Happy Friday!

on November 14, 2008 - 11:19pm

I made it through my first week! Next week comes my first challenges when what will be my normal job duties are shifted to me and I actually will have stuff to do on a regular basis :) Hopefully I'll get to hold off on taking the employee calls just yet so I can listen in on them some more first but we'll see. I'll get by...

It's late (again) after 11 and in the midst of the work week I didn't remember til later this aft. that the new Bond movie is out this weekend...must go see it tomorrow. Hmm...yes I guess I should look up the times to know when :) And also, Brad Paisley tickets are going on sale tomorrow at 10am for his concert (w Dierks Bentley open) in Feb. of 09 so that will be fun. Hope I can get some decent seats since this is just general sale. On Sunday I've got to sit down and compile a list of the apts. I want to look at- where each is located, what the price is, pet deposit amt., etc and call up and schedule a bunch of appointments on Saturday since most of their hours for tours are while I'm at work. Anyway...gotta go catch up on some TV while getting ready for bed. Happy Friday all!

No rest for the...

on November 11, 2008 - 11:04pm

working girl! Day two today of my new job. I think I will enjoy it and I'm looking forward to that day when I'll know exactly what to do for each step in what process and not feel like I have to ask someone to make sure I'm doing it right. I think the most interesting challenge will be taking the employee calls and listening to their complaints/issues and determining if it's a problem I can help them with, who I can forward them to, or if it's an issue that needs further research by one of our HR Generalists. I have this weird thing about talking on the phone when other people around can hear me so I'll have to get over that very quickly but I'm sure it won't be a problem when I know more what I'm doing and how to talk an employee through one of those phone calls as obviously I'll be more focused on dealing with that than whether anyone can hear me. Anyway, it's late and I need to try to get at least six hours sleep before I have to be up early. I have so many thoughts in my head as I'm going to have to figure out stuff I've never had to before like setting up my 401K and figuring how much to contribute,etc...picking out a benefits package, trying to figure out what the heck I need to do to move...how to get an appt. AHHHHH!!!! :) Must sleep...don't let me stress!!!

GENIIUUUSS I Say!

on November 7, 2008 - 2:13pm

Is it Friday? I've lost my sense of time this week...I thought it was an hour later just now becaues I haven't changed the clock in my car back an hour yet. Took the doggies to the parental unit's gallery to drop of some Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack cd's to play as "atmospheric music" and on a walk. Went to the grocery store and found Ben and Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice cream so you know I had to get it. Then as I'm paying, lo and behold the screen says "Do you want to donate to Breast cancer research?" and below there is a yes or no choice. I'm like genius! Why couldn't they have done that all along. Now all I have to do is press no instead of the poor checkout clerk having to ask me and me saying "I really wish you didn't have to ask." Because now they don't! Hahah...you have no idea it's this simple thing that can make you happy :) I love it...Yes or no! Now if every store could change it to that way it would be great.

Blob.

on November 6, 2008 - 7:38pm

I have been a big lazy blob this week. The past three days I've been lazy yes, but today I topped it off by putting in my Madagascar dvd (I love Melman!) since the sequel will be in theatres shortly, and did what I tend to do sometimes...halfway through I feel like napping and I pause the movie and usually that turns into an hour nap but today it lasted from about noon til 4:30 or so hehe :) and so the cycle continues...I have three more days of freedom before slaving over a desk come Monday and I think I'll make use of them now that I've gotten to be lazy for once :) I want to see the Madagascar sequel and also the new James Bond, Quantum of Solace. I'll admit I've never seen any of the other James Bond movies but I bought the dvd for Casino Royale and I love love love it. I think it's a great movie- exactly perfect for its genre/style and I love Daniel Craig as Bond too. I'm hoping this one is just as good and I like that it picks up where the other left off instead of just being "another" Bond movie...

McDonald's for dinner (Parental unit is picking up sis/food at present) and then my friend and I are supposed to watch Alias together on dvd while im'ing it via aim...she's the one who lives in San Luis Obispo, CA so when she moved I bought her a Netflix gift certificate so we could finish watching the series (one of my most favoritest ever!). We're just starting the last season though (wah!) but I can watch Alias over and over again...
