New Job

I started my new job yesterday . . . and hit the ground running. The Business Venture Manager told me that I have roughly six weeks to get it all figured out, and I think that was a generous amount of time :) Ideally, he wants me to have it figured out now, so that I can be 100% productive right off the bat. But there's definitely an acclimatization period, and I'm in it now.

I've spent the past two days learning and absorbing. I've been talked to and involved in discussions, and I'm slowly figuring out what it is I'm supposed to do. I've spent time in Word and Excel, and a bit of time checking out PowerPoint stuff too. Wait until I get all of the access I've required - my head will really be spinning!

But I am most definitely enjoying it. I love being busy all day, and I love that my input and comments are being taken seriously. People act like I know what I'm talking about . . . sometimes that's good, sometimes not so much. But they don't know when I'm bluffing, only I know that. Hee, hee, hee!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I think this is a great move for me, and I'm glad I made it. I am now a Project Management Analyst slash Project Controls Specialist. If anybody figures out what that is, let me know!
