I hadn't had a First Day at Work for 11 years, to the day. There's a lot to worry about, for a born worrier like me...

don't panic

the first day

Can I help? Yeah. I think I can. Not overnight, but all in good time.

I want to bottle this feeling because I know that over time I'll feel heavier with context and angles and responsibility, but right now I appreciate the lightness of feeling that comes with finishing a day, comfortable with not knowing.

warm evenings
