Just a little update!

As you probably are aware, I started a new job on Monday. I am very, very excited about it. I am working as an administrative assistant for one of my most favorite photographers, Aaron at Eye Wander Photo. (Pretty sure he is my top fave now. Since i work there. Probably a rule, or something. Which is no problem, because he's awesome.)

I've been there two days & I have a LOT to learn! But I am enjoying it so far. And i think it will only get better as time goes by.

There's Aaron, the owner. He is goofy, crazy, hilarious, friendly... and also a successful business owner. He is super talented. Very creative. His wife, Jency, is an actress, and she also teaches acting classes in the studio. She is so sweet - i hit it off with her right away. Love her! :) Then Sheila, Aaron's mom, who does the bookkeeping, assists with photo shoots, and a lot more. And Katie, who is his editor. I really like Sheila & Katie as well. Sheila is so nice! And Katie cracks me up. She is cute & has kind of a sarcastic sense of humor. Which i like.

And now? I have joined the Eye Wander Photo team! I am going to be doing a lot of what Aaron & his mom are doing already. Kind of taking a lot of that load off of them, hopefully! (That's the goal!)

There is also Lily. How could I forget Lily?! Lily is Aaron's dog. She is SO SWEET & i love her. :) 

Right now i am a bit overwhelmed. There is so much i just DO NOT KNOW. And i can't know unless someone shows me. And it's hard for Aaron to show me because he has SO MUCH going on. But hopefully we get it all straightened out so i can get some work done & free up Aaron's time so he can work on the creative aspect more & the administrative side a little less!

I am also getting used to this new schedule. And i think that has my extra stuff, like blogging, a little out of whack right now! But i'll get there! ;)

Some things i know for sure about the job: 

-I really, really like each person that is on the Eye Wander Photo team. Definite plus!

-Everyone eats there. Which helps me to pack a lunch & eat there instead of spending money or risking making poor food choices by going out all the time. 

-It's crazy. Hectic. And different every day. This is a good thing for me! (I like crazy, hectic, different-every-day type jobs!)

-I don't go in until 9:30 AM. I am REALLY LIKING having the extra time in the mornings! So far i have gotten up & taken my time in getting ready. I am still able to make myself breakfast & pack a lunch. I even am sometimes able to do a little cleaning (on Monday i did the dishes, today i did some laundry). This has never happened before, and i am often too tired to clean in the evenings after work! So this is a great thing!). However, i do need to start going to the gym before work. I just think there is no excuse to not go to the gym in the morning when you don't have to go in until 9:30! Also,

-The gym is exactly 2 miles from my new workplace. EXACTLY. 

So that's really all i can say right now! And if you think of it, please pray for me! I don't want to be a nuisance there! I want to learn things quickly. VERY quickly! So that Aaron doesn't have to spend too much time teaching me, and so i can just sort of take over the things that i need to take over. Right now i am slightly overwhelmed, and having to wait to do anything until i can get Aaron to show me how to do it - well... i'm over that! And I am sure he will be too, if he's not already!

Hope you are all having a good week! :)
