Can I have just one more day?

Well, today is my last day as a free-wheeling, unemployed ar-TEEST because at 7:30am tomorrow, I begin my new job. I'm filled with a mixture of blinding fear, excitement and a little bit of gas, the latter of which probably has more to do with the giant bowl of edemame I just ate for breakfast than my new job. Anyway, I've spent my last morning of freedom sleeping in, eating soybeans, watching the E! True Hollywood Story on Lionel and Nicole Richie and downloading dancehall reggae from iTunes. (WAIT. If Jeff is reading this, then honey, I spent the morning cleaning the house.) I'm actually quite nervous as to what lies ahead for me. I've spent the last 4 years either working for myself, temping or working somewhere part-time while I've been in school, so it's been hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that this is a long-term full time gig. This is some grown-up shit right here. Hold me.

You're going to be great! But still enjoy the last day of freedom.

Why was I thinking you start next week? Anywhoo, I remember when I first got out of college and got a "real" job. It took a few months for the novelty to wear off and then I remember a distinct feeling of dread when I realized that I was going to have to get up and do this every day FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. It was a horrible, horrible feeling when I made that realization. And the interesting thing is that even though I've been out of college going on 19 years now (jesus, I'm old), I occasionally (um, A LOT) still have that feeling of dread. So I guess what I'm saying is prepare yourself for that, but otherwise I'm sure you'll do great and they're going to love having you. Until you break out and make cakes and I come and be your marketing manager, that is.
