First Day

I have Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" stuck in my head while writing this post from the name of the title. "First things first I'm the realist" So you should probably jam with me while you read this.

Guess who had their first day of real life career work this week?

This guy.
Isn't he so stinking handsome even at 7am? No one should look this cute that early in the morning, so I guess I'm pretty lucky. 

Hal started at EY this week as a real life accountant. Woo-hoo. It's a little weird to not be posting a first day of school post or something. One of us has been in school our entire marriage. 

Does this make us real live adults then?

I hope not.

First days at a new job are infinitely harder than first days at school. There's such a learning curve to a new job. Every company uses different software, and figuring out the office dynamic with your co-workers can be rough no matter how seasoned you are. 

I think we could all use some support when starting a new job. So give some support to this guy for his first week at his first real real real job.

I'll start to get the ball rolling because I know this post will arrive in Hal's inbox and it will give him a little smile after working a 10+ hour day, and then you guys can keep the positivity going. 

Dear Hal, I think you rock. You are incredibly hard working. I know you're a little afraid to finally start your career, but you are so friendly, and you are so smart, and you're not afraid to ask questions; and that's why I know that you're going to do great at your new job. This is a new phase for us in our lives together, and I am so excited to go through it with you, because it's the best to share new experiences with the person you love the most. 

Now let's keep the positive comments going!

Go Hal!! That's exciting, and scary for sure, too, to be the brand-new person. Hope you love this job!

Dear Hal, Yay! I'm going to say "amen" to what Sam wrote. You Do Rock! I'm so proud of you and this is a great way to start your career. You are really cute too... I wish I could fix you a 'Your the Best" dinner to celebrate. I miss you and wish we were there.
