I'm really happy here. It got a bit during the first few days because I had to get used to staying here all day alone. On my first week here, I must have spent all the free time I had (after work and studies were done) calling people up. I even called people whome I haven't talked to for almost two years. Last week, I watched a Michael Douglas movie (the one where a supposed mental patient goes "I'm not gonna tell, I'm not gonna tell.") and this Monday, I watched AI.
For the first time too, I could listen to any station I wanted and I could play any cd I fancied listening to. There's nothing else but my taste to consider. This is such a blessing for me because I don't really dig the Celine Dion stuff that my former officemates loved to listen to.
The only drawback so far to the job is finding out for myself (and on my own) what things I'm supposed to do and how. The person I replaced wasn't able to give me a detailed briefing because we couldn't schedule a day when we could meet. I was still working full time then and I still had classes every night and all day Saturday. She, on the other hand, already started on her new job and she couldn't just leave the office anytime because she was still doing her training.
I guess this means that for the next few months, I'll be making things up and, hopefully, learning the right way to do things. A mere three weeks since starting, I can now boast of the fact that I know how to renew a business permit and what documents need to be prepared before you can pay business taxes. In the next month or two, I'll have to prep myself on how to compute the income taxes due and how to file the income tax returns for a company. I've been doing this for years but I've seen the forms and it's really different when it's a company that's supposed to do the filing. I just hope I don't mess up too much because this tax thing can really get the company in a lot of trouble if it's not done right.
Next time I talk about the movies I've seen recently.
