After a week on the new job, things seem to be going OK. I won't be running back to my old job just yet. The more I learn about the company, the more I like what they're about. I'm glad I'm going to be a part of what they do.

Still, I'm not feeling connected yet. I keep reminding myself that it took months to feel settled in at my last job. I didn't just immediately know and like everyone there, and I won't immediately know and like everyone at the new place either. Still, it would be nice if I was fast friends with everyone on day one so that I could stop worrying about whether I'm going to find anyone to relate to at work. I can't imagine going through day after day without having a conversation about something that's not work-related. I need personal connection. I can't spend my days in front of my computer or talking about projects without a break every now and then to talk about movies or music or even the weather.

It's going to get better, right?

Yeah, it is hard to meet true friends, but once you do, your work is more fun.

all of those conversations about movies and music and the weather.

providing they allow IM and providing you don't get caught!
