That up there’s the basket of sweets which awaited me today on my shiny new (and first ever!) desk. It was the first day of my producing job.
They weren’t all for me, of course. They were placed there mostly for my visiting coworkers, to lure them into greeting “the new girl.” It worked — I received many.
“Oooh that’s a lotta candy you got there.”
“Is that all yours?” “No it’s for everyone.” “Good, ‘cos I’m gonna get me some of that!”
My favorite comment came from the investigative journalist who stopped by, claiming to be investigating the candy to determine if it was safe for consumption as he rummaged for a 100 Grand.
I was a bit nervous at first, but everyone was super duper friendly. Really helpful, lots of advice to offer, plenty of encouraging words for the rookie. I honestly couldn’t imagine being part of a better news team.
More than anything I’m exciteddddd. Lots to learn and I can’t wait to dive right in!
But…not so thrilled about the 2am shift I’m working in 9 hours.
Think I’m gonna have to add “sleep, in any shape or form” to the list of things I’m thankful for.
