New job on Wednesday

Happy Beltane/Walpurgi’s Night people!
Just like last year I’ve lit a tiny Beltane fire (i.e. a candle in a lantern) on the balcony. But no drink. So far.

Imaginary Karin - Walpurgis night 2012

In other news, that I think I’ve already mentioned on Twitter, I’ve got a new job! :yay:
I’ve spent the last 2 years working at a small local advertising agency but a while ago I got an offer I couldn’t refuse from another agency in town. Basically the same job I have now, screwing around with websites and stuff, but at a bigger agency for a bigger salary.
I already have a friend working there (who I think had a great deal to do with me being offered the job ;) ) and I’m acquainted with a few others so they’re not all strangers, but I’m still a little nervous. This is not just some random job – this could actually be a proper career! Ye gods… :oops:

One problem I can see already is that I’ll get a Mac computer since that’s what everyone else there has. I’ve never used a Mac! At least not for anything beyond opening a web browser. This will be… interesting.

Another thing is that this is a much bigger company so there will be a lot more potentially allergic people around, which mean I won’t be able to bring Zaphod there. At least not all the time like I’ve done at the old job. Oh well, I know being able to bring your dog to work is a privilege and not something to be expected.
It was fun while it lasted.

Anyway, wish me luck on Wednesday! I’ll try to not go full Socially Awkward Penguin on them.

Think I’m gonna go have that drink now. Cheers!

    Congrats on the new job and good luck! I’m sure you’ll do great.

    The good thing about Macs is that they’re made for people who have never used them to be able to pick up on them pretty easily. And you’re obviously good with computers, so you should have no trouble.

    Aw, it sucks that you won’t be able to bring Zaphod anymore, but it sounds like a great opportunity so I’m sure he’ll understand. ;)

    Congrats on the new job! That’s great that it’s a bigger salary :D I’m not familiar with Macs either. Most people at my work use them too, but I’m one of the odd ones out with a Windows laptop. I hope everything goes well at your new job!

    Oh congratulations on your new job!! That is so amazing. It sounds perfect. Hopefully you will be able to turn it into a career one day :D

    Don’t be worried about the Mac thing!! You should totally take the leap and jump into the world of apple. You will not regret it. I have worked with both mac and windows for years. I much prefer Macs. So much safer and so many more features. I LOVE my mac so much :rock:
