Why is that no matter how many times you've started a new job, it's still just as scary. It's exactly like the first day of school all over again. You're not quite sure you're going to like your class/work-mates and what if you go to the wrong room. And, worst of all, what if you're not wearing what the cool kids are wearing?
I just wish we could all start on the second day. Can we all put our heads together and figure out a way to make this happen. It will be for the benefit of all.
I just wish these necessary things were easy. I'm not asking for the best day of my life, just an easy, peaceful day. If every first day of work were as easy as making pie, everything would be so much less scary.
