The start of work
During a study session with my boss on the first day, after about one hour I suddenly get sleepy and simultaneously my stomach starts making quite loud bubbling noises. Feel embarassed, while at the same time trying to stay awake and not to yawn.
While handwriting these notes into a notebook, I vaguely recall a story (must have been some movie or from Dostoyevsky?) where a young guy gets kicked out from his job after notes he was taking while in bureau were found.
All colleagues around seem glued to their desks and laptops, they dont take breaks or go out for a coffee.. It does not seem there is anything like grab a laptop and go to work in a cafe nearby. Things are picking up in the second half of the week - I get a hold of a few things I have been studying, get a laptop and get to know the colleagues a bit.
