Something unusual happened this morning. I actually enjoyed my drive to work. I was singing along with the radio while tapping the steering wheel and had a smile on my face. Why you ask? Because I started a new job today. I had no idea what to expect at this new place of employment, but I knew in the core of my soul that it would be better than where I was working before.
It turns out someone I used to work with at the last job is sitting about three cubicles down from me at the new job. I went to lunch with him and 4 other people today and one of the guys congratulated me from escaping. It turns out he used to work there as well. We exchanged horror stories throughout the lunch hour. It was a kind of catharsis.
I didn't even have a computer or anything much to do today, but just the fact that the slime and stupidity of the last place was finally rinsing off made it one of the best work days in a long, long time. It can only lead to better things. The one good thing I can say about the old job is that it gave me enough anger and frustration to take to the sidewalks, so I left 45 lbs of fat behind as well.
