The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
First Day of Work; First Impressions
For a first day I think yesterday went pretty good. I was able to get most of my accounts set up before lunch and was able to get access to the rest of what I needed without any major hassles. They're already going to put me in the spotlight on Monday or Tuesday figuring out some of the critical processes going forward as the product expands. I'm looking forward to work on Monday and am refraining myself from the impulse to go in before that. If the work load looks like it will support it I'll probably ask if I can work more than 8 hours a day, at least for the next week or so.

I discovered the new job has a cafeteria where I can get lunch for under 5$. They also serve breakfast so I'll probably start eating breakfast each morning too. I just need to remember to get some cash this weekend, as they only accept cash in the cafeteria. I had to run back to my desk to get my stash of quarters from when I did laundry a couple of days ago.

Another thing I found out is that they have "casual Friday" dress code, so I could have worn jeans and a t-shirt to work yesterday. I'll be wearing khaki pants and polo shirts Monday to Thursday then jeans and t-shirts Friday to Sunday. I'll need to get three more polos tomorrow so I can make it through the week without having to wash clothes after work.

Thanks! Sorry about that time-warp-y stuff. :)

I'm still hoping to get back to Seattle some day, but that may be a few months to a couple of years as I get my finances back under control and then secure a job up there or remotely. I do plan on visiting again sooner rather than later, though.
