Hello, blog readers!
Here I'd been wondering what to post on the blog, because I wanted to post SOMETHING. I had been planning to go with "Hi. I like soup. Do you like soup?" However, that seemed a bit dull, so I perused the Cask of Blog forum, and lo! A Question of the Day was suggested, and I saw that it was good.
That said, daily seems like I'd get a bit strained after a few weeks, and so I plan to make this a weekly thing.
So far, the question I've been asked the most is "Hi! How's the new job?", and the answer is, briefly, "awesome".
Less briefly, I really am loving it. I've enjoyed hanging around on docks with people I probably would never have met otherwise, hanging out on That Ocean I Used To Play On. You're all very friendly! The other OMs have been very helpful when I come across something and run screaming. ("Arteeeemiiiiis! What do I doooooooo?"). So far I think I'm doing pretty well. This is not to say that I haven't booched, because I have, in one case rather spectacularly, but fortunately I got called on it very quickly and shown how to fix it.
The oddest thing is that things I used to be absolutely certain of as a player, I'm now not certain about, because suddenly I have to be absolutely correct, and make sure I only give out public information. People are relying on me to give them the right answer, and it's like an exam from when I was in school - I could be completely certain that, for instance, Cleopatra was one of the Ptolemies, and then I'd see it on the exam and *poof*. Doubt. So forgive me if I'm taking a little while longer to answer questions - I'm checking my answer. I'm confident in my ability to do the job. I just want to spend that little bit of extra time to make sure I get it right.
