Oriented zombie needs BRAAAAAINS….

So Monday morning arrived, and lo. It was time for me to do a “commute” and go to “werk” again. I spent the first four hours of my day being oriented on things, large and small, at my new company. It was interesting. I’m sure I’ll remember it later, when I actually have slept on it. Right now, I’m like, “Uh, I learned like stuff?” Then I spent the afternoon attempting to log into all the various systems I was supposed to log in to, unpacking my huge box o’ stuff (my pens occasioned comment), discovered where the loot was stored, where IT sits, and that there is composting available in my building. I call that a day well done.

Oh also, this blog represents my own view and by no means the view of my employer, who I’m kind of hoping no one ever figures out or ties back to this blog, so it really really doesn’t represent them. (Why yes, I did actually read the internet use documentation and guidelines. I’m a sucker like that.)

I don’t intend to discuss my employer or employment much here. And obviously that’s like 90% of what I’m thinking about right now. That and logistics, like packing lunches, how tired and hungry the boys are when I pick them up from their new preschool and other completely thrilling things like that.

So to sum up:
Good day. Good company. Things are going well.
Hopefully I will be less zombielike soon.

One thought on “Oriented zombie needs BRAAAAAINS….”

  1. Congrats on the new job, hope it turns out to be great.

    I struggle with how to not reveal where I work while not being overly cryptic in posts about work. One job is fairly easy to conceal, the other extremely difficult because if I said anything about it, people would know what it was. I also struggle with how to bitch about my classes without anyone in my program reading my blog, though technically, because they are social media and must open themselves to feedback, positive or negative, they can’t take issue with me. Still seems like bad form, though I’ve personally never claimed to be Pollyanna.
