My First Day on the New Job

This is one of the first "first days" I've had in a new job that didn't end with a massive headache -- and I take that as a very good sign!

And actually, it's after 11 PM and my day hasn't ended yet!

Since our office space won't be ready until the 15th, my boss, my first direct report and I met at a wonderful coffee house in Seattle. For 8 hours we went over various software tools that I'll have to learn in order to do my job, as well as HR stuff, procedural stuff, housekeeping stuff, and just a little "meat" of the job. Once that face-to-face meeting was over, I zipped home, quickly ate a dinner prepared by Tom, and got right back to work, reviewing documents and applications for a variety of positions I need to hire ASAP. And I'm still not finished!

Tomorrow is already booked pretty solid, as is the rest of the week. When my boss said we'd hit the ground running, he wasn't kidding! Still, I have a feeling I'll love this job! The emphasis of my position is on managing, mentoring and team-building, which I'm SO excited about! I feel like I've developed content long enough and now I'm ready for a new challenge -- and this looks to definitely be IT!
Don't worry, I won't abandon my beloved blog... though I might post abbreviated posts for a few days! Stand by!

Is it a little odd to be working without a workplace?

I'm interested in this coffeehouse. Maybe you and I can meet there someday.
