First Impressions

I'm so bored I could cry. I think that with any learning curve there is going to be places where boredom lives, I just didn't expect it on the first day. This is going to be a problem for me as I need to feel useful! I will need to create opportunities where I can thrive...I also think, for me, it's hard to come from knowing a lot about a job, to knowing virtually nothing and learning from scratch.

I see a lot of process improvement areas as well...starting on that ASAP.

There is a Fall Banquet on October 26th - I already invited my parents as my dates so hopefully they can come! Anyone else who wants to come will be welcomed. I may even get a whole table!

My new email:
Please use it! I'll try to have IM up by the end of the week.

We prayed twice today so that was nice - now I need to pray for some work to do!
Overall, it was a great first day - there is another Nazarene lady from Renton Church so that was nice. I only cried once too during devotions when they all thanked God that I was there was touching.

The potluck was very good as's nice to be accepted and needed. I just hope I have enough to fill my days.

I hope things pick up for you. Sounds like a nice place to work though. It's good to feel accepted by coworkers!

I'm glad it went well...I'm sure it will get better as you learn more about the job. When are you coming over for dinner???

Nice change to feel wanted isn't it.. I felt the same way when I came to Financial Aid. Remember I was bored at the begining here also.

Iam so happy that you have found a place of acceptance! Hang in there - the learning curve comes with bordem cause you can't really embrace the job as yours quite yet. Have I told you today: I am so proud of you! and I love you!

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
