I left with an hour to walk, ride, and find my office. Which is good because the exit for Union Station I went out of was not what I had stalked on google. I chose left because I could see the Capitol (eep!) and once at Columbus Circle, I had my bearings and headed into my first day.
As soon as I walked in and met my supervisor, my lulu lemon bag's handles ripped and sent my office goodies flying. Thanks a lot lulu for a cheap bag. I spent plenty of money on your clothes, you could at least give me a descent reusable bag.
As far as the work, well, I haven't done much. Between meeting everyone, getting more information, setting up my computer (three phone calls spanning two hours), getting lunch, going through my email (I came INTO 17 before I even started), I'm pretty well busy.
In the mean time, I have tried to find the usual office goods with pens, pencils, staplers, but also to get my desk to be something I can use long term with ergonomics and efficiency.
Oh, and my hand me down furniture has decided to not open, so I don't know how I'm getting my purse out. Oy.
So far, I like the people and the work sounds doable and intriguing. That, and I already have a happy hour! Woohoo!
