taking wing? there must be a better way to continue the flight metaphor.

Day one flying solo as a fledgling Licensing Coordinator is finished. I have to say, I'm liking it. I managed for most of the day not to feel stupid and unprepared- and even with those questions that were beyond me, I was able to find the right person to help me get an answer. I still have lots and lots to learn about this position, but that kind of knowledge can only come with experience, and that's what I'll be getting.

At lunchtime today, Alison and John stopped by to see if I was ready to go, and even though it was 15 minutes before my normal time, I was able to say "Absolutely", grab my purse, and leave! No need to make sure it was all right, or to wait for someone to sit at my desk. And I didn't have to tell anyone all day about how much I needed to pee. Almost as exciting is that the phone is quiet most of the day- I only had one voicemail in the entire time I was away from my desk today, and I am certain that there was occasionally at least an hour between calls. That lack of constant interruption makes it so much easier to complete tasks on the computer, or to carry on conversations in which actual information is exchanged. As an added bonus, I now work in an office with people who understand that it is occasionally required to drop everything, close the door, and watch a coworker attempt to recreate a New Kids on the Block dance. This is a Good Thing. (The officemates, that is, not necessarily the dancing.)

Now, I think, it is about time for the sleeping.
