Week One

This has been the first week of my new job as a legal assistant. It has been very interesting and not as stress-ridden as it would have been had I stayed at MM. However, it's always hard in the beginning to get the hang of a new atmosphere. There are things to learn, people to figure out which in and of itself can be pretty draining inspite of the light workload.

It's also been different in that this is the first time that I ever worked for the same company as my sister. The very first day I came in there were many exclamations of how we looked so much alike. I'm on day four and I have to admit that has already gotten super old. If I never have to hear that again it would be too soon.

I have started decorating my work space a little. Since it's my first week, my attorney has decided to take it slow with me so that I can get settled in and as such I've had time to do things like pick out a desk top on my computer, print out and arrange several pictures around my cubicle. It's actually pretty nice.

All in all I really like where I am at right now. I'm very blessed to be here and coming from my last job I'm very appreciative of certain little things that others take for granted. Like the stack of legal pads that I found on my desk =)

A Mile in New Shoes

Tomorrow is the first day of my new job. It's really weird to me. I still have thoughts as if I was going to work at MM. I found myself thinking i should stop at the WalMart on Beach after work.

However, that trip is no longer on my way back home.

Yesterday, I bought these shiny black pumps specifically for this job. Yet, pointy toe shoes need to be broken in and having only 2 days, Ruben fitted water bottles in the shoes so that they could loosen up a bit.

I just finished filling out a stack of paperwork I'm suppose to bring with me tomorrow. It still doesn't feel real to me.

Coming Soon...

Went back to working on my flowery hair clips. Originally, I wanted to make these so I could have severao clips formy hair. However, I was soon convinced that I could try putting a few up for sale. We'll see how this goes.

Fortune Cookie

I've been noticing this fortune that I had pinned to my cubicle long ago...

You are heading in the right direction...

I hope so.

Day Out

Today was my first work reduction day off. In order to aid the company during these rough economic times, every person (nonsalary) is required to take off one day with no pay. For me today was that day.

I am happy to say that I throughly took advantage of the day. After an impromptu run this morning (thanks to me forgetting about street sweeping) I got up for breakfast, and headed to the Santa Fe Springs Swapmeet. When we discovered it was closed, I suggested the Roadium. I had not been there in years.

At the Roadium we listened to various Michael Jackson songs, searched through stacks and stacks of vinyls, bought a bag of my favourite Mexican candy (verros fresa) and considered buying atari. This among other typical market thing.

I tried something called Tostilocos. It was ok. I thought it had calamari but it was pork rinds, which one wouldn't think it looked similar, but trust me......

Then as our shopping came to a close we found these cool bracelets. The picture above shows the bracelet I bought us.

After the Roadium it was time to stop by Guitar Center. I played the acoustic guitar of my dreams (Fender Telecaster) and tested out a few other instruments.

Then I had Yogurtland for the 2nd consecutive day.

So much in one day. It was incredible! Now it's time to wind down in preperation for tomorrow. Back to the grind.
