Nervous, tensed, lazy.. Thats what I thought the week before our OJT at Mindshare but that changed to confidence and enthusiasm as soon as I woke up. In fact, It felt exciting so much that my stomach flew buttlerflies.
I woke up 6:00 AM. I stretch a little then had my breakfast, took a cup of coffee (semi-barako style) while I lit my cigar. I entered the bathroom and took a bath, I shaved, I brushed and everything that needs to be done on my only time alone while inside the bathroom. After everything was done, including fixing myself Me, my mom and my cousin head straight to Makati to go to work. as for me, OJT.
9:00 AM: I arrived at the office on time together with my college friends. We found out that we have six (6) fellow trainees here at Mindshare. We, the Bedans (San Beda College) and three other trainees from UST. We signed some forms then waited on our respective workstations for tasks and assignments. The day went by and because it was only our first day, there were only little work to do, including some introductions and orientations to the company and little getting-to-know act for the other interns.
6:00 PM: This is the best part of the day, the dimissal and the long walk to the shuttle station. I enjoy walking so I don’t have anything particular to complain about it. Its healthy right, and everybody here do it as well. I went straight to my twin nieces’ place to have dinner because my family was there also, but at this point, I might say that this will be another entry on my blog post.
So there, its just a little introduction to my life on my current activities and training. No pictures yet, its a little awkward to take pictures during the first day so not today. I really enjoyed my day and I look forward for more lessons to be learned on the succeeding hours of my OJT.
These past few months, February to March, my days became much busier because of my college requirements and schedules that crushed most of my free time. But as of today, I’m now a free person, free from schedules and academics, so that means more time with my love and myself but that exclude my schedule for ojt. Its summer and its vacation again, but not for me because I I have said earlier, I have an Ojt. I am good to start for my training in Philippine Airlines, I wish I could use that to experience boutique hotels overseas to experience their local specialties and culture including their historic approach to their lovingly luxurious services. Anyways, I still have an exam for Mindshare Phils tomorrow. I think I will be having an exam on their other arm which is Maxus. They are called Group M because as far as I know, companies like Maxus, Mindshare, Media edge have already merged to form a really powerful advertising company. I guess I have to make it good for tomorrow’s exam so I can start training soon.
