It’s 11AM and I’m just waking up. This is the longest that I’ve slept in a while and I do not feel one ounce of guilt. This was my first full week at my new workplace and it was absolutely wonderful. My acclimatization processes were quite enjoyable and I absolutely enjoy working and speaking with the individuals I’ll be working closest with. I’m the only IT person in this department and it seems as if my other coworkers marvel at that fact. They even surprised me with balloons tied to my desk after they found out I was coming to the office. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.
My day-to-day duties and overall role was fully explained this week and I can honestly say that I know this is a role that I will really enjoy. As a senior data analyst, I’ll be responsible for managing a few systems for several different clients, organizing and compiling data, training, etc. There are duties that are a bit more technical, although I don’t have to do any coding, which was my preference. Well, let me backtrack, I do have to code, but it’s more web and DB coding and maintenance.. if I’m making any sense. I could go on, but I’ll save that for when you all have time to go to my linkedin account.
In hindsight, I’m glad I decided to just take the leap and find something else. Even after being so reluctant because I had gotten so comfortable at my old workplace for the past three years. And since I’m on this celebrating life tip real heavy, I celebrated this leap with amazing food all this week without any guilt in regards to this diet I’m on for my birthday celebration in DR.
And I’m more than grateful for that experience because it helped me figured out what I wanted to do in the IT world, at least for the next few years. But in my new role, it’s also so exciting to be able to work in a smaller environment and work so closely with executives. I think that’s one of the things that I enjoy most about my role, besides me having the opportunity to be extremely analytical without being ridiculed for it. :hmph:
I’m looking forward to next week, but I also plan to make sure I get A LOT of rest this weekend. I need it. Especially for Game 7. -____-
