Settling In

So things at work are going pretty good. I've established some good relationships with other people in the pharmacy. I've missed being part of a team. When you work with the same people all the time in a tiny space you get to know each other pretty well.

Lately I've been able to do a lot of blister packing which is something I love. I'm hoping they will want me to the majority of in the future. That would be ideal for me.

I'm already getting nicknames. Mostly things like "the pep squad" and the "cheering section". I am the person who keeps a calm head in the crazy times and says ridiculously silly things all the time to make people laugh to cut the tension. It's the roll I like to take in the working environment I guess. I like to build good relationships with people I work with.

There are definitely still times when I'm not loving it but overall its starting to get better as I get back into the swing of things. I'm still trying to absorb as much as I can as quickly as possible. These technicians are amazing. The best I've ever worked with. The pharmacists have it made. I'm learning a lot and hopefully in the future I can apply some of these skills to something else because even though I like my job I know pharmacy isn't where I want to be deep inside. It's perfect for this year as I prepare for Australia though.

I'm glad to hear that things are finally working out for you, job-wise.

You sure did have a string of bad luck!

Sounds like this will be a great place for you to stay until your trip to Australia.
