Presenting

I can has updatez

Week one of work is officially over. It went very smooth, as as anticipated, I enjoy the work. The one thing I wasn’t sure about at first was the drive, which is 30 minutes one way, but surprisingly I don’t have to deal with traffic. I had expected the drive in the morning and night to be pretty horrific, but it’s actually a breeze! It also helps that it’s nearly a straight drive North, rather than dealing with random turns all over the place

My days involve me waking up at 7am, taking a shower and getting ready. I leave at 8am, and typically waltz into the office around 8:45am. I have my own cubicle to work in, although the section I’m in only has three of us. At least in our “hallway.” It is interesting getting to eavesdrop on other people though, especially the ones that are on the other side of me. The other day a lady was talking about how a mouse got into her box of Splenda, and proceeded to hope that it got cancer from it. 😛

I’ve got a bunch of projects on my platter right now, so I’ve been trying to get those done as quickly as possible. I like that I sit around all day coding up websites. Honestly, the day seems to go by really fast. Yesterday I started at 8:45am, and by the time I looked at the clock, I realized it was already 11:30am and my tummy was growling.

I think my personal favorite of the job thus far is that everyone uses IRC to talk to each other. Although I have to admit that when I’ve got a few questions I feel weird PM’ing him in the #chan, because he’s literally diagonal to my cube.

In other news, my birthday is in five days and my Kentucky Derby pick (Gayego) was a failure as it normally is.

  • Congrats on the new job 🙂 My old job involved a commute of 30 minutes, it wasn’t too bad I usually just listened to a cd to keep myself amused the whole way. Your job sounds nice, I’d love to have my own cubicle at work … but since you don’t really get that at Target I don’t see it happening anytime soon.

    Finding a job you love, is always a lovely thing.

  • Haha, that’s pretty cool about the whole IRC thing! I haven’t used IRC in years though! Happy birthday in advance too!

  • I wish I got up at 7am, I’m already at work by that time 🙁

    Congrats on the job, hope you continue enjoying it and have stress free drives to and from work – there’s nothing worse that leaving work only to have more hassle trying to get home!!

  • Congratulations. 🙂 What’s the job by the way? It sounds cool. In our office, we email each other even when we are just desks apart, but we don’t really have IRC and stuffs. Not even wifi. Pooh.

  • SCARY, Jordan!!! O_o This entry sounds like something I would write about my own office! Get up at 7am, 30 minutes to work, not much traffic, own cubicle, only THREE of us…um, did you get a job at my company while I wasn’t looking…. O_o That would probably be fun if you had. XD

    Glad to hear it’s going well for you! Especially that you enjoy it…boring work sucks. Ahhh all day long coding websites, it’s just fab. 🙂 It’s lucky to find jobs like that!

    HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, YOU! 😀 I already knew about it because I had it on my Google calendar, muahaha…not like I stalk you or anything… O_o

    Hehe. 😀

  • I’m glad to hear that your work is working out this far!! Sounds like it is possibly the right job for you! I love jobs where the day is gone so fast each time you look at the clock. I think I would like to do coding all day, but at the same time, I don’t think I would at all.

  • Oh don’t worry: you’ll get used to it really fast. We use Skype at work, and today I actually PMed a colleague sitting right next to me (30cm) XP …
    I kind of envy that you have cubicles. We don’t: there’s justa bunch of desks turned this way and that so that as many of us as possible can fit inside.

  • Your job sounds interesting lol It is amazing that everyone chats on IRC..I always feared working in a cubicle,I thought I’d freak out of claustrophobia.
