Work has been going well, and I’m surprised. Being the new guy is awful, having to learn a job almost from scratch, dealing with an entire new set of clientele, learning who thinks their ass needs to be kissed, stuff like that. So far it has been a pretty easy transition into this new job, I suppose because I’ve done before much of what I’m doing now, but still it’s hard to shake the anxiety. Whenever a customer walks in, I’m struck with a feeling of dread, and it just reminds me of how much I need to get out of customer service. Perhaps it’s experiences like this that drive one to improve their lot in life. This isn’t such a terrible experience that I feel the need to completely change my life, but I think it’s just what I need to spur me on in a different, better direction.
