So work’s been workish. The person that I thought was going to be my immediate supervisor is not, it’s actually someone else (who’s pretty much a stone throw away from where my cubicle is). Last year, my supervisor (who was whom i thought was going to be my supervisor this year) was very hands off in terms of my working time. I was only really expected to check in whenever issues arose or if I was finished something or if I needed approval (or more access into various programs). This year? My supervisor comes by twice a day (without fail, so far) to ask me how my progress is. Super nice, very helpful whenever I need to pick his brain for information, but I literally jumped in my chair on Friday when he came up and asked me how my progress was… progressing. I was trying to locate a specific stock code in a very long 21-page list of stock codes (and I lost my spot, hah). And when I mentioned how many pages I had finished going through (plus a smattering of other pages), he tells me that I’m going faster than expected. (And here I thought I was going slow.)
Such is the life of a girl who does data entry.
My desk is no longer boring though! Besides the computer, the keyboard, a really gross and sticky mouse (that I spent nearly 20 minutes cleaning with mildly soapy water while it was off). Toadette is currently sitting next to my computer (photo here!) and so is one of my WALL-E figurines. A Blythe photo or two might end up on my cubicle wall (it has walls that double as bulletin board material – with a very drab grey material over it). It will be a long summer with just plain walls, so I’m hoping to decorate it up a bit.
