My first rush hour! Not as bad as expected… Once I made it to the parking garage, the Cincinnati Police did us all a favor by rating the safety of everybody’s vehicles in the garage. By taking a peak in everybody’s cars they were able to assess the likelihood of getting broken into of each car. I’m going to go ahead and brag about my perfect score. Had someone broken into my car, it appears as if I had nothing there to be stolen. This makes me wonder if…
A. I should be happy that I had nothing valuable visible and would not be an easy target.
B. If I should be concerned that enough people get broken into in this garage for the police to be handing out these cards…
C. I need some stuff in my car because it’s currently pretty boring in there
Either way, I thought this was an interesting detail of my first day in downtown Cincinnati. It is definitely different experiencing work in the hustle and bustle of the city as opposed to at school or in the suburbs, where I have previously had jobs. I guess it is all part of the experience.
Typical intern activities on the first day include:
It is very safe to say I’ve managed to accomplish all of these things, so I would have to call it a very successful day. Even though it was a tad nerve wracking showing up at a new place, everybody at Macy’s is very welcoming and supportive. I’ve realized that everybody truly wants to help me out and help me succeed at my internship. There is no question too silly to ask or comment to ridiculous to make.
Although I love the office where I am located, a large portion of my job requires travel so I will not be able to see it very much this summer. It will be a short visit before embarking on many trips to many cities.
