Hellooooo (echo, echo, echo…) out there! I have finally reached the big bad world of the Internet and I’m ready to show it who’s boss. Me. My name is Erin Flesch and I am the new Editorial Intern here at brass. It’s coming up on the end of my first week and I’m not gonna lie, it started off a little rocky. As much as it pains me to admit this, I missed my first day due to a nasty stomach flu that came out of nowhere. And by nowhere I mean most likely the raw eggs I chose to ingest the night previous from brownie batter. Or maybe it was the Chinese food I ate that had been sitting in my fridge all week. However, all of that is but dust in the wind (um, is that still a saying?) because I am so happy and honored to be working at brass. After working here one week I can honestly say that this is one of the coolest jobs an English major like me could ever hope to find. In addition to the prestige of having my own desk, which in itself is a pretty big deal, I also have been given actual writing assignments and responsibilities! My mom is so proud. I have spent the majority of my first week catching up on past issues of brass|MAGAZINE and watching videos about brass on YouTube (yup, reading mags and watching online videos…that's so cool). My favorite part about being here, though, is feeling like a grown-up for the first time because I am finally in an environment that treats me like one. Working alongside smart, creative and talented young people doing what I love to do is pretty much the best scenario I could hope for. So thanks to brass, I won’t let you down! That’s all from me for now. I tend to ramble, so it’s best to end this. Don’t worry though ‘cause you’ll be hearing a lot more from me in the future, so introduce yourself, write a comment and let's get to know each other!

Sup new kid on the block. I hope you're as cool as Donnie Wahlberg. Something tells me you're going to be even better.

Well Donnie Wahlberg is clearly the coolest of NKOTB (that acronym just rolls off the tongue...) so he's pretty tough competition but I appreciate the vote of confidence!

Another Erin Flesch

I just stumbled across this blog. I had no idea there was another Erin Flesch out there! I thought my last name was pretty rare, so to find someone with the exact first name AND last name is pretty awesome!

How do I handle being the new kid on the block when my boss is making it more difficult?
I just began a new job a bout 1 1/2 months ago. As expected being the new kid on the block is challenging sometimes but here's the catch; My boss talks crap about me and I know about it we have a very close working situation and when certain people change their attitude around you its obvious. I have helped her out a great deal since startig and have been keeping myself up and above par since day one.

I have no idea how to handle this situation, and any pointers for a boss who is making things diffuclt would be great!

That sounds like a very awkward situation. Have you tried confronting (in a positive way) your boss? It may clear the air and give you both an opportunity to fix the problem, if there is one. It might also be prudent to start looking for a new job. Some things may not be fixable.
