laughed. Finally, one of them said, "Is this as surreal for y'all as it is for me?" There was a unanimous yes.

So, in the words of Annie, I think I'm gonna like it here!


  1. AWESOME post!... except for the missing "jk" after "I am SO going to steal something"... you might find yourself unemployed before you get to tour the archives :)

    SO happy for you!

  2. I've been waiting to see this post all day! I'm so excited for you. Glad your first day was wonderful!! :)

  3. So you get a landline and a cell phone? What are you going to do with Monica?

  4. Monica's not going anywhere. The cell phone is for on-site use only I think.

  5. I'm so happy your first day was a success! Steal something for me, too!

  6. You should just get them to pay for part of your monthly plan. Oh yeah, I would like Johnny Cash's guitar. Make it happen.

  7. Whatever, Wes. Get in line. It's not on display right now so I know it's in the archives somewhere...

  8. You used 4 exclamation points after OFFICE SUPPLIES!!!!


Oh goody!
