I’m putting my novel back into Scrivener today. At least then I’ll be able to write on my phone when needed.

New symptom: Headache

I still don’t have a fever, though, so that’s promising. I think.

Being tested on Sunday. God damn. Today just keeps getting better and better πŸ˜’

HR from new job called. There was a positive COVID test from the kid who sat in front of me. We’re all quarantined for two weeks. Assuming there are no further positive tests, in-class training resumes 10/1. They’re trying to find a way for us to do it from home. Whether we’re able or not, we get paid for the two weeks.

And now we have a three-hour lab. All crammed into a small room. Awesome πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜’

There are at least three people in my training class with dry coughs and other COVID-like symptoms.

We have to do self checks before coming to work, and I guarantee most people lie when answering the questions online.

I feel so safe πŸ˜’

I learned some fun things about my new job this week:

- I earn a shift differential of $0.75, meaning I’ll actually be making $17.25 an hour once I start taking calls at the end of October. For now, it’s $16.50.

- My cable and Internet will be free.

- My benefits are AMAZING.

- I can purchase an AppleTV through my employer, if I ever want one (for $8/ month for 24 months or $180 outright).

- Spectrum Mobile might actually be much better than I had previously thought.

My new job offers tuition reimbursement up to $5,250 a year. I might take advantage of this.

First official day of training at my new job tomorrow. It’s going to be strange working from 2-11pm Sunday through Thursday until the end of October. After that, it’s 2-11pm Friday through Wednesday until my death or the apocalypse. Whichever comes first.

I start my new job tomorrow. I’m excited and nervous. Kinda thought the nervousness thing would go away as I got older. Nope.
