She's Got High Hopes.

My first day went by without a hitch - the people were generally very friendly, my work station was already set up and good to go, and I've already been booked into formal training courses as of next week. Other than the general awkwardness that comes with starting a new job and not knowing anything about everything, I didn't feel completely horrid about my prospects there. In fact, I'm rather excited about it. I can't wait to get up to speed so I can just get on with things, settle in and enjoy myself.

I must say, it's rather nice to come home and not worry about what the next day will bring. That's got to be a good sign, so no complaining from me today. (Gasp!)

Now more importantly, know any primary school teachers in London that need work?

Yay! This is a much better first day report than the last one. I'll take that as a good sign.

I used to teach as well, and I agree - the feeling of coming home without having to plan for for the next day is a GREAT feeling!

Yay for you. Now that I am far too far into the teaching gig, I am also realizing how nice it was to have a job that you could leave at work...

I'm so happy for you that I wish I knew primary school teachers in London. But at this moment, I don't know anyone in London.

Woo hoo!

I have to say, your stuff being all set up already is HUGE! I've started so many jobs where they haven't even ordered me a pen, let alone a computer.
