Today, was my first day at the Music Department. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Drew walked with me to the Porch to get our $1 coffee. Our girl wasn’t there, who is usually at the window. She wasn’t there on Friday, either. I wanted to say goodbye to her since I will be working at the Music Department. I won’t be able to stop by.
Andrew walked me to my building, which is on 5th Avenue, cater-corner from the Cathedral. I wasn’t really all that excited. I wasn’t sure what to expect.
When I arrived, I called Paula. She came to the door and let me inside the building. She led me into her office, and we chatted a bit about the job, and my responsibilities. The position seemed simple enough. She took me on a tour around the building. The one classroom in the music building, was the old WQED studio, where Mr. Rogers would come to visit, which is pretty cool. One of the professors here, actually worked with Mr. Rogers, kinda cool. She took me to my office, and it is this tiny little room with a door, bookshelves, filing cabinet, and a fancy MAC computer. My office at Katz was so much bigger, and it had a window! The previous temp left me a thin document of the job description and where to find things, along with a set of keys.
My first day consisted of me just reading over the manual, and the e-mails that the previous temp was involved in. I was trying to figure out where she left off, and I begin. I logged into my I-Tunes account, so I could at least listen to Apple Music. They have coffee here it Maxwell House, and it’s not that good. At Katz, they had K-Cups and Keurig. The IT guys came over around 9am and set up my computer, and gave me access to the servers and showed me how to screen share if I want to access my screen, on the front desk computer, while attending to the front desk. There is just not too much going on at all right now, which made for a long day. I only hoped it would pick up.
After work, I met up with Andrew at the Cathedral, and he could tell by looking at me that it was a long day for me. I told him this sucks and I did nothing all day, and I don’t even know who my supervisor is. Even Paula was surprised she didn’t reach out to me. Once we got home, we watched Game of Thornes, and had dinner. I made roast again in the crock pot.
