Show up, get right to work. I'm behind on a lot of things because we've been interviewing candidates all week for a tech position in my department. This department, by the way, is expanding a bit now that I'm here. A great and diverse group of people, which is probably why I was attracted to it in the first place. We have a nacho cheese machine. It's quiet, dormant, waiting to be satiated with a "cheese" product in order to satiate us. For today, meetings, meetings, some actual work, and playing with systems. The last part is what I'm learning is my passion here and in manufacturing. How do the systems work, how do they work with other systems and with the people they directly impact. What does the back-end look like. The knowledge base is seemingly endless.

Got the news that my new title is being finalized as we speak and I should have the offer and paperwork and all of that soon.

Anyway, I'm in a meeting as we speak and ready to scream at the length of time these projects take. Followed by another meeting. Followed by another meeting. Happy Wednesday...
