I’m tired. We had to sleep in the guest room last night because the walls of our bedroom were covered with primer and stunk up the room. But the real reason that I didn’t sleep well was because I was nervous about my new job. I have had a lot of jobs and the first day never gets any easier. I hate not knowing what’s going on and feeling so inept. I felt like this was my first job ever all day. I know that I’ll get it and it just takes time, but I hate this feeling of not knowing what the hell is going on. I keep reminding myself that I’ve felt like this at every job and that I’ve always gotten over it. You’d think I’d be used to it by now. I have had a lot of jobs since college:
Graphic Designer – Newspaper
Graphic Designer – Real Estate Magazine
Pre-press Operator – Printing Company
Production Manager – Magazine
Production Manager – Non-Profit
Production Coordinator – Media Buying Company
Graphic Designer – Publishing Company (New job)
Anyway, the point of that was that, coupled with a 3-mile after work, I’m tired and don’t really have the energy to write anything of interest.
I’m going to see Dave Matthews Band tomorrow night. I think I’ve probably seen them around 25 times. Really.
Is there a band you have seen numerous times? How many jobs have you had?
