Today was my first day of work.

I gave myself ample amount of time to encounter a bunch of problems this morning, because I was sure I would mess something up. I almost got on the wrong train, but luckily the people of NY are so far I haven't exactly had the best of luck with asking people. Most people can't speak english and many are tourists/newcomers just like me, but anyhow - the majority of people have been super nice.

I finally got to my stop - Canal St. Luckily the entrance to my building was actually in the Subway, so I entered the AT&T building. I immediately got fingerprinted, and now my left index finger will serve as my access card for the rest of my time here. Pretty crazy...On my way up to the 19th floor, I walked to the receptionists and I told them I was an intern. They asked who I was here for, and I (being a dumb intern) told them I was here for BBH - as those words came out of my mouth I slowly turned around saw a HUGE BBH - like life-size bbh sign...The receptionist laughed at me (because obviously I was there for BBH - I was on their floor) Anyway, the tour was crazy, I kept getting lost. They introduced me to the full-time open coffee bar, along with a cereal bar, with all the breakfast and lunch foods available at any time. 

Then I was introduced to all the people that work there(roughly 200) I barely remembered anyones name. I got to my desk and filled out paper work, and then followed around different people witnessing their everyday routine. I spent the most time with the creative retoucher - the stuff he did blew my mind. I thought I actually knew a lot about photoshop...I was wrong. I better start practicing, quick.

I ate some thai food for lunch which was amazing. Then I got my computer set up and that was about it for the day. I had no idea everything would be like this. I felt like I was on the Hills - it was so surreal. 

Ok enough braggin, sorry.

Off to bed...cheers to longevity.
