37.29 – Hectosity

Yes, hectosity.  Sounds like: heck-toss-it-ee.  Definition: a state of your day being so hectic that at 5pm you are curious where the heck the day went.

Today. Was.  Hectosity.

Before I get to that, though, I wanted to show you this website.  Fly.

I’ve been at my job for just under two months now and the best way I can describe it is information overload.  There are about ten systems upon which I have had crash courses.  It’s challenging though, and I like that.  In the last week or so, we’ve been chatting about certain systems that we want to put in place, one of which I get to lead.  Today was something along the lines of……BOMBARDMENT!  But oh how sweet it was.

I actually needed a few more hours in the work day today and would have gladly worked them.  Most of the day was spent in meetings.  First, a ‘heads up’ type meeting that we’re going to get crushed on Monday.  Next, chatting with a vendor and a co-worker about what will henceforth be known as “TheProject”.  I foresee a lot of meetings with a lot of people to get this the way everyone wants it.  TheProject is officially now my baby.  When I came back from lunch, there was a huge (and when I say huge, I mean more than 4’x5′) relational diagram draped over my monitor, keyboard, and chair.  TheProject is going to be so much fun.  Last, a web demo/conference with the earlier vendor, the vendor doing the demo, a couple co-workers, and the director of our department.  I was all kinds of sitting quietly and listening until I had a good question.  Boom!  I unleashed that bad boy and got kudos from the earlier vendor and the director.  That meeting was full of win.

I’m actually enjoying my job.  Who’da thunk it?

Also, whilst my goal is to blog daily, I just don’t think I’m going to make it tomorrow.  We have a social event directly after work that will run past midnight.  I suppose that one day won’t be the end of the world.

Well now, I think I’ve talked your ear off enough for tonight.  Have a great Friday!  Go to happy hour or something but always have a designated driver.  Be safe!  See you on Saturday.

Say What?
