Man, all the red tape that they make you go through to get something practical done at work is crazy! I'm finally all moved in. Came out of no where but it's done. It doesn't look very different than my other cubicle, except it faces north instead of south. I was in limbo with my stuff in a different empty cubicle and me working with an empty desk and a computer. I would have to get up for tissue, then a piece of gum, then my brush, then my mirror... CRAZY I tell you! I could have moved in the first day they said I was moving but there is a specific department that is supposed to move your hardware cuz if you break it, I guess you get fired or something.
I think I'm going to miss working NIGO full-time. I realized that yesterday when I was writing letters. There is something very satisfying with tangible work. You can see your progress in the stacks of letters we produce every day. When I'm in processing I don't get to see my progress in a tangible form. But I am excited about learning something new. I will get to know a new group of people better and this job proves that the more you know the faster you can move up the ladder. I think I start training next week. So we'll see.
Oh, and a side note: I wrote to the lady in charge of the Second Chance prom. She wrote back the next day and said that she would contact the photographer and see why we haven't received our "sweetheart photo". We've been going back and forth and I now have the phone number for the photographer. Hopefully it won't be long until I have the photo. And the lady said that she would go through her pictures and see if she took any candid shots of my husband and I. Just wanted to let you know that I don't have just sitting on a shelf. I will post it as soon as I get it. (See, I should have brought my phone in, I'd at least have those pictures!)
