Gooood morning! It's Tuesday and yesterday was my first day with the Orbit team.
I still feel like I'm walking around in a daze of 'Is this real?' because I feel like I'm in such a perfect place at this point in my life.
Yesterday was full of getting organized and oriented with everything. I'm so excited to be working in a team environment again. I've so missed that!
There's definitely some re-orienting on my end with regard to having a more fixed schedule of when to be fully on and off.
Thankfully, the team is super flexible.
It's so strange to think that it's only been one day since starting. My sneaky brain will try to push more negative thoughts into my consciousness like 'You should know this by now...' or things like that.
But that's false! Anytime any feelings of overwhelm start surfacing, I calm myself right down by reminding myself that absolutely nothing has gone wrong and that I'm exactly where I need to be.
On to Day 2. I'm working on getting my local environment set up - fingers crossed I can get it all up and running this morning!
I'm also going to be learning Ruby, Rails, and SQL. So stay tuned for that!
I'm looking forward to documenting this experience <3
