My work starts at 10am. But since Nancy (my PG-mate) leaves by around 8:40 or so (she has work at 9), I go with her. And even though I’ve just been two days into it, I seriously love it. 🙂 There’s something so wonderfully refreshing about a walk early in the morning. Since I had all the time in the world, I took my time getting to my workplace…I looked around at all the places, I observed the people rushing to work and slowly made my way to the office.
Today was a lot better and different. 🙂 I was assigned to a different person. She is a really sweet person, took time to explain things to me very patiently and gave me something to do while she went away for a meeting. By the time she got back, I was done with it. We had lunch together (she talked me into eating with her). We spoke a lot…about the company, how satisfied she is with her job, so on. After some talking, both of us realized that we are similar in a lot of ways. I have rarely met people who are really into reading, like, passionate about it. She is someone who falls in that category, along with me! 🙂 We spoke about books, places where I’d find books, so on. And guess what? She writes, too. She is someone who finds happiness in writing and wants to develop it, just like me! 🙂
Apart from this, there were a lot of random incidents that added some bit of difference to the day. I got a bit closer to some people at work. I’ve learned some more about my work. I walked back by myself (that’s an achievement because I suck at directions). I went in to this library kinda place I had been eyeing since I saw it first, asked about their procedure (there was this cute guy who explained it to me! :P). I got to eat something I totally love.
So, I guess I’m finally getting what I wanted – new experiences. 🙂
So, so, so… I never thought I’d actually be saying this so soon. But I’m working/employed. 🙂 Today was my first day at work. I moved to my new ‘home’ last night. It was fun! I had to come here all by myself, finding the way somehow. Apart from me, there are 5 other girls staying here, all of them elder to me but just by a couple of years or so. And I found someone who matches my wavelength to a great extent. Her name’s Nancy. All the girls are friendly but it’s going to take some time for me to feel ‘at home’ over here.
Anyway, today was my first day at my first work. The workplace is within walking distance from my PG (Paying Guest) home. Nancy works in the same area; so, I had company to walk to work. It wasn’t as pleasant as I wanted it to be. Because it started raining and I got kinda wet. Anyway, that definitely didn’t dampen my spirits. 🙂 I reached the office well ahead of time. After the initial intro-talk, I was assigned to a senior. She turned out to be a super-sweet person and made me feel so much at ease. I was introduced to everyone in the office; a couple of them spoke to me.
I liked my first day, even though it was kinda tiring and a tiny bit boring. Everyone around me ran around, busy with stuff to do, while I sat there with absolutely no idea of what to do! 🙂 And even they didn’t know what work to give me ,since I didn’t know anything in depth. For today, I just got some basic, boring work to do…just stuff to help me get an idea of what lies ahead. 🙂 In short, I liked it. Let’s see what Day 2 holds in store!
It gets a little intimidating, at times, since I’m the youngest over here. I’m trying my best to grasp what I’m supposed to do. I guess it will take some time. Right now, I feel like I’m in some other world. So away from family…basically, away from anyone I know, leading a completely different life from the one I’ve had till now. And trying to be happy with it! 🙂
