The Big Anticipation.
Tomorrow I go to work at my dream job. My first day. I am deeply excited. I’m not too nervous. Ok, I’m insanely nervous, but I feel confident. Plus, the first two days are just orientation, team-building, that sort of thing. I’ll be lumped in with everyone who is starting during the same pay-period as I am. My real starting date is Wednesday. That’s when I report to my workgroup and begin to figure out what the hell I’m doing here.
I’ve reached out to a lot of people at MECMC, and at the local big shiny university. I talked to my workgroup leaders about my ideas for mentored internships for university students in the hospital doing quality work (a passion of mine), that will hopefully lead to academic engagement for me, and maybe even a new adjunct affiliation that I can put on my CV, eventually. I have so many ideas and plans and I need to steady myself and calm down and learn my new environment and find out what my niche is.
But first I’m going to go lie wide awake in bed for about 8 hours.
