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.)

I'm glad you're not bored and feel it's going well! The silly mistakes thing is super embarrassing when it happens - but it happens to everyone, and it sounds like you're dealing well with the situation. ♥

I am SO BAD at remembering to leave my computer on for updates. I always think, "Next time, I'll put a sticky note on the monitor to remind me." Then I never do that.

I'm glad the job is mostly going okay. I'm sure you'll pick up on the mistakes soon. Most new jobs seem to come with them.

Oops! Well, I'm sure it's happened before.

I'm glad that the job seems to be working out. Stupid mistakes are probably pretty common with newbies, so don't be too embarrassed.

(Job searching sucks, but keep in mind that, supposedly, being employed makes employers more likely to hire you. So hopefully, you won't be at it for long!)

That's awesome! And sincerely, good luck with job application sending (the experience always seems to range from unpleasant to harrowing) ^^;
