I have my coffee and bus pass on one side of the table, and the massive pile of insurance forms, workplace policy forms and directions to the HR office on the other side and I'm killing some time before I start at my new job today. I am eager, and slightly scared --- what if my co-workers don't like me, what if I suddenly forget how to use SPSS or GIS, what if the food in Downtown is not as good as I remember it. I feel like this is the last days of a hot humid summer, and I'm prepared to be promoted from second to third grade --- Silly feeling, but it will be good to be back at an office on a predictable schedule doing logically coherent things. I have not done that for nine months now and I am looking forward to it.
