I started my job today. It was much different than the fun and layed back Austin work life that I'm used to :( Its pretty strict it seems. I have strict work hours with a time card (yes, like an old fashioned one). I brought a can of soup for lunch, only to discover that they don't have a microwave. So I ate my sad little granola bar and read a book while everyone spoke Arabic around me.
I was immediately put on two projects and I feel confident with the knowledge of products that I took away from my last job. So I feel like I know what I'm doing - always a good thing. I'm hopeful that the projects will be cool despite the work environment. Keep your fingers crossed. Above is a picture out the window of the floor I work on.
I'll be better prepared tomorrow and I have some new things on my agenda:
Task #1 - buy non-microwaveable lunch food
Task #2 - learn arabic
Task #3 - kick butt
