Coincidence? I think not!

Isn't it funny how things seem to happen semi-randomly but then the odd time something will happen that seems to be a little too coincidental? Such as a song that just happens to be playing when some other type of event happens. This morning was one of those times.

On the last day of my last job I was getting into my car listening to my miniDisc player and an Incubus song came on, called 'Nice to know you'. It was so perfect, I mean I can't think of a better chorus than that, for the last day of working for a company you hated.

So today I started my new position at work, in QA, I've been in Tech Support for about 10 years or so, and it was time to change things up. I was feeling very unenthusiastic about things and I really needed something new. Plus I'm really tired of having to talk to people on the phone, and try to solve their problems, no matter how ignorant or semi-retarded they are.

This morning the same song came on, this time on the radio. Coincidence? I think not!

Here are the lyrics for the chorus of the song, if you're not familiar with it:

"I haven't felt the way I feel today
In so long it's hard for me to specify.
I'm beginning to notice
how much this feels like a waking limb...
pins and needles,
nice to know you,

Yeah, it's been 2 weeks now and I'm starting to get the hang of things. It's enjoyable having new things to do and new challenges. Life without challenge is stale and dismal.

Also it's nice not answering the phone, yeah, that too. :)
