Just checkin' in...
Monday, May 23, 2011
Well I started my new job last week. Back to the real world of rolling out of bed, making a healthy breakfast and lunch, looking professional and in the car by 8 am.
I also had this lung crud and was coughing constantly. It would have a been a sick week if it hadn't been my first week. Instead I worked, came home and passed out.
I'm working for a non-profit agency in a neighboring county that provides job readiness, placement assistance and support for low income people. The first week was all about getting the computer-laptop-up and running, finding a charger for the cell phone, getting a roladex and other stuff I need to do business and meeting people in the agency. There are actually 5 programs that I am working with and each program has its own needs, rules, etc. So this week is about learning about the clients that I'll be assisting, making up lists of targeted businesses to call on, attending a job fair and hopefully getting out in the community and making something happen.
I haven't been tracking or spending much time on SP, I stop by to clear my email in box, peak at some of my buddies' updates and move on. On a pretty positive note-I think, I've been eating pretty darn well-Gary and I ate a package of Oreos in one sitting Saturday nite-why do I think they'll last week, but that was the major blow off. Other than that, I'm eating breakfast, packing lunch, taking the stairs instead of the elevator and walking my new neighborhood at lunch. For week 2, I'm doing ok.
I'll be back and check in with you all, hopefully this weekend. In the meantime, know that I'm burning my little spark as bright as I can.
Stay safe everyone with all the crazy weather. It's almost summer, hooray!
