The Office

Nah, don't get your hopes up - it'll be about me again, not the TV series (which I have never seen, by the way).

Today was first day of work!

.     .     .     .     .

On Friday I went for a meeting with the director of a Polish travel agent's that co-operates with my company and after I left, I just couldn't wait to go back there Monday morning and start working!.. I know, right?

Was pretty excited and happy today, which I guess isn't really a state of mind I shared with the majority of the working class. Got to the office a bit before 10 am (my official working hours are 10-6 but the real ones are more the "when I work, you work" sort of thing) to sign the contract and waited for my boss's arrival. He got there, gave me a fancy notebook and I was finally ready to note down what I was supposed to be doing.

It was a rather laid back day and it picked up a bit of pace when it turned out I was leaving for my first business trip this very Thursday! It's a pretty cool one - the boss and I are going to Poznań for some travel fairs and staying there till Saturday, but at the same time it's horrible - there's a big international conference I've been hired to work at as a journalist and interview panelists coming down here from allover Asia and Europe, and 2 days before the event starts I had to notice my editor I wouldn't be able to be there! Instead of interviewing people till 10pm I've till 11:45 am, when I have to run to catch my train. I felt really shitty, and still do, but there's not much I could do. Actually, there's nothing I could do - the job will pay the bills, so it has to come first.

Oh, how I'm growing up!
