Hey, would you like to know how my first day at my first job went?
Just look at this:
It is actually easier to show you a picture instead of words considering the amount of pain my arms and hands are going through right now.
If you didn’t know, the job is at a factory. Assembly. All the people that had told me about their experiences working in a factory, made me picture something really boring, but not at all what mine looks like. No, no, not that it wasn’t boring, because OH believe me, it was tedious. I just really thought that the work was like putting some little pieces together or something like that, simple. To my surprise, not that I like to separate men jobs and women jobs, but this is definitely something men do.
It was hard, it was big, I had to use a lot of strength, there were a lot of things to do……and all of that under 40 seconds. Trust me, there are so many steps, I think that to expect me to do it in my first day under 40 seconds it was a little too much.
Silly me that thought my only worry was the people and my lack of ability to communicate with them. That actually was nothing compared to the actual work. I didn’t understand a lot of what some people told me, but you know, I just laughed, smiled, nod, and just said “okay”. But really, I’m so proud of me, because I had the courage to say more than three words to someone in English, and it felt good.
I guess I’ll let you know if I get used to it.
Without forgetting the real point of this post, let’s talk about this week’s photo. In the last one, I said that being barefoot on the snow wasn’t that painful, but that’s due to the fact that I never stood on it. For this image, I decided to do it. It was…let’s say, funnily painful? It made me laugh. And it made me smile. It was like standing on ice, nothing funny about that so I really don’t know why it made me feel that way.
Anyway, I’m really happy with it, let me know what you think.
P.S. While you’re reading this, I’m probably at work..so if you could just pray for a second and ask for HELP for me, I would be grateful. (: -___-
P.S.P.S. What the actual heck is wrong with this factory? Only a 15 minutes lunch? How do you expect me to walk to the break room, go to the restroom, reheat my food, eat it and go back to my line in such a ridiculous amount of time? HOW?
