I just finished my second day of work at my new job, and I’m pretty sure I can say that I’m really going to like it. It’s basically everything I like doing and pretty much nothing I don’t, in a relaxed atmosphere with nice, undemanding people and zero corporate bureaucracy.
I’m writing for a site called EHR Intelligence, which is news and information for healthcare providers about the long, involved process of switching over to electronic health records. It doesn’t sound very interesting, but it kind of is. Surprisingly, there’s a lot to learn and a lot of issues to talk about.
I’m writing two or three articles a day, which is challenging but doable, and I’m feeling good about the whole thing. Hopefully (knock on wood), I’ll be able to get into a rhythm that suits me, figure out my complex breakfast issues and my not-so-stellar commute, and be one of the very, very lucky few who has a job they enjoy.
Also hopefully, I’ll be able to conquer NaNo this year. I’m certainly writing about 1600 words a day, but they’re not supposed to be fictitious. I’m going to try to get back into doing my own writing in the latter half of this week, after I’ve fully adjusted to waking up at the crack of 7:15 in the morning (you don’t know how hard this is for me).
But tonight I’m going to watch last night’s episode of Castle and finish crocheting something to keep me warm in the office, because of course I’m the only one who’s freezing all the time. Settle, settle down.
[Update: Gasp! There was no episode of Castle last night. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to watch something else.]
