The first day at the new job went very well. I was able to get into most of the systems right away, and I was enjoying my new laptop in no time. I was even able to be productive, which is a nice change. my manager seems to be really good, and the guy I’ll be working closest with for a while (Eddy) seems really cool and is a pretty funny guy. I think we’ll get along well. I like a bunch of the little things that add up too: very nice facilities, flexible work schedule, good and cheap food downstairs, cool art on the walls, etc, etc. I do miss my old friends at the old place, but my initial impression is that this will be a good fit.
