Today, I had to go to Alicia’s house, for the bridal shower meeting. I didn’t want to go, but I wanted to help make this day special for Alicia. However, I was the matron of honor and felt obligated to be there. Andrew went to the gym and I went to Alicia’s around 2:30pm. This is the thing about Alicia. She is never on time.
Once I got there, she was in the shower so I played with her dogs until she came out of the bathroom. Finally the girls showed up and we could get this meeting underway. We talked about who is in charge of what and how the games are going to work. We were excited for her and she was excited. It wasn’t that hard to keep everyone on track, but it was time consuming. I am the time a person, who takes control and wants to get things done. I couldn’t wait to leave. We sang happy Birthday to her and had tea and some cake, then it was time for me to go home! I couldn’t wait!
After applying for jobs, and going back and forth with a recruiter from Volt, signing paperwork, a drug test, and finally my first day arrived. A new opportunity was finally here.
Today, was my first day at Fedex. I was excited and nervous. I got there a little earlier than I was supposed to. I had to meet with Jim Connolly. He was the IT director to which I would be reporting to. Jim came down to the security desk to meet with me, he gave me a tour of the building, and took me to get a photo ID badge made. I knew where the bathrooms were, and where to get coffee. I wasn’t so busy on my first day, which was kind of different for me. I was learning the ropes with an older woman named Patty. We talked about her son’s wedding, her plans for the weekend, and how she feels about her son’s fiancee’s family. It is nice to have someone to talk to. I could already tell that I would have a lot of work mommies here.
Throughout the day, I tried to hint a few times that I would love work here full-time in hopes that they would find some way to keep me on after my contract ends, but we will see! My hours here are 7am-3:30pm.
