First day on the job 2

Yesterday was my first day on the job, the first such occasion in 5 years and 4 months when I started at the bank. It was quite the cultural difference to work in a small high-tech firm. People wearing jeans, the pool table, the free pop and snacks and the dual 19 inch flat screen monitors. I was also quite surprised to see one of the Directors cracking open a beer in the office at 4:30PM to celebrate the 2 new hires at the office. Everyone is in their 20′s and 30′s and the people are great. I’m going to enjoy working there.

When I got home I finally got around to patching up the hole in my drywall; the result of the housewarming party I threw a month ago. I cut out a piece of drywall from under the stairs in order to patch up the hole near the bathroom. As I predicted, there is a lot of empty space under the stairs that could act as storage, since space is pretty tight in the loft and a locker wasn’t included with it. So now I just need to cut the hole bigger and install a hinged door as an entry into my newly discovered closet space. I was also considering removing all the drywall under the stairs so the stairs would appear to be “floating”. I’ve seen this in another unit in my building and it looks pretty funky.

Suggestions anyone?

    While I don’t work in a high-tech firm, some of the characteristics you describe of your new workplace sound very similar to those in my workplace – and your sentiments are exactly what I love about my office too.

    Congrats again on the new job – I’m glad you feel comfortable and excited about your new workplace and its climate. It sounds great.
