After waking up late and biking almost 9 miles, I got to the office 5 minutes until they were about to close for the day (they only do this from 8-12, Mon-Fri). It didn't take long, though - gave them my paperwork, passed the test, had my nasty picture taken and paid them $10, all in about 20 minutes. I now have a City of Austin Chauffeur's License to drive for Austin Bicycle Cabs, with a blurry picture of me on it. And, again, if you need a job and like to bicycle, they're still looking for people.

I start tonight at 8:00PM. I have a remnant of that uneasiness and fear, but it's pretty small now, and I'm able to cover it up because I'm somewhat excited. I don't think most of you realize this, but this will the first job I've EVER had that wasn't computer related. Ever. I've never done anything except work with computers. I started working at age 16 in computer stores, then tech support, then programming, then network and system administration, more computer stores, on-site support...I've done a lot in the IT industry. So, if you think my nervousness makes me out to be some sort of wimp, maybe this explains it a bit.

Now, off to get some food at Taco Cabana, then I'm going to relax and maybe nap a bit. I'll be up until after 3:00AM tomorrow morning.

I was thinking just the other day that I too have never had a job that didn't directly involve computers.

I'm such a geek.

Yeah. I hate being so narrow in my job experience. It's caused me no end of problems.

Hope it goes really great for you. You totally deserve something working out for once.
