Tomorrow, I have to start being a grown-up forever! I start my first real, "big girl" job bright and early.
It's the next of the many steps I've taken to create the career of my dreams. My title is "Software Engineer," which, in basic terms, means that I'm a programmer. I'm a little nervous, but I always am before I start something new. I keep telling myself, "This time next week, I will have survived a whole week of working there!" which somehow makes me feel better!
They're serving us breakfast and lunch tomorrow, which I think is pretty awesome. I've never worked for a place that bought me food before. It's one of the many perks of landing this position
Some of the other perks being: my own desk (after training, of course), a substantial salary, full benefits, and I'm fairly certain I'll make some new friends there. That's one great thing about working in IT for me, I usually meet people with similar, nerdy interests
It's going to be very tough to juggle my full time job with my startup business though. The business accelerator is still going on right now, so I've got to keep up with that as well. Just in this first week of work, I have three nights that are full of startup business stuff. It's going to be exhausting, yet exhilarating. And my bestie
is so supportive, I know she'll help me survive it all!
We're meeting all kinds of influential people, not only in Cincinnati (where we're from) but in a couple other cities as well. It's only been four weeks since the start of the accelerator, and we've already learned so much! It's been difficult and very fun at the same time.
One off-topic thing, but I entered my first dA contest! I'm excited to see all the other great entries; I keep going back to the contest page to see if anyone else has submitted anything. Here's what my entry looks like:
One last thing,
