New Office

Moving into a new office is fun, it's worrisome, and it's getting lost more than a few times.

The fun comes in having something new to look forward to and the fun of playing in new space, full of promise and renewal. Promise and renewal come from a new office seen as a fresh start, a re-commitment to your work ethic. An examination of what you do and why you do it.

The worrisome part is not knowing what you are going to get until you arrive on that first day. Will your office be decent? Will it be as nice as your peers? What about new furniture? Will everything you packed arrive? Will it arrive in good shape?

Getting lost is to be expected. Personally, I couldn't find the men's room after the first morning, and it had not been moved. I took a wrong turn getting out of the complex on day 1. I missed the office parking lot on day 2.

All in all, it's been fun, it's been a needless worry, and getting lost is part of the experience. I like my new office space and will work hard in it!
