It's called a calendar

Today, it was my first day at my first job, I got up early, got ready, waited an hour for HR to call. I called them instead and they didn't answer, so I wrote an email to the partners. It turns out I got the first day date wrong. Some first impression. FML

Assuming you were asking about your first day early, and not days after you were supposed to have started working - It’s not a bad thing to be seen as eager to start your job. I don’t think they will hold that against you.

I assume you had an offer letter or you replied specifying your start date. With that information in your hand, you should have put that on your calendar with appropriate reminders. Then you wouldn’t have suffered this panic attack.
