1st Day at My New Job

Yesterday was the 1st day at my new job! I am so excited to get started and get used to my new-ish routine. I am not completely sure what the hours will look like or how things are going to work quite yet but hopefully by the end of this short week I will feel a bit more confident!

Last week my new boss reached out and had me answer a few fun questions. I wasn’t expecting this but it was a great way for her to get to know me a little bit better and for my new co-workers to get to know me as well. I figured I’d share them with you and hope you share some back!

What movie could you watch over, and over… and over?

Mean Girls…over and over and over.

What’s your favorite Boston area restaurant?

La Famiglia Giorgio‘s in the North End. Great Italian food in huge portions. Another favorite is Marliave, from 4-6 and again from 9-10 the oysters are half off! I would eat them all if I could.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?

The first Jimmy Buffett concert I went to (I think I’ve been to four) was one of the best nights of my life. I went with a huge group of friends durning a summer that we were all super busy with work. It was a great day and night that we all just got to hang out with each other.

What show do you religiously DVR?

Gilmore Girls. Yes, I have seen every episode ten fifty times. SL says he hates it but I think he is really into Rory and Lorelai.

Did you play any sports growing up? Do you currently?

twin lobster half marathon

Why yes, I did. I played soccer until high school then I cheered from there on out. Actually, I cheered from about 5th grade through senior year in high school. Some of my cheering from (ahem…Mugsy) are still great friends today! If you have been reading this blog for any length of time you now that now I run races…triathlons, 5ks, half marathons, obstacle races…you name it!

Coolest place you’ve ever traveled to?


Iceland…hands down! Check out my post on this amazing trip >> Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Last Day in Iceland.

Such a fun way to start my new job!

Congrats to Tara from Running ‘N’ Reading!

I have been interesting in Energy Bits and appreciate hearing about your experience with them; have thought about buying some but, since they are an investment, I would love to be able to try them first. I usually energize for a workout with a Picky Bar or sometimes a smoothie. Great post!

  2. Congrats on your new job, Emily! I hope things are going well! I like that your new boss asked you these questions; I think that’s a great idea, and a great way to learn more about someone outside the ‘typical’ interview-style questions. Great post!
