Currently at House of Representatives and doing internship. It’s very quiet here, having 3 members of the staff and the big boss not here. Not to mention that my supervisor happens to be also a close friend.
Don’t be fooled with the situation, however.
I need to be on my toes. Mark warned me that things here are unhurried but things can brew up when the unexpected happens. Plus, since I am a newcomer, I tend to be overenthusiastic. It takes a lot to curb my exuberance, plus the fact that I always heckle with my “boss”. He has a face to maintain and most of the people I see here are in awe of him (I had to bite down the urge to smile). I have to remember that I am here as an intern. Self-control is one of the things I sadly lack but must keep a supply, if I want to pull this off.
I must say that I am very excited with the new experience (hindi lang halata, haha) because I also miss being inside the office. Almost half a year ago, I resigned from my job to continue my studies and I had been doing it for the last 5 years. I can’t say I’m thrilled with the idea of being confined inside a cubicle (albeit the office is too nice and is not a cubicle. Think of it as a condo, haha.)
Anyway, have to go for now. Will continue tomorrow.
