Day One…

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! 🙂
