A Week of Reviews and My First Business Trip!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

This past week I had my first performance review.  Even though I had been repeatedly told I was doing a good job, I couldn't help but be nervous.  The past few months have been such a learning experience for me.  I feel like I am constantly on the verge of screwing up but I've managed to pull through each time and apparently no one has noticed the terrified look I often have on my face.

Our department's quarterly review, which was today, also went great.  Everyone has worked hard and management only had good things to say to us all.  It makes me really appreciate the opportunity I got to work with this company.  It is a world of difference from my last job where fear and intimidation were the norm.

After all the positive talk in the reviews my other manager came over and asked if I wanted to take a trip down to Washington, D.C.!  I probably got a little too excited.  I will only be going for two days and I will be working for most of that time but this will be my first ever business trip.  I feel like such a real person.  It will definitely be a new type of "wandering" for me.

We have a few offices down there with people that I work with on a daily basis but I have never seen in person.  I have ideas in my head of what I think everyone looks like and I'm worried this is going to be like when the first cast images of the Harry Potter kids were released and I was furious that they looked nothing like what I imagined.  Especially for my one coworker that I picture to have a big curly afro.

Probably not what my coworkers look like.
Anyway, that is not for a few weeks.  I still have another large snow storm to get through before I can even start looking forward to that!
