Today was interesting because in the same day I had a (very nice) nun call in and have me pass a message to her doctor, and then had to call two priests for one gentleman who was having a spiritual crisis prior to surgery (the first priest didn't get back to us so we contacted the backup priest, who did). We were joking about that later about how "Two priests and a nun" sounds like the setup of a joke.

This Saturday definitely went smoother than last week, and I'm pleasantly surprised at how fast I'm picking it up. I still sat next to a supervisor in case I had questions, and indeed I had many questions, but some of the answers are so esoteric that they didn't expect me to know them. They also keep telling me to not be so hard on myself when I do mess up, but I think of it as holding myself to the same standards I hold other people to, otherwise I'd be a hypocrite. Oh well. Philosophical difference I guess.

"to not be so hard on myself when I do mess up"

Well, you probably got that from me. That may surprise you, because while I was like that a lot when I younger, I've been less hard on myself since I left the corporate job-that-shall-not-be-named in 1995, where we were encouraged to punish ourselves psychically if we made quite human mistakes.
