Our first days

Pin It Yesterday was Brice's first day back to class and my first day in my new job. It was quite amazing to find myself getting up at 5:20 in the morning, rather than thinking, gee, it's almost time to go home. The commute was much easier, but since so many more people work during the day there was quite a line to get into the deck and I had to keep driving around to find a space.

It was a good first day; my preceptor was nice and I didn't really find myself too overwhelmed. It boggles my mind how slowly we were working though since I'm so used to a much faster pace and not planning out when I will do things but just doing each task immediately upon knowing about it. I just did 8 hours because I had worked Saturday night so I was pretty tired and it's a good thing I did because I don't think I could have made it to 7. (I ended up in bed a few minutes before 8:30.) I'll be back next week Monday Tuesday Thursday. I have to take a medication exam and another open-ended questions exam (5 hours!) that is apparently extremely hard on Thursday and Friday this week.

Brice just had one class yesterday that was typical of a first day, he said. Today he had to get up early for an 8:00 that will be the class he is TAing for. He told me he thinks this will b e a better semester than last as far as that goes. He has a large gap of time and then a class in the afternoon. Tonight he also has a meeting at 8 so he'll only be home for a little while to eat.

Since we're both on a day schedule now and getting up earlier, you won't need to worry as much about calling during the day. Still, we do like to sleep in on certain days so post 10am calls are always better :-)
