My life is completely different to how it was a week ago. I started a new job in a new city and moved into a new house all in the space of about 3 days. That's a lot of new for a person who isn't all that comfortable with new. The house is nice, in a nice quiet area near all modes of public transport. Close enough to the city centre and just a short commute to work. I've met one of my two new housemates. He's a chef from Romania. Nice enough guy. The other girl is moving in next week.
I survived the first week of my new job (just) and am left with mixed feelings. There is a LOT more expected of me in this job than my last. I'm doing things I haven't done since college, and while this is only a good thing in terms of getting good experience, I feel clueless most of the time and it's stressing me out! On top of this, there's the whole first impressions thing- getting to know new colleagues and all that 'but do they like me?' crap.
I just need to remind myself that it'll get better. I'll get used to it. Everything will fall into place. Right?
Easier said than done, though.
