Before my first day at junior high, I was so anxious I couldn't sleep. I awoke at 4:30 a.m., got dressed, gathered my things, and ate breakfast. Then I faced several hours of waiting before I could go. My point is I'm high strung.
I've been antsy for a couple of weeks. Waiting to see if I'd get the job... Waiting to see exactly what I'd be doing... Waiting to see if I could do it... It all makes day one that much more fun. I didn't get so much sleep the night before. I misjudged the traffic factor and arrived a few minutes early. I filled out some paperwork in the morning. I couldn't get my key yet. M showed me around. Our team communicates via IRC. (Isn't that perfect? I spend all day on IRC.) I was charged with some simple tasks. Unfortunately the network had issues and we spent a while unsuccessfully trying to track them down. So that was pretty much my day.
