Finally an update...

So i LOVE my new job. Just wanted to let you all know that. The people are really nice, friendly, and I'm in a more professional setting that, I think, is more to my taste. I never really thought of a career while in school, it wasn't in the plan, but if I have to choose, this job is pretty good. One funny little moment though, what would this blog be without a lisa moment. Last Thursday, I needed to get a hold of a coworker. Our internal email program has a chat function and I was having fun learning the ropes of how people in my office communicate. I found who I wanted to chat with, clicked on what I thought was the correct button and to my horror, saw that the button I pushed, invited MY ENTIRE office to a chat meeting. I quickly logged off the chat, but throughout the rest of the day, I got pop ups asking if someone could help me, they saw I had tried to contact them, or at the end of the day by the elevator, I got the snide remarks, so, wanna chat? I guess all the new people do this and one day, I will get my chance to laugh when the next employee takes their turn. What's a little more embarrassing, my boss, the head guy, joined the chat. He was just curious to see what I wanted to talk to everyone about.

Here's chatting with ya!

Lisa, you can't have an entry with the title "Finally an update..." when you haven't really updated it in a month.
