#first day of work

Except it’s more physically taxing than mentally taxing. 

I worked for approximately 9 hours today, and I didn’t even do much – I just had to familiarize myself with the tasks that are assigned to me (and others, we take turns) by doing each task at least once. I only had to do two tasks today. The first one consisted of encoding data to a spreadsheet, and the second one consisted of photographing specimens. I know what you’re thinking. They are easy tasks, especially the first one where all I basically have to do is sit down and type. 

BUT the second task though! It’s somewhat frustrating because they had this portable photo studio mounted on a desk. And to be able to place the specimen into the studio I had to stand up on the desk chair, put the specimen in the studio, and then climb back down to take the picture. I did that for maybe 50 times today. It doesn’t sound like a lot but for the past 5 or so years of my life I only had to work (or study) an average 5 hours a day. My feet are sore.

The good news is that my brain isn’t fried (at least not yet). I didn’t really have to think much today, which is cool because I don’t like to think much. But tomorrow we’re supposed to look at the code and structure of the databases and websites, and we might also start coding as well, so I’m a little bit worried about that. I feel like I no longer know how to code. 

Pray for me (to whoever, I’m not picky about gods or goddesses).

When I’m around my coworkers, I get into this weird mode where I’m like, “ok, I haven’t talked for a long time so I shouldn’t start talking now.” Or like, I’ll be starving and kind of light headed, and even though I’m capable, I’m like “I should wait until I’ve eaten to start talking.”
