First Day On The Job

My first day went by rather quickly, although there were parts that dragged. Once I'm fully in my role though, I don't expect that to continue. I'm all set up with an email address, phone number and desk. I'll be sharing the desk with another producer whom I'll never see. I'm not sure how she's going to like my stuff, and I'm not sure how I'm going to like hers. We don't have any choice though.

I will have a parking spot inside in the garage. That won't help me outside of work though. Driving here really is the opposite of pleasant. Today we were behind a cable car. They stop every other block you know. The streets do split. But the second lane is where police and other vehicles stop.

I don't know what else to say about today. There were a lot of figurative SFO sized hills. My benefits start today, meaning surgery will come sooner rather than later. I put my social security card in storage though, and one needs that to be able to work legally. So Jesse and I had to stop at the San Francisco Federal Building this afternoon.

We have our place. It's clean. It's also tiny and the bed is really hard. We have to get to Target for some incidentals, but there aren't any within city limits. I still have no idea where I can leave my car after work, even if I'm willing to pay. Also, Jesse insists we must get the Internet. That's not high on my list of priorities though. I haven't worked out in at least a week. No, one has nothing to do with the other. I just think our heads are in different places sometimes. Right now though, they're both on this rock-solid mattress.
