One of the most difficult parts of starting something new is figuring out how to fit into what already exists.When you are new to an existing situation, you will find yourself on the Outside of a lot of Inside jokes and stories. It is best not to try to immerse yourself into the ongoing politics that may be surrounding some of the people where you are. This is your opportune time to observe what is going on and more importantly how people interact.

By using your observation capabilities you will easily see where you will want to align yourself. Not everyone will like you or get along with you. Conversely you will not like everyone or get along with everyone either. At first you may feel as though it is going to take forever for you to find a place where you are comfortable. But before you know it you will have your very own little niche in your new surroundings.
