A spot for us to post joyous, or at least positive, job things! I am attempting to make a distinction between job-best-things and person-best-things so I thought this would help.

Today: I had my first hearing at my new job and I got a positive result! I was nervous that I would have forgotten how to do lawyer-things since I haven't had a case for 10+ months, but I did it! Also, I did not have to speak until the judge made his decision because he mistook me for an advocate from the women's shelter so we all had a laugh when he realized I was actually the lawyer.

Yay, Fizzgig!

Yesterday I got an award at work! I don't feel like I've been doing anything above and beyond what I'm supposed to do, but I guess they really appreciate me.

Oh, I like this! I've had a good week. A coworker and I bonded for 45 minutes listening/watching a conference call where a semi-incompetent trainer (she's supposed to be an information systems guru and can't figure out why certain ways of navigating around said information system brings her to different places) doing a really really basic tutorial and having other listeners come off mute and talk (NOT supposed to happen-questions are through chat). Basically the entire call was a clusterf*ck and both of us were in super snarky moods so we ended up laughing about it for a long time.

I had a parent tell me last week that I'm really good at my job. It's so nice to be recognized, because usually people only speak up when they're unhappy or want to complain - at least in my work environment.

So I'm happy but I'm a bit sad. I finished up my work for my old job last week. I was able to help people which I appreciated doing but I had to make sure that people knew that even though I'd be 'around', I couldn't support them anymore. I sent an email to my boss that I was 'done' and I felt like crying in doing it. I mean I've known for a while that I needed to move on so it is all good but it is still difficult.

And then my new manager set up a meeting with me on Monday so we have to discuss what I'm going to start working on. The coworker who I am shadowing is actually out next week so I hope he'll have some alternative ideas. Also, since my position is a partially a learning one for the next 2 months, I plan to tinker, read stuff, prep some documents, etc, etc. I started setting up my OneNote for my new job as well as setting up my planner that I bought :)

And overall, I've decided to make my home office more functional. I think for a while I was in denial that I was working at home but there is no more denial. This past week, I tried to find a slim set of drawers to set up near my desk but I couldn't find anything but found something online at The Container Store. So today we are going to go pick it up. I also bought a monitor stand which gives me space under my monitor and I am buying a real keyboard. Sadly, my work no longer provides equipment for those that work at home so it is all my expenses but I do get to write it off on my taxes and I'm writing every expense down. I'm pretty happy with where my home office is headed.

This is going to sound like a bad thing... but it is really so good.
I finally convinced my boss to stop offering to host private tea events at the house. We just don't have the man power and I don't have the time to do them. It was the first time in months I feel like she heard me say something.

Good for you, kfad, for standing up for yourself! I'm glad she finally listened.

I officially closed my first 2 cases at my new job today! Of course, now I have to figure out how to actually close a file, but I feel accomplished that I successfully helped a client with her cases!

Woot woot! Good on you guys!

I was amazingly productive today, pulled off a ridiculous volume of stuff so far this week actually (can it be only Tuesday?). I love crossing shiitake off my task board!

Edited an existing js script to mass email a bunch of people with information about an event I'm co-organizing, and it worked! Gmail is only letting me auto-magically email 100 people at a time, but whatever. Clicking 'run script' three times is much, much better than 300 individual emails (which is what my predecessor has done in the past).

I am a new medical coder (was hired a year ago at a medical complex after completing school and certification) and this week I was trained on doing anesthesia for several hospital services and I feel really good finally getting a chance to do something new. For a long time I just coded chemotherapy visits and labs/pathology. I was given a compliment that I learn very fast and it felt so good. It is rare to get compliments at work so I always relish when I do!

We are moving forward on a curator position that I will get if the current curator turns it down.

I had a stressful moment mid week because of the culture of my new job vs my last job (which I had for 10 years!). And it was partly based on a misunderstanding between my new manager and myself. My current job is project based vs my last job which was support/operations based with some projects. Anyway, I'm liking my new job, I like the challenge, I'm picking up a lot of projects but now I realized that I have to sell myself to people if I want the more interesting projects (meaning random projects come in that anyone can pick up but often people are picked specifically for projects before they become up for grabs). The good thing is I have a good reputation and I picked up an assignment I'm really excited about that was a random project that came in. I also solicited myself and picked up another two projects.

Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is breakfast burrito followed by mid-morning Cheerwine.

Ummm....
I just had a super successful time at the local homeshow. I wowed a boarded member with my knowledge of curation and management. And did so in a way that was not at all disrespectful of anyone else's job (the curator we have is great at paperwork, not at exhibits and I was able to focus away from that). I was able to successfully show what a full education program good me.
Nothing changes for me if things don't' change or really if they do change. If I get the curator job I would just love my work, where is the bad?

I am moving forward in my training less than 4 weeks into the job! I have my own clients being assigned to me by intake instead of my boss handpicking easy ones for me, I'm doing 2 presentations at a Continuing Legal Education seminar this month and doing a presentation to educate providers/benefit specialists next month!

I was offered a promotion! It will mean more client contact, and these particular clients are adorable, adorable people. I'm stoked!

I am having one of those weeks where my subjects are all over the place. I only hope google is tracking my search habits, because this week has been an AMAZINGLY bizarre barrel of goodies. A book of surgical corrections for foot deformities and injuries, dental implant materials science, and just for fun, JESUITS. And the policies coming out of the Chilean central bank.
When my job is good, my job is really good.
(the jesuits got tiresome really fast)

Turns out one of our library customers is an artist whose work I really admired while I was working at an art exhibition at a museum! I spent about 40 minutes chatting to him this afternoon because the place was unaccountably quiet, and it looks like he might be coming to paint my windows (he has to supplement his artwork income). I do meet some really cool interesting people where I work!

That is cool, dropscone!

I had a co-worker ask me to hang out during non-work times and in a burst of not being terrible about social interactions, I said sure! So I think this weekend or sometime soon I will be having coffee with a new friend-I-met-at-work. It's nice to know that people here like me and that I'm fitting in! I worry that I'm too awkward or people won't get my humor and I just come across as weird, so this is awesome! And I like her, too, which is an added bonus - it would be awful if it was someone I didn't care for.
