easter-egg-jonesEaster was a nice pick-me-up.  It felt good seeing the family.  It felt even better having a job when I saw the family.  I hate showing up to those things while I’m unemployed.  The guilt always gets to me.

Maybe it’s a guy thing.  I just can’t stand not having a job.  It’s not even the fact that I’m not contributing something to society.  It’s more that I’m wasting all the talent my guidance counselors said I was hiding.  Did they have to tell everyone that they were special?  I’ve spent the past 5 months figuring out what I don’t want to do.  I’m glad that’s over with.

I’m adjusting to the new routine at work.  I didn’t make as many mistakes as I did on Friday.  Yay, I’m not completely useless!  I think I’ll be up to speed by the end of the week.  After all the training we went through, it seems the job really just boils down to 2 or 3 key concepts.  I don’t know why they said they were looking for college grads on the application.  I think anyone with a high school diploma could probably get the job done (and they’d probably work harder, too).

I’m really not sure how valuable I am to the company.  Since I’ve been there, I’ve heard my coworkers talk about at least 5 people who were fired left within the past week.  Unfortunately, there will be another large wave of layoffs soon.  Sign of the times I suppose.  Except they keep hiring more people.  I guess they’re just picky.  Kind of like a kid spitting out all the jellybeans he doesn’t like.

My trainer seems distant.  I hope I didn’t freak her out last week.  I should probably patch things up with her.  I don’t want things to be awkward.  Of course, I’d rather have her think that I’m some sleezeball than a nice guy.  How twisted is that?  “You’re a nice guy” is one of the worst insults you can throw at someone.
