“adulting” 101 (my first week on the “job”)

Just finished my first week of internship (May 30 to June 3) !!!!! *cringe*

(UPDATE: I only have two weeks left before my internship ends!!!! Grabe ang busy busy na. Pwede ba bumalik sa first week? Hahaha)

Here’s a rundown of what happened on my 1st week as an intern.

DAY 1 : Mc Mc Mcdo sa umaga at tanghali

Sumakay ako sa FX papunta sa office. Hindi ako binababa ng FX dun sa dati kong binabaan (nung nag-interview ako para sa internship na ito). Medyo nagpanic ako nang super slight at nagstay ako dun sa overpass palakad lakad habang tinawagan ang kapatid ko. Eventually nafigure out ko na rin siya at naglakad papunta dun. Timecheck: 8:04 am. WOW! Ang aga ko pa pala! May nakita akong malapit na Mcdo. Ah life saver! Tumambay muna ako dun habang hinihintay si P (yung kasama ko din sa internship na ito). Wala akong planong bumili ng pagkain kasi nagbreakfast naman ako sa bahay. Pero iba talaga ang tukso ng mabangong fries and burger.

Pagdating namin sa office, dinala na kami nung isang HR dun sa unit/dept namin. Nakilala namin yung supervisors at yung iba pang interns.

First hour: Chill lang. Pinaupo kami dun sa isang cubicle.

5 mins after that: Me to myself: Shet, wala ba kami gagawin dito ang boring naman.

30 mins later: Sinabihan kami ng supervisor na chill lang muna kami, may ipapagawa daw siya later.

An hour before lunch time: Supervisor explains kung ano gagawin. (I won’t explain it here masyado technical).

Lunch break: Nahihiya pa kami sumabay sa ibang interns kaya kumain kami sa Mcdo.

After lunch break: Trabaho. Trabaho.

A few hours later: Supervisor check our work. Good job daw.

A few hours later: Biometrics. Oooh fingerprint. Feels legit.

A few hours after that: Tambay. Tambay. Nganga. Nganga. Chill chill. Supervisor comments that we should make “chika” with other interns.

*Talked with  M and T. Super bait nila  :)))*

The rest of the day: Tambay. Tambay. Chill. Pagsapit ng 6, nagpaalam sa supervisor, at umuwi na.

Thoughts habang nakapila sa sakayan ng FX (na may katabing batang umiiyak sa right at magjowang ma-PDA sa left) : Shet tama ba desisyon ko? Dapat ba hindi ako nagsettle dito? Oh god, ganun na lang ba gagawin namin everyday? Ang boring naman. Maybe i’m not for this. Shet ano na sa future? Dito rin ba bagsak ko? Shet nag-ooverthink siguro ako baka naman ganun talaga pag first day. Masyado siguro ako nasanay na busy at palaging may ginagawa. Hayyy. I hope tomorrow’s better.

Day 2: Tuesday is pretty meh.

Pretty much the same as Day 1. May ginawa kami for our supervisor. (Technical stuff). Also  bought lunch with our fellow interns. Then work, work, work, after. Then kaunting chill hanggang matapos ang araw. Nalipasan siguro ako ng gutom kasi pagsakay sa FX sobrang sakit ng ulo ko, feeling ko may construction site sa utak ko.Wala pa akong ganang kumain pag-uwi. Natulog ako ng 8pm (ang pinakamaagang tulog ko simula nang mag-aral ako sa UP!).Thankfully, nawala siya pagkagising ko the next day.

Thoughts habang nakahiga sa kama: So ganito pala pag working na tapos may sakit, bakit parang mas mahirap?

Day 3: Ang breezy and sleepy 

(I stopped writing because I was too sleepy.)

(UPDATE: As of 6/22/16, I’m almost four weeks in in my internship. And I honestly can’t remember what happened in Day 3 and Day 4 so let’s skip to Day 5, shall we?)

Day 5: With extra melted cheese PLEASE!!!

The details are a little foggy now but I think we analyzed a codes and made a report that day. Ahhh, wait now I remember – that was the day when all of the bosses are out. I mean, the supervisors and our unit heads are gone for fieldwork that day so all of us interns we’re hanging out – chilling, telling stories, and playing games. I remember we played some movie guessing game and watched funny videos on Youtube. After that day, P and I ate a pizza at Sbarro and I remember ordering extra melted cheese on my pizza because I was sooo famished ( wow, famished? lakas makaburgis!) gutom na gutom na ang kaluluwang kong nagpapaalipin sa corporate world (char). Anyway, it was a very yummy and cheesy way to end the week.
