To work...or not to work

No, I`m not dead, I just feel that way. *g*

Have started new job on Monday which seriously cuts into my time for anything. Getting up early, coming home semi-late due to the drive home, I feel there is little left of the day before I need to crawl back into my bed to be able to get up early. Well, I think I need a couple more weeks to settle into a rhythm.

On Monday they told me my workplace is well prepared - in theory. Well, that meant I have NO workplace as in no room, no desk, no phone, no computer, no nothing. Since our department head however went on vacation from Tuesday on, I now use her office. Where I...still can`t work really because I also have no registration for the computer. And since I need database access for ALL possible work I could do, it`s not looking good.
My colleagues - who are really, really nice - can`t log me in because you can only do it once and of course they need to be logged in on their computers. Also not using a programme for a certain amount of time will automatically log you off by which time I`d need the passwords again. And there are different ones for every single programme I`ll be using. Including logging onto Windows in the first place.

The person responsible for handing out these reg numbers is - you guessed it - on vacation. Her sub hemmed and hawed and finally said it`s better to wait till Mrs.K will be back on Monday. Of course then it`s not sure I will actually get the codes, only that we will TALK about it. :-p

So right now I`m going through the "cliffs notes" as in the schooling material on the new programmes I`ll be using, the databases, the subject matter I`ll be dealing with. It`s quite thick and kept me busy so far but this shouldn`t go on too long. Also it looks that when I finally will have computer access we`re all blocked from the internet so no checking flist during day. :/
Tomorrow is a "short day", thank god, than week-end. Woohoo. Also next week is pay-day already. Yay.

Good question. *g* But I guess to be payed you have to be physically there, if there is an actual possibility to work for you or not. :)

*g* Willkommen zurück im Arbeitsleben Die Zeit der 50.000 Wort Stories ist vermutlich erstmal vorbei ; )

Die erste Woche ist immer hart, Kopf hoch! In zwei-drei Wochen hast du dich dran gewöhnt. Naja, bis auf die Tatsache, dass am Ende des Tages halt nicht so viel Zeit für Fandom übrigbleibt ; )

Befürchte ich auch. Obwohl ich diese Woche schon mal ein bißchen zum groben plotten benutzt hab für die bigbang-Fic.

In zwei-drei Wochen hast du dich dran gewöhnt.

Bis dahin bin ich ja auch hoffentlich computerisiert und arbeitsmäßig schon ein bißchen in den Tritt gekommen.

Und die Zeiten sind recht cool insofern dass wir gar keine Kernzeiten haben. Ich muß nur irgendwie zwischen 6.00-18.00 meine Stunden abschrubben. Von daher sieht es mit dem Verzaubert gar nicht mal so schlecht aus. Die meisten gehen Freitag eh zwischen halb und um 12, die letzten so gegen 1. Amt halt. :D Da kann ich hinterher immer noch ganz gut nach Mainz kommen.
