learning to play drinking games

Moving to New York has been an amazing adventure; adjusting to city life and a city budget, trying to figure out where I fit in this oh-so-big city, and making new friends. I have to admit that it has been much less painless than I anticipated it would be.

One of the things that has helped with the transition is that I LOVE my job. I mean…LOVE IT! And, if you’ve ever read any research on job satisfaction, you will know that a big part of it has to do with the people with whom one works. I LOVE my team. I landed with a great boss and a fantastic group. They like to have a good time…and hear is the evidence.

The end of my first week of work just happened to be the date my boss had set for a summer outing to his home on Long Island. This is pretty much what we did on Friday and I have to say that it was a great way to end my first week. I got to meet the broader team and really get to know people. I learned how to play some drinking games (yes, the Mormon girl had never played any before, so this was a new experience for me…I used water…hello). And I realized, while riding the train back to the city, just how lucky I am to be in such a great situation professionally.

Refilling the cups
and it begins
A little pong in actions
just me, the summer intern, and our boss
heading back to the city…all looking slightly thrashed

bueller?... bueller?... bueller?
