*lies on the ground*
It’s going to get better, I know it is. But right now it’s incredibly draining, and I feel like a huge noob about everything. Everything is a damned trial. Even just getting lunch. I feel like my IQ dropped by fifty points in the last few months.
The good: the dude sitting next to me recognized by N7 hoodie, and we commiserated over our mutual hatred of the ending of ME3. Yay, gamers! I also spent a few minutes chatting with a guy who I worked with at the beginning of my career, way back at Buzz. He actually reassured me a lot… pointed out that a lot of the people there are way newer than us, and he said he was happy to see my name pop up in the new hires email, because he knows I know what I’m doing. In theory, I guess. I just have to figure out how to force my experience through the sieve of all these new procedures.
