I came back from my amazing trip to Austin to start a new job, in a new industry that I know nothing about and may well be beyond my ability to grasp. But I’m trying. Week 2 and I’ve already had to take a sick day because I caught a cold, but hey, I’m pretty sure that wasn’t my fault.
So here I am, learning all about financial markets and derivatives trading and crypto currency. It’s little things that are keeping my sane right now, like these pics from Austin (it’s good to have a professional photographer follow you around, at least sometimes).
Also in the happy making column are my temperature sensitive, color changing nails, the tickets to Universal Studios that I just bought (Harry Potter, we’re coming for you!) and the trip to LA that goes with those tickets. Oh, and not to mention Disneyland, though I haven’t bought those tickets yet…soon…very soon.
I get to be in Star Wars land for my birthday! And have a tasty adult beverage at the Cantina to celebrate! I think that’s pretty awesome. Bonus if I can find me a Chewbacca and get a hug!
But yes, the work thing is stressful and weird and I feel a little bit like I’m back in school. I guess it’s never a bad thing to keep learning!
While I’m thinking about it, and alone in the office, I need to make a phone call about changing a plane reservation. And coffee. I need coffee.
Happy Wednesday, Readers!
