So, here we are. Finally, at the new space. I was more surprised at the emptiness of our old cubicle, though (they moved our PCs). I guess it just hit home that we won’t be sitting there anymore.
I went with my girls to the office last Thursday so they could see my new cubicle. I think they liked it, but it’s not as spacious as it had been in the old area. The SD had provided some potluck food for that day as well, to welcome the “co-habitation”. It’s too bad there were so much carbs (cookies, pasta, regular soda), so I just had to take a little bit of them to prevent me from getting a high blood sugar count later.
Today is really my official day back to work at the new space. It’s a bigger area, but there’s more people, too. I can’t take a nap like I used to, though I’m surprised J had his pillows and blankets out when I came in to take over the shift. However, the other guys seemed to be nice. I mean, they’re human, I know, but how “free” can I really be around them? Can I play games when I’m bored? Can I do this and that? Can I? Can I? I guess I’m just treading water for now. At least this girl during my shift today seemed nice enough and gave me some good pointers and even sent me her “cheat sheet” on how to troubleshoot some issues.
It’s also hard to get adjusted in not seeing the Computer Room. We have this window that we look back and see if people are in there or if we hear an alarm or something. I guess I’ll have to make more trips to walk around and check it.
I do like my new cubicle (because I have my own desk that no one can dirty, unless they use my PC) but I’m not sure about my chair yet. It’s one of those expensive ergonomic chairs but I’m so used to this simple chair I had in the old space. Being pregnant and sitting on this new chair is either not helping me at all or helping me a lot. It’s really weird. I guess it’s another thing to get used to, or just get my old chair back.
Here’s to new adventures. I do love adventures, even if they are good or not. It’s still a good learning experience either way.
