Guess who injured her foot and had to push back orientation with Crete? Me. 😢 bummed but my recruiter told me it wasn't a big deal and to just let him know when to reschedule. I see my podiatrist on Wednesday. Should be cleared then, not a bad injury. I just feel bad, dont want the recruiter to think I'm not committed or I'm wishy-washy. He was real cool about it. He said either way I'm a new driver so I have to do my 6-8 weeks training. Orientation can happen whenever. I just dont want to be out of a truck too long. Anyway thanks everyone I'll be keeping everyone updated.

Hey Cecilia, don't sweat it. This isn't even a mistake. File this under the "stuff" happens folder. Crete isn't going anywhere. And nobody at Crete took this personal or anything of the such. They want you there just as much as you want to be there. Biggest thing is getting 100 percent healthy. Looking forward to reading on your journey. Are you going to do a training diary?
