Today was the first day at the new job, and as of this morning I couldn’t decide what to feel.  Nervous?  Excited?  Scared?  Prepared?  I didn’t know.  I only knew the bare minimum of the job description, and had never even been inside the building since I’d been hired based on a phone interview and a recommendation from a friend who already works there.  I woke up early this morning to make sure I had time to shave and eat breakfast and still have a few minutes to sit still before heading off to work for the first time in 8 months.  When I pulled into the parking lot this morning I was ready.  I had every intention of facing the day head on and making it great.

When I first decided to write this blog entry, I had it all planned out what I was going to say.  I thought of so many different things to talk about and different memories to write about, but now that I’m sitting here ready to write it all out, it escapes me.  I’ve been staring at the screen for a few moments with a blank stare, wondering where all of that went.  I’m a pretty open person most of the time; I’d go so far as to say I actually rarely keep anything to myself.  My mouth runs non-stop at any given time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t keep things to myself.  Everybody has things they keep to themselves and share with only a select few, and this is one of those things.  Something I don’t talk about very often because I just don’t know what to say about any of it.  But for the first time, I’m gonna try.  I’ve never really given it much thought, and when I realized that last night it bothered me.  I need to think about it and remember it all.  This will help.  I hope.

Today would’ve been my little sister’s 12th birthday.
