This week was my first week at my new job. It's different being a supervisor and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I've got a lot of work to do and I'm sure a lot of learning is going to happen on the way. I'm kind of glad that I got this new job when I did... there is not much out there for teaching jobs in the area and I think this may help the annual depression that sets in about this time each year and last until mid-September. It's hard not doing what you are passionate about but I think that I could definitely make a career out of banking. It's not my first choice, but it wouldn't be my last choice either.
On a brighter, not so depressing note... I received my new Nook (the BN ereader) in the mail on Thursday and I have already read my first book. The Nook is different than I thought it would be, I think I expected it to be a little more like the iPad but with a better screen for reading and less of the other gadgets. It sure isn't something I'd want to surf the internet on, but in terms of buying books and reading them it is everything I wanted it to be. Since I just got it, I'm sure there are a ton of features that I don't know about yet. So far, I'm not missing the feel/smell of a book...The Nook makes me excited to read!
