First Week on the Job

 I started a new job this past Monday.  I’m now a customer care advocate at  The position is temporary, but I might be offered a permanent position if I do well enough.  

The first week was all training.  It went well, but it got a little overwhelming at times.  I’m used to being able to jump into a job and being instantly pretty dang good at it.  I’d been doing massage for quite some time, and I had it pretty well down.  So, this is a big change for me.  But I think it’s a good change.  I can always do massage for private clients, so I’m not giving up on it.  I’m just taking a step back.  And taking my first step down a new path.
