What a life...

So I really enjoyed my vacation last week...i woke up incredibly late (around 12pm) everyday then went to the gym first thing in the morning... :) That was my pretty much my life for about 5 days or so...

I started my job on the 9th...and so far I really, really like it! I have my own office (with a door and a view), my name plate is right outside to the right of my door (if you are facing it), I was given a laptop - IBM T42, and ... in my laptop bag I found the following items: extra battery for my laptop, a travel size mouse, and a spare charger. :)

To top it all off...I LOVE these guys!!! They set up my laptop with Firefox...what a bunch of pals...it's like they knew...haha...all in all...everything is great so far!!!

On my first day I was given what I will be doing for the month...hehe...apparently I might be travelling in a couple of weeks so today I filled out my application for my corporate credit card :D

Also I signed up for my health plan too...and it is really cool! I only pay $252 a year and the company basically sets up a pool with $1000 which it draw from to pay for any prescriptions and medical bills I incur...the reason I say that is really cool is because I barely go to the doctor! And preventive care, such as annual physicals, are covered 100% and do not come out of the pool of money. :) So I pay $252 a year to have my prescription and any such covered...which is awesome!!! If I had signed up for something else it could cost me up to $600 a year...so I am saving quite a bit of money. I also signed up for my 401K of course...and am rolling over my Gillette 401K :) hehe...I am really excited!

Be sure to rotate batteries, they don't like to sit around unused.
