Working in Circle City, Day 1: Many Firsts

My new job is downtown Indianapolis. Today was my first day for a whole list of things!

🚗 Parked in a parking garage all day
🚶🏼‍♀️ Walked 5 minutes to work
🍳 Had breakfast by myself downtown
🛍 Shopped in two stores by myself downtown
🍕 Had lunch at Giordano’s
💻 Thoroughly used a MacBook Pro

I’m sure there’ll be lots of firsts in the coming months. I finally feel like I’m in an environment and community where I can grow. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. They care about your wellbeing. You’re encouraged to learn and educate yourself all the time.

Supporting your team matters. It makes an entire world of difference.

An Indiana Supreme Court judge picked the name Indianapolis by sticking the state's name together with the Greek word for "city."

Don't eat on top of your macbook, as a single crumb will mess up your keyboard!

(also, don't use a mac, but that's another story…)

I don't use one in my personal time. :)
