Classified Second Day

Did I call the first day intense? It comes to nothing compared to the second day. I have totally taken crazy iniative, throwing myself into taking training by fire (as in, I've barely any formal training) and my boss loves my results.

Unfortunately, hanging out at a booth alone promoting the company, I got pretty drained by the end of the night. The boss had to talk me up and get me motivated over the cell phone when I got off the shift. Still, I've provided some good results, getting more than the high average amount of people interested in the company.

After the last couple days, though, I can understand the need for sensitivity when writing in the blog while working for a big corporation.

For now, though, I'm too tired and zonked out to say much more. Suffice to say, though:

1) I have gotten a job that started Sunday and

2) If I progress in my skill at the same pace that I have over the past couple days, I may make a comfortable amount of money while also working on the social skills.

3) As for Ikea, that place makes me sleepy, tired and exhausted.

Dang -- I just wrote you a nice long comment but got denied by your server. I will summarize:
1) Glad you took the job and are trying!
2) As all sales jobs go, unless you're an extroverted extrovert naturally, it's tough to do it for the long term but I wish you luck either way!
3) I so do NOT understand what you mean about Ikea. Plus, their cafeterias are awesome.

And Ikea just overstimulates me way too much. . ..
