Corners—Sometimes, They’re for Turning

with one comment

Well, finally. I think my joy is coming back.

Yesterday, I had lunch with some of the Admin Assts at work. I’m convinced, the AAs know more about what’s going on in a company on the whole than ANYONE! And it’s good to get in their good graces right off the bat, so I think I’m doing pretty well. 🙂

Anyway, finding out more about why the previous person is gone helped me feel a whole lot better about my being there. In addition, I’m getting more used to the PC, although I still keep hitting the wrong key commands! And Parsons is all about using technology… EVERYTHING is online—from keeping up with hours per project, training, resources, announcements, all HR stuff, etc.— and today, I installed a program called Microsoft Communicator, which is for Instant Messages and Web Meetings (even video conferencing, but we don’t have cameras…yet 🙂

My favorite tech thing so far is the HUGE color printer. It’s bigger than a couch, and it not only prints AMAZING colors up to 12 x 18, but it also has a CREO RIP attached so that you can do page imposition right in the printer. Woo hoo! (For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about—sorry. 🙂

My supervisor seems really nice, very knowledgable (been there 10 years), and seems pretty cool under pressure, at least from what I’ve seen. The guy I’ll be working with who’s in Pasadena is a VERY good designer, and is extremely helpful and forthcoming with information to help me. I think he’s been with Parsons for about 1.5 years, but before that, he was with one of Parson’s competitors, so he’s very familiar with the processes.

So, for some reason, something shifted in me between yesterday and today, and I was really looking forward to going in to work. And I’m getting excited about the house… still not too keen on the actual MOVE, but looking forward to the possibilities, finally.

Anyway, thought y’all would want to know… I’m BAAAA-AAAAACK!!! 🙂
