I just love the narrow, cavernous streets, and all the old buildings. Although there does seem to be a fair amount of new buildings.
Yesterday was my first day at my new Census job and it was surprisingly great. They have to hire thousands of enumerators and I’m in the group that’s calling thousands of people to ask them if they want a job. Most people said “YES!” and were, like me, grateful for the work.
All day long I got to call people and give them good news. “You applied for a job and there’s a position available, do you want it?” “YES!” “It’s yours!” “THANK YOU!” It was nice.
Plus, I like the people I work with. The office is in a place that’s easy to get to, so I’m good.
Okay, I am a little freaked about how little time I have left now for writing, interviewing and reading for my new book. I’ll manage, I’m sure. But I am a little stressed. I can’t lie.
Don’t you love this street though? Isn’t this how you imagine New York to look? This is where I get to go to work every day.
