Orientation and training for the new position starts this coming Monday ... which is also my birthday. Yay?
For the first two weeks (at least), i will need to arrive at the location by 6 in the morning, which most likely means getting up at 5 am so that i have enough time to get dressed, eat breakfast, etc. and get to work on time. Not yay. Anti-yay.
This new job has the potential to work out a lot better for me than my previous one, and i am really hoping that i'll manage to be a better employee and make a great impression, but early mornings and i are not really on speaking terms.
In summary, please pray that:
1. I adjust well to this difficult, albeit temporary schedule
2. I get my act together* and do well at this job
3. Finally, that my family would be able to improve our car situation (at least get a second car, hopefully trade in our old one and get two new-ish cars), because even after training when i shift to the saner swing-shift schedule, there will be a lot of driving back and forth that no one's looking forward to, especially since our current vehicle is not the most reliable
*Not that i did bad at my previous one exactly -- i didn't get fired or anything -- but i'm sure i could have done better, and it's always best to try to improve, right?
