Adjusting To The New Job Routine

Reading newspaper has been a habit to me. But before I go to the news, I read the horoscope first (smiles). I was stunned with what I read my horoscope stated in the Coffee News:

(Jan. 21-Feb. 19)
“Small changes in your job routines are likely. Although you may wish to stick with what has worked in the past, you may have to adjust to a different set of conditions.”

This relates to the job I am in right now. Everything is new…the job field, working environment, co-employees, the system, and even the rate of pay. I used to do office works in my previous jobs. In fact, I worked in the Accounting departments before. Truly I wanted to stick with the nature of work I did in the past but it does not make sense to me now because the job competition here is very high. I am so thankful to be hired in the retail company. And yes, there are different set of conditions that I have to follow. Besides working at day time on weekdays, I have to work on the assigned schedule which includes working in the evening and on weekends too. It is a big adjustment, really.

The Trip To OK

It was great to hear from my cousin Emz again. She called me this morning and we talked over the phone for 45 minutes…almost an hour. Gosh! Emz was excited about their trip to Oklahoma yesterday. Her husband drove all the way back and forth because she does not know how to drive yet. They passed by the bridge over the Red River (Oklahoma-Texas border). I asked if she saw some beautiful scenery along the way to their destination. She said yes.

Boy, just the thought of it makes me want to go there again. It is a long drive but it is fun. I thought of going back to Oklahoma again some time soon.

Anyway, Emz and her husband had the fun of taking pictures at the Welcome Centers of Oklahoma and Texas. They got some souvenirs too. Like me, she likes traveling. I am happy that Emz is getting adjusted to Texas weather and environment.
