Talk To Us Tuesday: New Job Edition

So a few Tuesdays ago I announced that I had finally gotten a new job!  Goodbye boring desk job for an obnoxious family owned company and hello job in a field that I care about and enjoy with a well known national organization.

I'm going into my third week on the job and I must say I'm LOVING it.  My days are broken up to where I'm spending some time in the office doing administrative work and the other half is spent out in the field doing work. While out in the field I get to interact with my staff and the kids that attend our program.  My days are flying by, I can't believe it's been almost three weeks already!  I love the bustling of it, the meetings, the check lists and the phone calls.  I thrive off of it.

The people are great, my direct supervisor and I have been working really well together and I've been enjoying getting to know him.  I share my office with two other girls, both seem like really good people.  Our CEO knows my name and actually has conversations with's amazing.  I'm so thrilled that I've been given this opportunity.

I know it's not always going to be sunshine and daisies, but I also know that I've been working longer days than normal and I'm OK with it which is HUGE.  I always said that I would never work salary again because I didn't like the idea of having to work at any minute of any day for any number of hours but this is different.  I actually WANT to be there, I WANT to produce good quality work.  It's been a long time since I've actually cared about what I'm doing at work.

So anyway, enough of my bragging.  I'm happy with where I'm much so that I'm actually considering getting a little tree for my apartment with my first paycheck on Thursday (I don't really decorate for Christmas) - crazy!  :)

Today I'm linking up with the lovely ladies IA and Shawn for Talk To Us Tuesday!
