A New World

This week was my first in my new job.

BORING.

I didn’t have much to do. I only have two-hour training per day with my manager about processes and stuff. The rest of the time was spent surfing the net, reading an ebook, or playing Freecell or Klondike on my phone.

I have this weird habit of playing cards, electronic or the real thing, when something’s troubling me. I make a wish and try to complete a game 3x in a row. I continue playing for hours and even days until I meet the criteria.

This time I wished she would come back into my arms. I was successful. Twice.

This week was my first in my new job.

BORING.

Except for the time when Facilities issued me my office supplies. I signed the slip without bothering to check what those supplies were. When I did I almost laughed out loud.

They issued me a freaking calculator. The kind used by accountants and salesladies. I was like what am I going to do with that?

BORING.

There is internet but the sites allowed are limited. Sports and Entertainment sites and sections are blocked. Heck, even the review section of clickthecity is blocked. Dang!

Outside email engines are blocked too. No YahooMail. No Gmail.

And no instant messenger. No YM. No AIM. No Meebo.

Management must be training their employees to be workaholics. It’s working.

My teammates don’t talk to each other. They’re too focused. They don’t joke around. They don’t go for afternoon snacks.

I miss my old teammates.

I like my new office though. It’s big. I have a huge LCD monitor. I have a desktop with a 2++ GHz clock speed and a 2Gb RAM.

And they pay well.

The day is going to end on a bright note. I and my old teammates are getting together for a night of binge drinking.

My latest status update is right on.

I have drank more beer these past four weeks than the previous three years combined.

Have a great weekend everyone!
