Just a short update today. Had more meet and greets today. Still loving it. Getting a little tired of talking about myself. During one of the meetings today, my orientation partner and I tried introducing each other instead of telling our own story. It's a lesson in male versus female listening skills, I think. He had me working at some places I've never worked. LOL. It was funny though and besides learning a lot about him - he's a lawyer (never know when you might need one of those...) - I'm learning a lot about others in the company. It was a good day.
After work today was happy hour for the leap year celebration and if you know me, you know that I don't typically go to things like this but after a little arm twisting, I decided that I should go. I completely love the HR reps - and my manager said that she was really looking forward to me going. Can't not go now. In fact, when I arrived she was saving me a seat. I'm so glad I went. Just having more fun with these people I now call colleagues. Just a hilarious time getting to know the personalities of the people and of the company itself. And the restaurant had like the best soft pretzels I've ever had outside of Philly. I even got an order to go with the thought that I'd go back to the hotel and read. Yeah, wasn't happening. I vegged in front of the tv, ate my pretzels, then crashed. Still catching up from the lack of sleep on Sunday and Monday nights, I think.
The restaurant is The Firehouse Grille.
