A Whole New World

Today was my first day at work, and boy, what a day it was. The new things started hitting me immediately and kept coming throughout the day - I have an office, my Blackberry is on order, there are so many code sections and abbreviations I don't think I'll ever know any of them, I will have to dictate (what?!?) all letters and reports and my dictation machine (whatever it's called) is coming tomorrow, etc, etc, etc. I'm so tired!!! The only thing that helped me get through it was only focusing on the task at hand; whenever I found myself thinking about the future and handling things on my own I would start to feel a tightness in my chest and a sinking feeling in my gut. So, here's to taking one day at a time! Now I need to go to bed because I have to be at a fellow attorney's house tomorrow at 6:30 am (crying on the inside!) in order to make it to an 8:30 am court appearance in LA.
