GHP, an update

It’s going to be tough to blog for a while as I get used to the new job. The commute is two hours absolutely wasted every day; it was one of the things I dreaded most about the job. Actually, it’s the only thing I dreaded about the job, and it’s gnawing at me. If I want to get home early enough to be useful and/or productive, then I have to leave so early that I can’t get anything done in the morning.

Still, the job is a dream. The people at the DOE are wonderful and helpful, and I have yet to encounter anything that is an insurmountable problem. Of course, I meet with the budget people tomorrow.

Having said that, I will now draw a discreet curtain over my work at the DOE. I have never thought it was appropriate to blog about your workplace, especially about any problems you encounter. That’s what your diary and/or the fireside are for. I reserve the right to brag about cool things or to talk about really positive things, but this is not the place for any whining that I have to do.

Not that there will be any. I’m sure. Ever.

Summary: I’m having a great time learning the ropes.

  1. You may want to consider my chosen commute alternative. The train ride provides good reading time in the morning, eliminates the wear and tear of stop and go traffic, and makes commute duration far more predictable. Having said all of that, I realize the placement of your workplace puts you south of the worst of the traffic.

  2. I do take the train most days, actually. But it’s still putting me home at 6:00, which is a good two hours of labyrinth time that I miss sorely. Ah well, I knew the job was dangerous when I took it.
