Today is my "virtual Friday". One of the benefits I negotiated with my new employer was a four day work week....and today was day four.
Yesterday was by far the most difficult of all the days. Because I want to keep it real, here on my blog, I'm admitting that it was a very difficult day. So difficult that by 10:30 am I was in tears.
I've never cried at a job before (unless I was very happy, or sad I was leaving). Out of the blue...it happened, the tears welled up, and overflowed, right there in front of the woman training me (who I'm replacing). Plain and simple: I was tired. I felt very stupid and incompetent. I had been getting information pumped into my brain for the past 2 days/8 hrs a day. They were talking about how much more I had to learn (like "doing" the contracts with the lawyer). I had only "touched" on all that I was to know. So, I kinda, sorta, lost it.....temporarily.
