was mentally draining.
So much things I don’t know. I hope I’m not expected to remember everything that was said to me. At one point, my brain died and I just nodded at whatever my colleagues told me even though I have no idea what they were talking about.
The boss was quite nice, though. He treated me and some colleagues to lunch because it was my first day. My colleagues seem nice. Some of them are friendly and helpful; some I haven’t had the chance to know yet. I observed some office politics even in this small company, though I don’t know what’s going on… yet.
This job has many perks that I like. I get free and easy parking. The workplace is near my home – it takes less than 20 minutes to reach the office and around 15 minutes to get home. Maybe it’s just the first day’s blues, but this job doesn’t seem like my cup of tea. It’s very rigid, and you have to be really careful and particular about the little details. I seem to be given a big responsibility, and I’m still on probation! Don’t know if I’m cut out for this…
I’m giving myself 3 months.
How was your first day at work like? Is what I’m feeling normal?
