My new job

Many of you were there last Dec to give me words of encouragement when I was looking for a job and then more encouragement when I switched to my current job.
I just wanted to tell everyone Thank You!!!!
My current position is a podiatrist assistant, I have never done anything like this in my life and although the first couple of weeks were rough and I was not sure I was going to be able to do the job or like it, I love the job and even though it's taking a lot to learn all the medical codeing and how their computer system works I seem to be doing very well. The Drs have both told me I'm doing a very good job and the other assistant told me that the Dr called her into his office and told her he was impressed with me!!!! YAY for me. I'll tell you one thing that boosted my low self esteem a lot.
Anyway, Thank you to all who had kind and encourageing words for me, they gave me the boost to try even when I was scared I'd fail.

I wasn't a member then, but you sound happy. Good for you. You do a better job when you like what you do, it's easier getting up in the morning, and those "atta boys" sometimes mean as much as the paycheck and sustain you.
Thanks for sharing.

ya see, all it took was getting your foot in the door, then stomping out the competition.

you could have gotten a job in a market, or you could have just stayed home. you could have worked in a deli slicing roast beef, or maybe none at all. but i will say that "we we we" are very proud of you.

finding a new job is a feat not easily accomplished...
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

That is so good to hear Mikki.
