Well, I have made it through my first 3 weeks of work! I really like my job, and I have been doing very well. I have finished all my initial trainings (except for one which I will finish that one Monday-Tuesday) so last week I got my own case load; I was very excited about that! Thankfully, all of my co-workers seem nice, and they help me out with any questions I have. Trying to fit in with new co-workers was actually what I was most nervous about, because in my line of work, it's mostly women-you know how catty and mean some women are! But, so-far-so-good!

Well, I have had an eventful couple of days that have left me with some serious mixed emotions. Remember the job interview I had about 2 weeks ago? It went really well, and the guy interviewing me pretty much told me in so many words that if my background check came back okay, then I had the job. They had me come in a few days later and "shadow" for an hour to see if I liked the job- I loved it! Working with developmentally disabled people is just such a rewarding, fun job! All the people and my soon-to-be co-workers seemed to like me right from the start. So, as I was driving home after shadowing, I was feeling excited about starting a new job, and making some extra money for my family.
