So orientation is tomorrow. Goody. I can't hardly wait. I am sure this is going to be a long, boring process that people with stupid questions will make longer, but I'll get to that in a moment.
Right now I love how uninformed I am. For instance, do I need to bring anything tomorrow? I don't know. One of the things on the agenda for instance is Teacher Certification, whatever that means. Obviously I do not have my temp yet because I just got the job for good on Friday and I haven't had a chance to send away for anything. Should I bring my Statement of Eligibility? I don't know. I probably will anyway. Or how should I dress? I've been to quite a few orientations in my life and some really didn't care how you showed up, and others had rules for that. I guess I could just go with khaki's and a shirt to be safe. But I really don't like to wear that, and I don't want to wear em if I don't have to, or even worse, be the only one dressed like that.
Ok, so since I have a letter that says what we'll be doing and how long we'll be doing it, it might be interesting to go over that.
First is check in... for 15 minutes. I'd bet ANYTHING it takes twice as long, unless there is a not many people scheduled to be there. Next is personnel processing for an hour. Whatever that means exactly. Then payroll for 15 minutes... should be easy enough but I can totally see 100 stupid questions here. After that is 45 minutes for certification. Not really sure what that means either but I guess I'll find out. I'm going to bring my SoE just in case, and then pray there is no BS, haha. Then we get a 15 minute break, yay. Finally 90 minutes to discuss benefits. If it's anything like any other benefit meeting I've ever been to, at least 30 minutes or that time will be to answer stupid questions. I can see it now, "Duhhhhhh, if I get health insurance does that come out of my paycheck?" No, it's free dumbass! Well... never mind.
Anyway, I am so not looking forward to this, but I'm sure I'll get through it. Hopefully everything goes smoothly and I won't have anything to stress out about for the next two days before I start work. This is all new to me and yes I do wonder how exactly I am going to do/handle everything but I'll manage I'm sure. Hopefully I'll do a great job. :p
