So I had my first day at the new job yesterday. It's a strange feeling to be the newbie at work. The whole not knowing exactly how it all fits together and works, where I am to go, or not go. I don't know the dynamic, and it's a little frustrating to not be in the flow of the new job site and knowing and doing what you are to do day to day. My experience is that it takes a couple of weeks to get into it, and know what you need to know.
On the other end of the spectrum is the leaving a work place... the idea that you went to a place several times a week and spent a lot of hours there, and now, after however long, you stop doing this. You stop seeing a lot of the people that you interacted with day after day for a couple of years or how ever long. For me that's not the biggest deal, as the two most recent jobs that I have had are the part time, temp jobs that have always been a stop gap, keeping the rent paid until I can get set up with a full time gig..
I am keeping one of the part time jobs, if I can work it around the new full time gig, and the other.... it looks as if I have one more shift, but after a week from today (21st of March) I will be done there. I don't feel any sort of sadness at leaving that job, as things have changed and a lot of my co-workers are working on getting out themselves.
More to come..
On the Road... as I mentioned last time South by Southwest is on and if I were able to spend a year on the road, that would be one of the places that I would be checking out.
