I'm very tired...

I started my new job last week, and so life has been totally hectic. I graduated right before Christmas and found an afternoon job doing medical transcription, which has been a goal of mine for what seems like a LONG time, and so I have been working my first job, (before dawn to around noon) and then coming back and doing my typing in the afternoon. The account has a lot of different specs, so it is a LOT to remember, which makes me very glad that I can only do a certain number each day until the first part of training is done. Phew! Eventually I'll be doing this full time.

I have had quite a bit of stress starting this new job, because I want to learn really quickly, and not give my trainer more work than necessary. I also kept wondering, "What if it turns out I HATE transcription? What would I do then?!?" Thus, it was a nice surprise to find that, even though they started me on a doctor who is a very hard guy to hear, and gave me all sorts of warnings about how awful he is, I actually am enjoying the process! He has not been really horrible yet, and I'm very happy because if he is the worst than I know I'll really like listening to the others! :-)

One thing that I am very grateful for about this job, is that they have a stellar reputation for how they train and treat the workers. In the MT world, it is pretty hard to find companies that are good to their employees, so I am glad to have gotten this job.

However, my brain is dead...

Oh well. The horses are doing fine, but I haven't had too much time to play with them lately. Tomorrow I hope to have enough time to take them both for a walk and groom them more thoroughly. I want to get more pictures of them!

I hope everyone else's week is going smoothly!

Good luck dealing with the new job. It's so hard adjusting to a change in schedule.
