Link Love: First Day Jitters

First, I want to remind everyone that this weekend, Laura is participating in a knit-a-thon to raise money for food charities. She’ll be knitting for 12 straight hours and you can still help support her efforts. Looking forward to cheering her on from my bench seat.

Second, today is my first day at a new job. I’m nervous to start a new job with new people in a new place. I want to do a good job, be creative and clever and all those things. But… I am also worried about a lot of the dumb stuff that you worry about on your first day too like will there be a place to microwave my lunch or should I bring a salad instead? Do we get a lunch break or does everyone eat at their desk? Should I take anything to put on my desk like, you know, GOOD pens and a nice notebook? And then there’s modern day concerns like which mask should I wear? Plain or something with a pattern that shows a bit of style? I know it’s crazy to worry about this kind of thing but I do. Doesn’t everyone? So, while you all are tucked up at home working in your jammies or going about your daily routine, send me a little good luck mojo. Thanks!
