New Year, New Job, New Me?

Published January 7, 2013 by Malia

I did it!  I survived my first day as a full time employee!  I don’t think I’ve ever been hired as a full timer (I worked full time for about 2 months in a previous job, but I don’t like to think about those days).  I feel odd.  I feel like I’ve achieved some step towards being an adult. Yikes!

I spent most of my first day reading a giant OSHA manual, and then doing loads of computer OSHA things.  OSHA is mostly common sense, but I feel that they write out things the most confusing way they can think of.  Anyway, after I learned all about how I can catch evil things from blood if I’m not properly handling it, and all about how to get electrocuted, I got to actually go in the lab!  I ended up doing chores, but I didn’t care.  I was in scrubs and a lab jacket, and I was in a real life professional lab!  Ever since I was in tech school, I’ve been fascinated by the lab side of medicine.  Getting to work in one has kind of been my personal Holy Grail.  I have many dreams, and I feel so blessed to actually be getting to have one come true.  Especially after so many years of heartbreak and disappointment.

Also, to document that my first day, I decided to take a picture of myself showing I was ready to head off into my future!  003

I’m not sure what expression that is on my face.  Unfortunately, this was the best of the crop of photos I took.  However, I really, really, love the scrub top I have on.  I’m so excited that I can wear fun and pretty scrub tops to this job.  There’s so many beautiful tops out there, and the last job I had that I wore scrubs for, I had to wear pretty blah ones all the time.  I now have a whole assortment of pretty tops that I’m excited to wear!
