I've been getting asked if I'm excited about my new job lately, so I'd like to address that as succinctly as possible here.

In short, no, I'm not excited to have been hired. I'm excited to have the opportunity to make myself an asset, however. The goal is not to get a job, and merely survive. The goal is to thrive, to vindicate those who invested time, money, and effort in you. The goal is to prove them right.

So: Excited to work towards contributing in a meaningful way, to feeling - however we might define this - good at my job. 

One week in, and I feel as if I'm on my way. But there are miles to go, and complacency is nowhere on the horizon.
