Yeah, I'll say it. And don't get me wrong, I am loving what I do. But standing on your feet for pretty much 8 hours a day every day, it gets tough. I came home every night last week and was pretty exhausted. I didn't think it would be like this.
Friday was my first day in my actual lab. I didn't expect to go to the lab on Friday, but it was a really good day. I got to meet all of the people I will be working with, which they are all very nice. I actually went to school with one of the girls so that was pretty awesome.
As for the actual work, I think I am going to get the hang of it really quickly. The only snafu is the software we have to use. That thing might be a beast. Plus because the company is an OTC (over the counter) drug producing company, we have FDA checks every so often which means we have to document everything. And I mean everything. They call them Audit reasons.
For example on Friday, we opened a new bottle of reagent. Obviously we opened it because we were out. But we had to go into this beastly software to document that we opened it. And give an Audit reason... umm... because we were out. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, but at this moment, it's looking pretty beastly.
Also, the desk space is a little tight right now, so me and my friend that I trained with are sharing a little cubical. It's a little squished, but I would prefer to share it with her instead of anybody else. We are both so excited to decorate our desk space. I guess we'll have to kind of have our own little side, but that will be okay.
So I know I don't really need to apologize for my lack of post on my own blog, but in case you were wondering... that's the reason. It might be a little more scarce around here until I get into the groove of things at work. Basically I'm asking you to bare with me.
More to come!
