First day of work

October 15, 2007 - Categories: work

Like most (sane) graduates, I'm a little anxious about this real life thing, but I'm confident that it will work out well.

I woke up five minutes before my alarm clock went off, which was good because I still haven't figured out how to make my alarm clock less obnoxious. A trip to Ikea may be in order here. Still, waking up at 5:55 is a pretty cool thing for me. =) Looks like the week I put into developing the habit of waking up early is starting to pay off.

I met with my manager and a team member today. My manager answered all my questions, even the tougher ones. Now that I have an idea of how I'm going to be measured (and equally important: how _he's_ going to be measured), I can keep an eye out for useful ideas and opportunities.

I'll stay up a little late today to do some work on my book, even just 10 minutes of sketching. It's important to me to be able to spend a little time on that every day, or I'm going to forget. <laugh>

Everyone finds his or her own balance...
