schneefink: (FF Kaylee in hammock)
I wanted to make a post about how I was doing at my new job, and then I remembered that today at 5pm a guy from IT told us not to turn off our computers today because of an important update, and today at 6pm I left work and of course turned off my computer just like I always do. *facepalm* Great job, self. Have fun tomorrow morning.

Overall it's going well though. I think. It seems like every few days one of my bosses tells me of a silly mistake that I can't believe I made and reminds me not to do it again and it's very embarrassing. Fortunately triple redundancy is pretty much built into every step of the process, but still.

The people are nice though, I'm getting used to the hours, and I'm not bored yet. (I will eventually, but my contract only lasts until July anyway, and I'll start sending job applications again in May. Not looking forward to it.)

Last week was the first week of my new job. The job itself was fine: the people are nice, the work itself isn't the most exciting but not too boring (as I expected), and of course I'm still learning. (On Friday I had nothing to do the whole day because I finished all tasks early and had to wait for feedback, so for a while I felt like a bad employee before I reminded myself that it wasn't my "fault" I had nothing to do.)

But not only in the evenings, but also this weekend I had barely any energy left. I'm SO GLAD I don't live on my own. If left to my own devices I probably would have spent the entire weekend binge-watching Critical Role episodes (currently watching #66), but as it is on Saturday I at least met with my dad and LB for lunch and went for a walk, and I ate and had lunch with and started re-watching NiF with DD today. I'm convinced that it'll get better eventually though, hopefully soon. I knew there would be an adjustment period. Concentrating during eight hours of work and even waking up in the mornings actually went better than I feared, so that's good.
