Hey!! I know it's been too long. I've been wanting to write for over a week but I've been buzy and, well, lazy.
In the last week, I've been thinking alot about my new job. And not only thinking about it, but started it. (Woot woot!!)
I met with my supervisor on Friday, and she introduced me to everyone we could find in the building, and that's a lot of people. I don't remember most of the names and even some faces are blury. After walking for a while around in the labyrinth that is now my workplace, I was given 2 huge 4" binders full with documents for me to read. In the afternnon I was left to my own devices with my binders and a short list of names of people I needed to see. Everyone is very nice and helpful, especially when I randomly asked where I could find the people associated with the names on my list. I ended the day with a saturated brain, an exhausted body and a happy mood.
Yesterday and today were dedicated to more reading and some training on the different systems. Today I saw a client at home, wrote my recommendation, faxed it, wrote my progress note and did my stats. All for the first time as an occupational therapist. It also means that I signed as an OT for the very first time. It really is starting to sink in: I'm a health care professional. I'm an OT.
I'm starting to feel like a grown-up: working and making money (not quite yet, but soon enough I'll get my first pay cheque), driving to and from work, signing paperwork without it needing to be co-signed. I have an office (well, a cubicule actually, that will change once the person I replace leaves, as I'll be taking over her cubie, which has a window), my own phone extension. I don't have a computer yet (will get that once I move) or a work email (it'll come... eventually... I hope).
I have more to talk about, and pictures, but it's not work related. Yes, it's yarn related. Tomorow maybe.
