Tidbits from the New Girl at the Office

Once you work somewhere for a while, you kinda forget what made you nervous and scared and happy about being the new person.  Every time I tell a co-worker one of these things, he or she cracks up.  So hopefully, you find this stuff as funny as they do. :o)
**We need to color code the different departments.  Why?  Because I spent 20 minutes wandering around the IT deparment on Wednesday looking for my desk.  Don't worry, I have yet to be late.  THANKFULLY, I'm at the office about 20 minutes before I need to be there.  But when I get to my desk all frazzled, people question me.  I have NO business being in IT.  NONE!
**I love the way heels make me feel.  They make my outfits look better, I carry myself better and I feel pretty.  By the time I get to the cafeteria for lunch in this massive office, I want to put on my slipper socks.  Heels are not my friend at JCP. 
**I sat in a vendor meeting on Tuesday.  I'm 99% sure I was grinning ear to ear the entire time because I've just missed vendor meetings.  I've missed the product, the connection, the importance I feel in the vendor wanting my opinion.  It was so much fun!  I hope I never lose that feeling.  Ever.
**I've always had a badge or some sort of identification at work.  At JCP, you actually have to wear these said IDs.  I seriously thought I had amnesia or short term memory loss when this girl walked up to me and started talking about JCP when I was at Target after work yesterday.  Turns out, I still had my badge attached to my pants and she wanted to tell me how awesome the Skillman store was.  Ha!
**We don't have a dress code at work.  In some ways, it feels like high school.  Every single day, there are people who are dressed down, people who are dressed up and I always feel out of place!  It's gonna take a minute for me to get used to this.  I hate feeling over and under dressed so my mornings are now spent in front of my closet deciding what will make me feel good, rather than sleeping in.  The life of an adult...when I went into the office today, my co-worker said I always look so cute.  I said "Thank God!  This is the 4th outfit I put on this morning!"
