Well as promised here is an update of my first day! The work is fairly mindless, basically copying information from one form to another. I know it does not sound that interesting, but I must say that it is a welcome change from the pace that I have been used to going at. The hours are great and the people I work for are awsome. On Friday the branch manager took me and Victoria out for lunch and then later the Head Office people were visiting from Vancouver and had a Chirstmas party for us. We all stopped work at 3pm and spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying a chocolate fountian and hot appy's. They even offered each employee wine! (needless to say I did not have any). Everyone at the office assured me that this party was not a regular occasion and warned me not to get used to it :) I start my first full week tommorow, who knows what other surprises are in store.
"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
