First Week of Employment

Fun & Games are over! After spending time teaching ESL in Korea, and my most recent 2.5 month “Fall Break,” it’s back to the adult working world. I am returning feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. I’m happy to be here and look forward to learning a lot! Week 1 kept me busy! There’s not much to photograph (an office is an office is an office), but definitely expect to see photos of my cafeteria lunches through year-end, because they are awesome!!

Orientation day! About 30 other new employees and I spent all day in a training room filling out paperwork and listening to presentation after presentation. Benefits, Taxes, Information Security, Ethics, laptop set-up, etc. Information overload!

I really look forward to utilizing the fitness center at work. Not only does it offer a great selection of strength training and cardio equipment, there are personal/partner training options and free group classes! What’s better is I’ll definitely be motivated to keep it up because traffic is a lot better after the first evening class than at 5pm!

(1 more month of my 2015 365 Project – wowza!)

I work in my first official “cube.” Really, this is the first time I’ve ever worked in an office that even has cubes. It’s a brand new experience for me and so far it’s fine. I actually have more desk space than I ever did in an office. I also have a printer right behind mine so it’s almost like it’s my own.

Some people have really decked out their cubes with holiday lights, wall decor, etc.. I definitely need to do a little something. So far the only decoration I have is a wallet photo of Kevin, Santa and me.

Ever walk down the street and feel like you’re being watched?

Today I had Indian food for lunch at the cafeteria! Oh my goodness. Very delicious. I just love that something like this is even an option.

Met up with my friend in downtown DC and we paid a visit to the US Capitol, which has its own Christmas tree separate from the National Christmas Tree by the White House. I’ve actually never seen this one before so it was nice to be able to stop by on such a beautiful December day.
