Who loves Orientation?!?

Not me!

BUT, I can say this...Since I am in a salary position, I am super excited about how the orientation process is going. (It really isn't)

I have been sitting at a desk (I know..zzzzzzzz) for the past 2 days looking over the Policies and Procedures Manual for the company and fighting sleep. Today, I got to work at 8 am. At 9 am I ran out of things to read. The lady who is supposed to be teaching me the PDA system was at the morning meeting from 9-11 so I basically sat around messing with my phone (reading blogs and commenting on them) and pretending to read the same manual over and over again until around 11:30.
The meeting ended and I still sat around for another 30 min. I suggested that I go home and come back after lunch and she told me to call her at 1:30 to see if she is back in the office by then.
2 hr lunch...paid.

So far. This is my kind of job.

Of course, it's killing me because I can't just sit at a desk for hours at a time and do literally nothing. I need to be out treating patients. But since I'm getting paid regardless....

I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Ooooh, I cannot sit at a desk all day, but sometimes I am forced to.

Right now I am putting together a few training pieces for my sales staff ... any not-boring-as-an-insurance-seminar suggestions for making my training a little less crap-po-palooza and more that-wasn't-so-bad?

Sitting at a desk all day is torture! Unless you have some Internet access...hehe

This is a perfect example as to why I do hair. I'd go insane sitting at a desk all day.

I am having a VERY HARD TIME sitting at a desk. This is the time I really should have taken my ADHD meds but I forgot...well not forgot because I actually really never even thought to.

I... WILL... persevere!
