So yesterday was my first day back at work. It was quite strange to be back in the routine that I’ve been in ever since I was 20. That routine being waking up, going to work, come home, crash, repeat. It’s funny how one month of not working could get me so off kilter.
One thing that makes this job different is the fucking commute. Uy my fucking vey! I realize I’ve been spoiled with the 20 minute commutes I’ve had the last 2 1/2 years, but I never knew I had it that great. Now I have to navigate from Los Feliz to West LA. I took the freeways the entire way today, and it took me about an hour this morning and another hour this evening. Yesterday when I took local streets in the evening it took me 1 1/2 hours.
The other thing that’s different is the fact my work computer is a laptop. Yup. I have a lappy now. In fact I’m writing this post while taking a shit. Wait. I need to wipe. Hold on.
Ok. As for the job itself, it’s pretty cool. It’s a much broader job since I’m not focusing on one part of accounting. Parts of it are all new and shiny and exciting, and I can’t wait to delve more and more in it.
But oh my god that commute is absolutely soul sucking. So be prepared to hear a call from me between 5 and 6 in the pm.
