Long Days at Work Ahead

I woke up at 6am today wondering why my alarm hadn't gone off. I had set it so that it would go off at 6am on Tuesdays and Thursdays so that I can go for a run. At some point, I realized that today is Wednesday and I was confused because Monday was a holiday. Then I debated whether or not to get up anyway but then resolved to lying in bed until 7am. I don't think I actually need so much time to get ready.

Went out to lunch with coworkers today. We all took a cab so that we can get better food outside of the mall. They have some sort of tab system going so that we're not all trying to figure out change at the end of every meal. It's convenient. There were 5 of us and they put me in the shotgun seat while the rest of them (all guys) squeezed in the back. Lol. The guys at work are funny. They're all very nice and helpful. Everyone works really hard. As soon as all the senior people leave though, they mess around and chat a lot more. Productivity just goes rapidly downhill at that point. I left a little past 8pm today. Still wondering what counts as overtime. Very tired after a long day.

I started on an actual analysis assignment today. I'll need lots of help to get it done but I'm glad that I'm doing something more challenging than marking up stuff. I've been keeping a work diary as well. This is something I should have started doing during my internships. It's hard for me to remember what I did during all those internships. Granted, a lot of the time, my internship work wasn't very exciting. But I definitely felt that I was challenged and given a lot more freedom during my last internship.

Good luck with the assignment. I had read this blog post of eating lunch together
Glad you're getting along with your new coworkers!
