learning French

I'm in a new department.
new department = new systems
new systems = new language
new language = me confused
me confused = Brad telling me it's gonna be all right.

I love my new role.  I'm a fan of small groups.  I was taught much of what I'm immersed in now in different contexts with different terminology...but it's all kind of the same.  What's really throwing me are our systems.  I can't find the stuff I need.  I can't even find the people that I'm looking for.  I keep hearing about, and even bought, the elevator pass...but it's nowhere in sight.

It feels a bit like I'm learning a new language.  I already know what a fetzer valve is, I just don't know how to ask for it in French.  And let's be honest, those French guys would never give me a fetzer valve anyways.  Not in this economy.

So I'm off to go find some forms, meet with some people and eventually I'm hoping to get hooked on phonics.

  1. The English aren't stingy with fetzer valves, Sean, so you're ok there.
