Re-entry to work has, thus far, been pretty brutal. Who are all these people (oh, they're my team) and why are they looking at me like I'm going to do something for them? (Fuck, I'm their manager.)

In a spasm of self-defense, the one thing I did on my first day back was to move three of my people under another one of my people. In one stroke this made him a manager, and gave me three indirect reports.

I'm a boss's boss!

As of today, I have a direct report -- which is to say, I'm a manager. I am somebody's boss. In three months I'll have more.

It was a 12-hour day and it felt soooo much longer because of the head explodey. I talked to HR a bunch, and moved my desk (again) and figured out temporary team seating. Honestly, 90% of this whole management thing so far is about seating.

(I'm going to have to make a non-Zillian group on LJ soon, so that I can rant a bit without ratting out my peeps to anyone. It was one thing when I was a TL, but now it would feel really wrong.)
