Happy Friday, everyone! I haven't been around here much lately because I have been tired, in the brain. I am in training at work, the most intensive training I have had in a long time, but I am hoping this will greatly help me in the future. It is almost all on computer and I do not have any access yet so I have been mostly sitting with my supervisor getting everything but the kitchen sink thrown at me. Actually, though she is trying to teach me a lot all at once, she is very nice, patient and I am learning a lot from her. I'm not overwhelmed with the work she wants me to be able to do - I know I'll get it down eventually - but I am concerned about just how high her hopes are for me. The higher the hopes the more pressure I'll feel. After all, I'm a former construction and lumberyard guy and she's teaching me the 'brainiac' stuff, her term not mine.
It has been quite a change but, like I said, I hope this can really help me in the future. I keep mentioning that because this promotion is possibly temporary before I will be promoted again to go to a less desirable position. At least I have a good job now, but who knows? There has been much change at work recently so anything can happen, and I hope it does.
That is more writing about work than I have ever done or should ever do, so on a different note:
