The new job began this week. It was an unusual experience for me, beginning this particular new job. I wasn't nervous or excited. It probably was due to still being in the same area of government, the same building, and working indirectly with people I already knew. It was a bit daunting though once I turned on my computer and began working that first morning. My predecessor started forwarding emails to me right away and I quickly had an inbox full of meetings to schedule, budgeting to do and random other items to get a start on. Throw on some duties left over from my previous position (until they hire someone full time) and I was swamped. However, I'm slowly getting a handle on things and I'm sure in a week or two, I'll be deep in the swing of things.
One good thing about being so incredibly busy - I don't have time to snack. Oh sure, it also helps that the snack cupboard isn't located right next to my desk anymore now that I've switched floors but I just don't have time to think about reaching for something to stuff in my mouth. And I don't (so far anyways) have much down time so I don't get those "I'm bored therefore I must eat" thoughts. My waistline will hopefully appreciate this soon.
