So today was my 3rd day at my new job. . .At
I'm the assistant store manager and I'm already having a great time. A job I'm qualified for and good at AND that I enjoy at the same time? Is this truly possible? Aparently!!!!! Trust me, I still hardly believe it myself!
Possibly the best long-term benefit of this job is that I'm not sitting in front of a computer killing my wrists for 10 hours a day. The last 3 weeks I've typed so little that my hands hardly hurt at all, it's a wonderful change and I hope it stays this way! Anyone who's ever worked in a LYS can tell you that you hardly get to knit at all in the store, so my knitting time isn't increasing but my computer time is definitely down significantly.
The only negative aspect is the commute -- a bus and then two subways, takes an hour to 1.5 hours. I'm sure I'll get used to it but it's quite a change from jumping into your car whenever you feel like it.
