100 Words: First Day on the Job

It’s those first-day jitters that get you—you feel awkward, you hardly know a soul, and most of your day is spent making up things to do between actual tasks. I don’t like first-day jitters.

I have a feeling second-day jitters aren’t much better.

I don’t want to do a lot of waiting again. I want to do something. I want to be stimulated for at least five hours. I want to have purpose. Isn’t that what anyone wants? Perhaps my purpose is coming. I feel safe here. Perhaps that is a good sign.

  1. This reminded me of my first day on the job fourteen years ago. :-D "you feel awkward, you hardly know a soul, and most of your day is spent making up things to do between actual tasks".... very true.
