In This Week's News

I just got back from my first day at Nu Skin. I only had a half day of New Employee Orientation and will have another half day tomorrow of the same. But I just loved it. I am really excited to be working for this company; I really think it is going to be a great company to work for. I even got some face moisturizer already :) We introduced ourselves (most everyone else are part-time workers for the call center, but there was one other Regulatory guy), we watched a couple of presentations, did paper work, got our ID badges, and even went on a tour of the offices up top. They were pretty amazing, they were all the offices on the 9th floor for the head honchos. Lots and lots of cool artwork, nice views, and one office even had a ton of Disney memorabilia.

I even took advantage of some sweet deals this weekend to prepare for my new job. Hence, the new member of our closet:

Sweet, huh?

And here is what Christian has been up to:

Growing a seed for his LDS Marriage and Family Class. If his plant dies he fails the project. I'm not exactly sure how much this project is worth... but so far his little plant keeps on growing.

Next Monday...

I will begin work at Nu Skin. For those who hadn't heard yet, I was offered a job at Nu Skin as a Regulatory Specialist. That means I get to deal with the law... they make personal care products and also dietary supplements and they are very international so I get to make sure they are following the different countries' laws basically. It is definitely an upgrade from being a lunch lady. Forty hours a week, awesome benefits, right on Center Street in Provo, and it is pretty closely related to what I studied. I really liked the Food Regulation course I took at BYU so this is pretty much on the same page.

On a related note, I offically quit as a cook for the Provo School District today. Which also happened to be my very first day since I finished training. I felt a little bad quitting after only working for 3 weeks but you do what you have to.
